This year has brought so many changes, opportunities, and possibilities for me! For starters, I have been asked to be a contributing designer for Cre8tion Crochet! This is my very first post/design for Lorene and I am very excited to be bringing it to you today. The Subtle Chevron Beanie and Slouch is a chevron lovers dream! You get the awesome look of chevrons without it taking forever to work up. This hat is such a quick work up you will be wanting to make tons of them! By changing colors on different rounds, you can get different looks every single time you make this hat.

YARN: 2 or more colors of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn (or any comparable worsted weight #4 yarn)
MATERIALS: H hook, (1) 1-1.5 inch button, Yarn needle
GAUGE: 16st x 16 rows= 4 inches
Ch 17. Follow the directions used in the brim of the hat for 16 rows total.
STITCH GUIDE: Ch- chain, Sl st- slip stitch, Sk- skip, BLO- back loop only, FLO- front loop only, Sc- single crochet, Dc- double crochet,
- It is common for crocheters to tighten up their tension when working chevrons or skipping stitches. If you notice your hat starting to taper as you work the chevron section of this hat, please loosen up your tension or use a larger hook for this section.
- Color changes can be made on any rows desired
Subtle Chevron Buttoned Beanie and Slouch
Row 1: Sc in the second ch from the hook and in each ch across. Ch 1. Turn. (86)
Row 2: Sc FLO in each st across. Ch 1. Turn. (86)
Row 3: Sc BLO in each st across. Ch 1. Turn. (86)
Row 4: Repeat Row 2.
Row 5: Repeat Row 3.
-With the ribbed side of the brim facing you, count 7 st in from 1 end of the brim piece. Place a stitch marker through loop #7 and the beginning loop of the other end of the brim piece. This will create a circle with the brim and a flap for the button later on. (80)
-Lay brim out flat with the button flap piece laying in the left hand corner. From here, find the center back of the brim. (This does not have to be exact, just so that the seam will be in the back of the hat.) Take new piece of yarn and attach to the center-most stitch at the back of the brim with a sl st.
Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as Dc). Dc in the same st as Ch 2. Ch 2. 2Dc in the next st. **[(Ch 1. Sk next st. Dc in the next st)x3] Sk 2 st. Dc in the next 2 st. Sk 2 st. [(Dc in the next st. Ch 1. Sk next st) x3]* 2Dc in the next st. Ch 2. 2Dc in the next st.** Repeat ** to ** around until only 18 st remain. Repeat ** to * one time. Join to the top of the beginning ch 2.
Round 2: Sl st over to the 1st ch 2 space. Ch 2. Dc in the same space. Ch 2. 2Dc in the same space. *[(Ch 1. Sk next st. Dc in the next st.) x3] Sk next Dc. Fpdc around the next 2 Dc. Sk next Dc. [(Dc in the next Dc. Ch 1) x3]** (2Dc, Ch 2, 2Dc) in the next ch 2 space.* Repeat from * to * until 1 valley of the chevron remains. Repeat * to **. Join to the top of the beginning ch 2.
Repeat Round 2 until your hat measures 8.5 inches. This is for a beanie length hat. For a longer, slouchier look, continue repeating Round 2.
Fasten off leaving about an 8 inches tail.
-Turn hat inside out. Make the Chevron points meet and using the tail you left, begin to mattress stitch the points together. You will need additional pieces of yarn to sew up the top because you can only go up and down one point before you reach a dead end. Continue sewing with additional pieces of yarn until the top of the hat is closed. You may have a small hole in the very center of the top. This is OK and goes well will the holes throughout the hat.
-Line up the button flap with the brim of the hat. Sew your button through both layers to keep the flap down.
-Weave in any/all ends you may have.
