Hoogah Slouchy Beanie-A Free Crochet Pattern

Sometimes the moment you see a yarn, you know exactly what you should make with it. This is what happened when I saw the Red Heart Hygge yarn in my local walmart. I’ll admit I was stalking the aisles for a few weeks after seeing others post about their stores getting new yarn. The thing about when you get this certain predetermined project idea, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is. The temperature here in North Carolina is showing no signs of the upcoming Fall, but that wasn’t going to stop me from making the comfiest fall/winter hat ever! I know for sure I will be wearing my Hoogah Slouchy Beanie often when the cooler weather hits! The fun thing about this hat is that it can be worn as a slouch or if you fold the bottom of the hat up, you can also wear it as a beanie, allowing you to change things up a bit depending on your mood!

Fun fact: I named this hat after the pronunciation that is included on the skein wrapper because I thought it sounded so fun!

I designed the Hoogah Slouchy Beanie for Design, Create, Repeat’s One Skein Wonder Blog Hop for the month of August! Find all the patterns links for this event here.
