Tom’s Seed Rib Slouchy Hat

Purple, lavender, and beige
Tom’s Seed Rib Slouchy Hat
Blue, navy and light gray

The slouchy hat can be made for men, women, or unisex by just using sock yarn. I have made several hats it in different colors and I will continue to make many more. They are fast and easy, perfect for ‘mindless’ knitting while watching TV. I used my favorite yarn Loops and Threads Woolike, but any sock yarn or similar weight will work. You can also make it using just one color, or use a self-striping sock yarn to create a unique striped effect.

1 skein each Loops and Threads Woolike in any two colors (85% Acrylic; 15% Nylon, 620m/678yds)
Size US 4 (3.25 mm) Circular Needles
Size US 4 (3.5 mm) Double Pointed Needles
Yarn needle
Stitch markers
Gauge: 18 stitches per 2 inches.
Size: Fits most medium (22-23”) to large (23-25”) sized heads since pattern is very stretchy. To make a smaller size, reduce the number of cast on stitches by numbers divisible by 4.

Seed Rib Pattern Stitch:
Round 1:Color 1, knit.
Round 2: K2, P2. Repeat to end of round.
Round 3:Color 2, knit.
Round 4: K2, P2. Repeat to end of round.

Hat Pattern:
Cast on 144 sts. Place marker and join.
Work the four rows of the pattern stitch for 10 inches alternating colors, ending with round 1.

Round 1: With Color 1, P2tog, k2. Repeat to end of round.
Round 2: With Color 2, Knit.
Round 3: P1, k2tog. Repeat to end of round.
Round 4: With Color 1, Knit.
Round 5: k2tog to end.
Continue with K2tog until you have about 10 stitches left.

Break yarn. Thread yarn thread and draw through the remaining stitches.  Weave in ends.

Orange, brown and cream (Still working on it)
