Tons of Texture Slouch Beanie – it is all in the name! This beanie has such a unique, thick texture created by the stitches used. It looks beautiful with a heathered yarn and will really compliment a fall outfit. 

This pattern started as most patterns do. I was browsing Pinterest and saw a beautiful texture slouch beanie that I could buy for a certain amount or I could make it. Being the crafty person I am I decided to make it. There is nothing better than the ‘I can make that’ feeling. 

Finding the right stitch for this hat was so very important. I wanted the band to look knitted and decided to use the Yarn Over Slip Stitch to accomplish this. This is not a new stitch, but it was newer to me. I have created a video tutorial to walk you through how to do this stitch. Trust me it is not hard and you will want to use it on so many projects.

Now that I had a stitch for the band I needed a really unique  texture for the body of the hat. I made swatch after swatch of stitches looking for the right texture and finally found what I was looking for in the rustic looking Mini Berry stitch. This stitch provides such a unique thick texture! I made another video tutorial for this stitch as well so you will have no trouble making this slouch beanie.

A heathered yarn just really seemed to be the right choice for this beanie. So I turned to my favorite heathered yarn, Lion Brand Heartland! This yarn is super soft and a little light for a worsted weight acrylic yarn. When I worked up a sample it just clicked.

Video Stitch Tutorials

Yarn Over Slip Stitch

Mini Berry Stitch


Adult Hat Band

Leave a 6 inch tail before your slip knot.


R1: Yoslst in the second ch from the hook and in each ch across (6 Sts)

R2-58: Ch1, Turn, yoslst in each stitch across.

Do not fasten off. Use your tail to sew your first and last rows together.

Adjustment for Baby and Child Hats – For a Baby size hat only work 48 rows for the brim. For a Child Size hat work 54 rows for the brim.

Adult Hat Body

From where you left off,

R1: Ch 1, work one sc into the side of each of the band rows, slst to first sc.

R2-33: Ch1, turn, (Bst, sc) repeat until the end of the row, slst to the first Bst.

Fasten off leaving a long tail. Using your long tail sew a running stitch into the top of the hat. I wove my needle into every other stitch to make gathering the top easier. 

Adjustments for Baby and Child hats – For a baby size hat fasten off after row 22. For a child size hat fasten off after row 26 of hat body. Continue with gathering instructions.

When you are back to where you fastened off pull the thread tight to gather up the top of the hat. use the rest of the tail to sew the top of the hat shut and attach your pom pom.

Now, use the remainder of your yarn to make a pom pom. I like using the Clover Pom pom maker, attach a fur pom pom or just leave the top unadorned all options would look amazing!

  1. Thank you so much for the video tutorial for lefties! I rarely find them. Love your patterns and I can’t wait to start on a tons of texture slouchie beanie hat.

    • You are slip stitching to the first berry stitch at the end of each row. The pattern is worked in rounds by joining at the end of each row, turning and chaining up to the next row.

  2. So for the adult hat, it says to make the brim 58 rows. Is that right? Because I’ve done 58 and its only 18 inches when fully stretched and there’s no way it would ever fit an adults head.
