A little slouch goes a long way! These perfect little collapsed hats are a great way to learn Tunisian Crochet in the round, as well as a simple little way to add a touch of cool to every outfit. The stitches lend themselves nicely to a natural rolling of the edge, or fold up the brim for more of a beanie effect.
This pattern showcases 3 variations of the same hat and 2 different Tunisian Crochet techniques that can be used to work in the round
- Simply Slouchy (in Blue) : You can make this hat using EITHER Tunisian Loop or Double Ended Hook Spiral Method. Just choose your favorite! This hat can serve as a baseline for your own variations, including using Tunisian Loop to do Three Color Tunisian in the round.
- Tied Up (In silver grey): Work starts flat for this cap and then the rows are joined into rounds. This hat was designed for the Tunisian Loop Method.
- Eastern Gypsy - (with tassel in violet): This hat showcases the use of color. The Double Ended Hook Spiral Method shines when used for this kind of color work. The photograph features this hat with the optional tassels.
