I pretended that today was cool enough for long sleeves and scarves. It truly was for a few hours, however when 2:00 hit while running errands, I soon realized that my scarf and sweater were killing me. Even still, I think I will pretend again tomorrow. If you are like me, pretending the weather is doing something different than it is (or it might actually be a bit cool where you are!), then give this cute Wolf Pup Slouchy Hat a try. I love the gradient variegated coloring in this Scarfie. It’s also kind chunky, which I like too!
WOLF PUP SLOUCHY HAT
Abbreviations: (American Terms)
Ch – chain
Sc – Single Crochet
Hdc – Half Double Crochet
Begin with a Ch 30.
1. Hdc in 3rd ch from hook. Hdc 27. Turn. (28 sts)
2. – 32. Work in BLO:
Ch 2. Hdc in same st. Hdc 27. Turn (28 sts)
(You can work more or less rows here)
Turn your ribbed rectangle 90 degrees and sc down one of the long side. Try to make them as even as possible.
Fold it in half, with the ribs running up and down. Sl st the two ends together, forming a short tube. Tie off.
With your side seam facing out, grab a length of yarn, and thread it through your needle. Then, go in and out through every other sc sts at the top of your tube, making long stitches. When you reach where you started, pull the string tight. This will cinch up the top of the hat, closing it.
Tie a very tight and sturdy knot. Turn your hat right side out. The knot and seam will be on the inside.
Ears: (use a gradient piece of yarn that matches the top of your hat best. Same colors look a bit better, than black on white, or white on black). Make 2.
Start with Ch 6.
- Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc 4. Turn. (5 sts)
- Ch 1. Sc in same st. Sc 4. Turn. (5 sts)
- Ch 1. Sc2tog. Sc. Sc2tog. Turn (3 sts)
- Ch 1. Sc 3. Turn. (3 sts)
- Ch 1. Sc3tog. Turn. (1 st)
- Ch 1. Sc. (1 st). Tie off.
Attach the ears on the top of the hat with a length of yarn and a yarn needle. For best results, try the hat on, and position the ears in a pleasing manner with pins. Sew along the bottom of the ears, going up from the inside of the hat. To keep them from flapping, sew up 1 or 2 rows more on the ears. This tacks them on a bit more securely. They look cute poking up a little, but are a bit cumbersome if they are attached only at the bottom.
Weave in your ends and attach a handmade pom-pom using this method.
