We don’t have a large celebration of Valentine’s Day in our house. The Boy isn’t in school yet, so there’s no need to spend weeks planning Pinterest-perfect Valentines for his classmates, but I do think the sentiment is nice, and there’s nothing wrong with reflecting and thinking about ways we can better show our love to our family and firmed. So in that way, I am not a total Valentine’s Day Grinch. But even if you are, this Crochet Heart Stitch Hat (Puppy Love Slouchy) is a super cute and comfy slouchy that can be worn all winter long.

ADULT/TEEN SIZE HEART STITCH HAT:
HAT RIBBED BAND:
1. Hdc in 2nd ch from hook. Hdc in each ch. Turn. (7 sts)
2. Ch 2. Hdc in same st. Hdc in next 6 its in BLO. Hdc in last st, going through both loops. Turn. (7 sts).
Don’t tie off after last row.
Repeat row two until your band reaches about 18″ – 19″ for adult. You will get this measurement by gently stretching your band and measuring the length, not the pre-stretch length. You want the hat to be snug and due to differences in yarn stretchiness, I am not providing a row count. Instead, use your measuring tape. Don’t break yarn.
CROCHET HEART STITCH HAT BODY:
1. Fold the band in half, and using the loop from the last hdc, pull it through and sl st down the side, forming a band. Don’t tie off.
Turn the band, so the seam is on the inside and your loop is at the top.
Beginning where you left off sewing the band: Ch 1. Sc in same sp. From here, you will sc around the band until you have 72 total stitches. Join with a sl st with the first st, using 2nd color.
2. Ch 1. Dc 4 in same st. Ch 1. Sk 5 sts. *Dc 4 in next st. Ch 1. Sk 5 sts* work 11 times. Join with a sl st with the first st using Dove Heather. (60 sts)
3. Ch 2. Sc in middle of shell (not in a st, in the space between the stitches). Ch 2. Work a 3-dc cluster in the 3rd st of the 5 skipped sts from the previous round. *Ch 2. Sc in middle sp of shell. Ch 2. Work a 3-dc cluster in 3rd sk st from previous round* repeat all around the hat. Join with a sl st with first chain. (72 sts)
4. Ch 2. Dc in same st. Dc in each st around. Join with sl st. (72 sts)
Join 3rd color. (You can work in BLO this row for ease-of-use).
5. – 13. Repeat rows 2 – 4 respectively, changing colors when you make the hearts row.
14. Ch 2. Dc in same st. *Dc2tog, dc in next st* work 23 times. Work a dc2tog with last 2 sts. (48 sts)
15. Ch 2. Dc in each st around. (48 sts)
16. Ch 2. Dc2tog all around. (24 sts) Tie off.
To close the hat, turn it inside out. Put a length of yarn on your needle and sew in and out each stitch across the top. Pull it tight, cinching the top closed. Tie a very sturdy knot and clip end.
Finish with a pom pom on top (get the tutorial here).

Star Wars is one of my geeky fandoms (I am a HUGE Potterhead, too). For some reason, I forget about Star Wars Day (May the 4th) until it’s practically upon me.

Luckily, I got to it this year, but I have a Star Wars Crochet WEEK on my calendar for next year, so hopefully May 4th, 2019 will be a bit more exciting!
