Children’s Textured Slouch and Neck Warmer – A free Crochet Pattern

Shortly after designing the Children’s Textured Toque (Found here), I was asked if I could create a Slouch version. I’m happy to say it’s now available!

Below you’ll find the pattern written out in full for the Children’s Textured Slouch Hat. It can be found in two sizes: toddler/preschooler and child (ages 5-12). Again they are worked in the Loops & Threads Charisma yarn which is a bulky weight yarn. They work up quick!

The other pattern you’ll find below is for a neck warmer. This year my kids have really been fighting the scarves and I understand why. They can be awkward, bulky, tricky to get on. So I whipped up a couple of neck warmers, and problem solved! I hope your kids enjoy the set as much as mine do 🙂

If you would like to purchase an ad free copy or you would like save this pattern to your favourites or add it to your library, you can do that here: RAVELRY or ETSY.

Skill Level: Easy

Yarn: Loops & Threads Charisma™ (%100 acrylic, 3.5oz. skein, 109 yds). Bulky Weight. Select two colours – you’ll need 2 balls of one colour for the body of hat and one other ball of a different colour for the pom pom. You may substitute this yarn for any other Bulky weight yarn such as Bernat Softee Baby Chunky™ by Yarnspirations™.

Hook: Size L-11 (8 mm) Hook. Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

Notions: Yarn Needle.

Neck Warmer: 19 in. circumference, 6 inches tall.

Child: Slouch: 8.5 in. tall, 20 in. circumference

Neck Warmer: 20 inch circumference, 7 inches tall

Stitches and Abbreviations:

Ch – Chain

Hdc – Half double crochet

Hdc2tog – Half double crochet two together

Knit Stitch (ks) – Also called the “waistcoat stitch,” the knit stitch is a single crochet worked through the middle of the single crochet or knit stitch of the previous round. Because you are working your stitch through the middle of the stitch in the previous round and pulling your loop up through the center, a knit look is created.

Knit Stitch 2 together (ks2tog) – Work the ks2tog as you would the sc2tog, but working through the space in the stitch of the previous round that you would typically work a knit stitch.

Rpt – Repeat

Sc – Single Crochet

Sc2tog – Single crochet two together

Sk – Skip

Sl st – Slip stitch

Pattern Notes:

– Pattern is written in American English terms.

– Pattern is worked in rounds from the bottom of hat to the top.

– Ch 1 at beg of rnd does not count as sc or hdc.

– Weave in ends as needed.

– I find the knit stitch works best when your tension is kept quite loose. Loose stitches allow for you to insert the hook in the proper space more easily.

– To work in the 3rd loop: In the hdc stitch, the “third loop” is found at the back of the stitch, below the top two loops that you would normally complete your stitch in. When you crochet in this back loop, it should push the top of the stitch from the previous round to the front of your work creating a “knit” look.
