Slouchy Double Knit Hat Set

Designed by Jacquelyn Darragh

Highlight your cold-weather gear with this stylish hat and coordinating scarf, a perfect complement. This washable combination of wool and alpaca yarn is soft, stylish and warm.


Cast on 62 stitches in Stockinette. Lay anchor yarn of any color as it will be removed.

Work (6) rows in Rib stitch.
Change to Stockinette and work until the hat measures 5.5” from anchor yarn. Now, you want to decrease across the stitches, so the top of the hat will fit snuggly.

Decrease Row: Work (4) decrease rows. For each row, move the indicated loops from pegs and place to the adjacent pegs towards the center of the loom. This is same as a K2tog.

First decrease row: Starting at L side of loom, lift loops from pegs 6, 16, 26, 36, 46, 56. Place each one on adjacent peg going towards center of loom. Once moved, you have (6) empty pegs. Do this to both sides of the loom. Now, carefully lift loops and move over filing in the empty pegs. Work towards center of loom. Be sure to move both loops when you come to a peg with (2) loops. The result will be (3) less pegs at each end of loom for the hat. You will now have (56) stitches.

Work (3) stockinette rows.

Second decrease row: Move loops on pegs #4, 14, 24, 32, 42, 52. You will now have 50 stitches. Work (3) stockinette rows.

Third decrease row: Move loops on pegs #5, 13, 21, 29, 37, 45. You will have 44 stitches.
Work (3) stockinette rows.

Fourth decrease row: Move loops on pegs #4, 10, 15, 20, 24, 29, 34, 40.
Work (3) stockinette rows.
You now have (36) pegs on loom. Time to bind off of loom.

Bind Off: After last row, lay a new anchor yarn of same yarn. It will stay in.

Lift loops on one side of loom and place them on the pegs of other loom so that one rail has no loops and opposite rail has 2 loops. Lift bottom loop over top so that there is only one loop on pegs, and the anchor yarn is inside. Bind these stitches off loosely using 2-loop method (1 over 1). Sew side seam with invisible stitch. Gather top, using new anchor yarn and tie securely. Pull yarn to inside of hat, and take a few stitches inside to secure the opening. You can use the yarn tail of the anchor yarn for this. Tuck in any remaining yarn tails.

Bind off original anchor yarn with loose 1 over 1 bind off. Remove anchor yarn. Weave in yarn tails.

If a pompom is desired for top of hat, you can create and add when complete.


Note: In order to ensure that your scarf edges remain even and straight, be sure to work each row hooking over from left to center and then right to center. Vary the center point in each row.
