I love this hat and am making my second one! I have a question as I’m a newer knitter…I keep getting a seam up the hat where I have joined it. I join by adding an extra cast on, and am wondering if I should be joining it without that? Thank you in advance for your help!
Sorry for this late reply but here goes: When knitting in the round and adding purl rows, they are always offset, meaning you are not doing anything wrong, that is just how it is.
I am personally not bothered by it, and since there is nothing you can do (except knitting stockinette, where it doesn’t show up) I think you shouldn’t worry about it too much! 😉
Where can I get this pattern ?
Not sure if this still works, but worth a try: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-favorite-knit-slouchy/comments?posted=8956164#18 on the last post there is a link to the pattern.
How do I get this free pattern please ?
The pattern for this hat is available on ravelry.
Hi, I’ve just entered my email address to get this free pattern emailed to me and it hasn’t come through. Could you please explain why this would be.
Sorry for this tardy reply. This pattern is not one of ours but a free pattern on ravelry.com – meaning if you haven’t already an account there, you are going to have to create one. It is free – and you will find so much inspiration there! Once you are signed up you can either click on the link in our post, or just search for ‘favorite slouchy hat’ on ravelry,
Looks like the website with the pattern is gone – which is sad because I started knitting it in May 2017 and now in August I cannot find it anymore.. Ah well, I’ll just try to figure out from this picture on this blog 🙂
Our free patterns are as ever available on the blog, at the top in the menu. Just click on Espace Tricot patterns – Free! and you’ll get to all of them.
Oh boy, I totally misunderstood your comment… sorry!
I hope you’ll be able to finish your hat!

Any idea of the circumference the pattern would make with it’s 88 CO stitches? I’m knitting for a large male’s head, and I think I may need to size up. Thank you!
If you know the circumference of the head you are knitting for and the gauge of the pattern with 88 sts is about 2 inches smaller – then you should be fine. Remember, slouchy hats need to fit a bit more tightly than a regular one, the extra weight of the slouch needs to be held up.
Hope this helps,
Does anyone have a copy of this pattern it is no longer accessible on Ravelry. I would love to knit one!
I love this hat and just found “free pattern friday
I have been looking and looking for the pattern but can’t find it.
This pattern is not ours and at the time we picked it for Free Pattern Friday it was available for free. Unfortunately we have no influence whatsoever on the decisions made with the pattern, if the designer decides to charge for it or even removes it from the database. We are very sorry for this inconvenience, but at this time we also have no access to it.
I just saw this, it might be worth a try: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-favorite-knit-slouchy/comments?posted=8956164#18
To bod as I was about to knit this pattern after searching the net.
Check out the comment section of this pattern on ravelry, there are apparently ways to still get it.
Hi, there! How many inches d0 you knit before you start the decreases (from beginning of the ribbing)? The pattern does not include the length or # of rows for the body, just knit 2 rows/purl 2 rows, then knit 9 rows and purl 2 before the decrease, but how long?
We knit our sample as it says in pattern: (this is taken directly from the pattern)
[Knit for 9 rounds. Purl for 2 rounds.] x4
Meaning you knit 9 rounds, purl 2 rounds and do that four times.
We do not have our sample anymore, otherwise I would have measured it for you.
I propose to knit the four repeats and then see if you like the length, as it would be easy to add another repeat.
Happy knitting, as ever!
I want to make this in a smaller version for 10 yr old. How do I size down for a child?
I would suggest casting on 8 stitches less, follow the pattern and then when it comes to the decreases, just skip the first decrease round (from 88 to 80 sts) and start with the second.
Happy knitting, as ever.
