Cascade Slouch 2.0

Say ‘hello’ to my favorite beanie!!!

I have been making this beanie since 2013 and it continues to be my best seller year after year. It has evolved over the years and the 2.0 version is my absolute fave. It has a warm ribbed brim, great texture, the perfect amount of slouch, and quite quick to work up!

All you need is a worsted weight yarn, 6mm (J) and 5.5mm (I) crochet hooks, scissors, a darning needle and a measuring tape.

ABOUT THE DESIGN

The Cascade Slouch 2.0 has a slight slouch and a ribbed brim. This beanie really looks great with or without a faux fur pom pom and comes in 3 sizes. It is my most popular seller at markets all winter long!

SIZING + MEASUREMENTS

SIZEADULTYOUTHTODDLER
FITS HEAD CIRCUMFERENCE21-23” (53.5-58.5cm)20-21” (51-53.5 cm)18-19” (45.7-48.3 cm)

  • I like to break the rules! Pay close attention to the steps and bulleted notes as you work.
  • The beginning Ch does not count as a st until you reach the brim.
  • If there is a number after the st, make that st in the next number of sts (DC 2 – make a DC in the next two sts).
  • If there is a number before the st, make that number of sts in the next st (2DC – make two DC in the next st).
  • The Puff Sts go in the St-sp, meaning between two sts (between the posts). 
  • The first Puff St should be made after the beg Ch1 and before the first HDC throughout.
  • Beanies will be tugged and pulled when taking on and off, so don’t be afraid to give a gentle tug on your beanie to relax and set those sts in place, or better yet, give it a nice steam block when finished!
