Free Men’s Slouchy Hat Knit Pattern with Straight Needles

To knit this Slouchy Hat, we’ll start by knitting the border. After that, we’ll increase the stitches for the hat. Once we’ve increased the stitches, we’ll add the design to the hat.

The shape of the cap looks like a pot. So, to achieve the shape of a pot in this hat, we’ve decreased the stitches twice. Let’s begin by knitting 2×2 rib stitch pattern for the border.

Knit Rib Stitch Hat Border

I have knit the border using a simple 2×2 rib stitch pattern. The pattern for the border is as follows:

Cast on– Cast on 110 sts on the needles.

Row 1 ( RS ) – * K2, P2 * repeat from * to * till end of the row

Row 2 ( WS ) – Knit in knit & Purl in purl

Follow both two rows and knit a 2-inch rib stitch border.

After completing the border, we will proceed to increase the stitches in the hat. We will be increasing stitches ( 22 STS ) from the wrong side.

Wrong Side – SL1, P3, * increase a sts, P5 * repeat from * to * ………….last 2 sts Increase a sts, P2.

Now we have 132 sts on the needle.

Here I have added a simple and evergreen Hat Knit Pattern. Even beginners will find it easy to knit because it’s based on a knit-and-purl pattern only. The pattern for this design is as follows:

Row 1 – Knit all sts

Row 2 – Purl all sts

Row 3 – Purl all sts

Row 4 – Knit all sts

Row 5 – Purl all sts

Row 6 – Knit all sts

Row 7 – Knit all sts

Row 8 – Purl all sts

Row 9 – * K1, P1 * repeat from * to* till end of the row

Row 10 – Knit in knit & Purl in Purl ( Knit sts always knit from the below the sts )

Row 11 – Same as row 10

Row 12 – Same as row 10

Row 13 – Same as row 10

Row 14 – Same as row 10

Row 15 – Same as row 10

Row 16 – Same as row 10

Repeat rows 1 to 16 again.

Decreasing Stitches

After knitting the pattern twice, we need to bind off some stitches when repeating the pattern a third time.

Repeat rows 1 to 2.

Row 3 – * P6, P2tog * repeat from * to * …………….. last sts P4

Repeat rows 4 to 16 again.

Now we have 116 stitches after decreasing.

We have knitted the design three times, and now we will make some knit and purl rows.

RS – Knit all sts

WS – Purl all sts

RS – Knit all sts

WS – Purl all sts

RS – Knit all sts

WS – Purl all sts

RS – Knit all sts

WS – Purl all sts

RS – Knit all sts

WS – Purl all sts

The second time, we will decrease the stitches.

RS – SL1, SSK, SSK, SSK, SSK …………….. last sts K1

After decreasing, we have 59 stitches now.

After decreasing the stitches for the second time, we must knit the design using the remaining stitches and complete the cap’s length.

WS – SL1, * K1, P1 * repeat from * to * till end of the row.

RS – Knit in knit & Purl in Purl ( Knit sts always knit from the below the sts)

Repeat the last row on both sides and complete the length of the cap 8.5 or 9 inches. After completing the length of the cap all stitches take on the swing needle and secure tightly all the stitches. At last, sew the cap.
