These are the most awesome slouchy beanie crochet patterns that the people in your life will be glad you made!
Winter is just around the corner, and if you’re anything like us then you have no idea where your favorite beanie is or where to find your best coat.
And most of your close friends are in the same situation. And the kids, and your parents and anyone else on your holiday gifting list, I’m sure.
I decided that we were going to give all of the loved ones in our lives a little Happy Fall or Back to School gift and make them a slouchy beanie.
Slouchy Beanies are unequivocally the best type of hat for fall (and if you disagree we’ll see you outside!). During our search for the perfect pattern online, we couldn’t narrow the choices down to just one.
Instead, we settled for these 14 beautiful slouchy beanie crochet patterns.
But, before you head on down the list and pick the pattern you want to start with, be sure to pin this pattern collection to your favorite crochet inspiration board on Pinterest so you can find this list fast when you’re ready for your next project!
14 Awesome Slouchy Beanie Crochet Patterns
Gathered Buds Beanie Pattern
The benefits of this hat design keep going — it requires no increases or decreases, just start and go! The Gathered Buds Hat starts as an oval and is worked from the top down. That’s it, just a simple oval!
Crisp Dawn Slouchy Hat
This easy crochet hat pattern is one that is a favorite with the simple stitching. Two colors come together to create a simple brim that can lay flat or turn up easily depending upon your preferences. The crisp dawn crochet hat is one inspired by cool mornings and the need for a hat to keep your head and ears warm.
The Peachick Beanie
We thought we’d start with a beanie that provides the best of both worlds. This Peachick pattern looks great but isn’t too complicated to make, so it’s something even beginners can do.
The beanie only requires two stitches the whole way through, both of which can be picked up quickly. Its visual excitement comes from the changes in color. The pattern suggests that you use orange, gold, and purple, but you can use any set of colors that appeals to you. We think a teal and an emerald green would be a gorgeous combination.
It also suggests adding a pompom to the top. You can either purchase a pompom to accessorize your hat or make one yourself out of wool. See the end of the article for more detail.
Rustic Slouch Beanie
If you have paid any attention to the internet this year then you may have noticed that the early 2000s styles are back with a vengeance.
If you have a Y2K lover in your group of friends then everything about this hat is going to excite them – it even has a button. Don’t forget to make it in a pastel color.
Love My Buffalo Plaid Slouch Beanie
We are all in agreement that plaid is an essential part of fall fashion, right? So, why wouldn’t you want a plaid-style beanie to add to your collection?
You may not realize when you first look at the model photos for this pattern that it is a mock plaid piece, as some of the colorways are so subtle. But the black and white option is stunning. The photos make it clear that this pattern gives you the choice between subtle and bold.
You’ll need at least 2 (possibly 3 shades) and a pompom to complete this pattern.
3 ML Slouchy Beanie
Just beautiful details and a fun drape, this easy (and free) crochet pattern is a great beginner-friendly pattern to make a slouchy hat quickly.

Snow Day Slouchy Beanie
Beginners, this pattern is for you. Loads of people chose blankets as their first crochet project, but we think a beanie is a much better option.
This beanie only requires 1 shade of yarn and it uses 2 simple stitches.
Plain Jane Hat, Easy Crochet Slouchy Beanie
This is the perfect pattern for those of you that have some funky yarn you want to use up. The pattern is so simple, that you can use it to show off the dimension of a flecked or ombre yarn.
This pattern is easily adjustable for any head size. You can use it for both the adults and children in your life. It is perfect for making families matching hats.
Snow Ball Slouch Beanie
This is a pattern that is going to make you want to go out and buy a truckload of beautiful yarn. If the model picture for this pattern isn’t enough to get you to buy it then there is nothing we can say that will change your mind.
Beginners may want to stick to a single color of yarn, while more advanced users can attempt the ombre technique.
Chunky Gramercy Slouch Beanie
This is the hat for the people in your life who like to make a statement. The ones who like people to compliment them on every part of their outfit. And the people who want their little ones to look stylish too.
This pattern is full of texture but is still a delight to wear. If you choose to keep it simple and understated or go all out with the color combinations.
This is a great pattern for intermediate to advanced crochet fans. It does involve quite a few different stitches and regular changes of the yarn color.
Arien Slouch Beanie
This is the kind of hat that you will see on sale at most clothing stores this fall. It is timeless and it looks good on everyone.
We love the bold mustard used in the example photo, but a more exotic yarn – like a flecked or a multicolored yarn – would be just as good an option.
This pattern will be easy for crochet fans of all skill levels to follow. It only requires a few stitches that anyone can master. The pattern is easily adjustable to suit heads of any size. This will be helpful because everyone is going to want you to make one of these for them.
Unicorn Slouchy Beanie
No beanie list is complete without a unicorn slouchy beanie, we think you’ll agree?
This hat may not be beautiful to everyone, but there are a few people you know that will never want to take this hat off.
This is a pattern that beginners will want to avoid (or work their way up to) as it requires mastery of multiple stitches and shapes. Don’t forget to make a spare one to send to us.
Adult Snow Pine Beanie
If you forced us to pick a favorite of the 10, then we would probably go with this one.
Not only is it a beautifully shaped beanie from one of our favorite pattern makers (H2T has never made a pattern that has let us down), but this is a beanie that is so beautiful, we wouldn’t want to give it away once we’d finished it.
For this pattern, you will need 3 colors. If you want to make it a bit more festive, make your trees green and your headband red.
This is something that beginners may be able to do with a bit of practice, as the pattern work can be a little intricate.
