Ever since I wrote the Waffle Cone Slouchy hat pattern, I’ve wanted to make a worsted weight version. So here it is! It’s just as easy (and quick!) to make but lighter weight. Scroll down for the free pattern! :)
Finished Size: Around edge = 19 inches. From edge to center of top = 10 inches. Measurements were taken while laying flat, unstretched. It’s super stretchy!
Difficulty level: Advanced beginner/Intermediate

This pattern is worked in joined rounds. Join at the end of each round, where the pattern says to. Ch 4′s at the beginning of rounds will always count as 1 dc + 1 ch. Ch 1′s at the beginning of rounds 20-22 will count as 1 sc. Be sure to check your gauge after rnd 4.
Gauge: To check gauge, work rnds 1-4. Resulting circle should measure 5 inches across. Refer to the picture below for another way to check gauge. 1 dc + 1 ch x2 should = just under an inch.
rnd 1: ch 4 (counts as 1 dc + 1 ch now and throughout). 1 dc in 4th ch from hook. ch 1. In same ch sp as before: [1 dc, ch 1] 8 times. sl st to join. (10 dc)
rnd 2: ch 4. 1 dc in same sp. ch 1. [1 dc, ch 1 twice in next dc] rep around. sl st to join. (20 dc)
rnd 3: ch 4. 1 dc, ch 1 twice in next dc. [1 dc, ch 1 in next dc. 1 dc, ch 1 twice in next dc.] rep around. sl st to join. (30 dc)
rnd 4: ch 4. 1 dc, ch 1 in ea of the next 2 dc. [1 dc, ch 1 in ea of the next 2 dc.1 dc, ch 1 twice in next dc.] rep around. sl st to join. (40 dc)
rnds 5-19 (15 rnds): ch 4. [1 dc, ch 1 in next dc] rep around. sl st to join. (40 dc)
rnd 20: ch 1 (counts as 1 sc). 1 sc in next ch sp. [1 sc in next dc. 1 sc in next ch sp.] rep around. sl st to join. (80 sc)
