Slouch, slouch, everywhere! It's no mystery why slouchy hats are in style, with their effortless, artistic urbanity. With this collection of slouchy beanie knitting patterns, you, too, will have the power to knit the perfect slouch.
Before you get started on your new favorite hat, it's important to learn the best yarn for slouchy beanie knitting patterns. When it comes to slouchy hats, not all yarn is created equal. Especially for beginner knitters, it's important to work with a yarn with a high wool content.
A superwash yarn will have a nice amount of stretch and will hold its shape very well. A 100% wool yarn will also work well due to the ability to stretch without stretching too much and losing shape (unlike a 100% alpaca yarn). Wool yarn also does not become too rigid like most plan based fibers, but keep in mind that caring for 100% wool yarn is different from other fibers.
When in doubt, it's best to use the yarn indicated on the pattern you're using to ensure your slouchy beanie will come out looking its best. However, if you do need to substitute the yarn or you're not working off of a specific pattern, a yarn with a high wool content is most likely your best bet.
Now that you know what kind of yarn to use for your slouchy beanie knitting patterns, it's time to pick out your favorite type! Take a look at the list below to learn how to knit a slouchy beanie perfect for your unique style.
