About the Pattern

‘The Ballintoy’ is a slouchy crochet hat that is wonderfully cozy, has just the right combo of structure and slouch, and is topped off with a gorgeous, squishy pompom, making it the hat of dreams!

I have named my pompom hat ‘The Ballintoy,’ after the picturesque village of Ballintoy near my place of birth, in Northern Ireland. It is famous for its remarkable scenery and beautifully situated fishing harbor. Such an exposed location often requires a warm hat, which is precisely what this pattern will produce.

This hat is sized for women (head circumference 22-23 inches), and you will need bulky weight yarn to complete the project.The pattern is suitable for beginners, with a basic crocheting knowledge, and is written in standard US terms. I have included detailed step-by-step instructions, but I also offer free support via email, should you need help with any aspect of the making process. If you have any questions whatsoever, do feel free to contact me on weeyarnstudio@gmail.com.

I strive to provide patterns that are technically correct and easy to follow, and each of my patterns have been tested for errors and pattern clarity, as well as for fit and comfort. My patterns are designed for those new to crochet, as well as for more seasoned crafters.

Also, I’d love to see your slouchy crochet hat, so tag me using #WeeYarnDIY on social media and spread the handmade goodness!
