I’m really excited to share these awesome versions of my slouchy beanie pattern today!

I just love how the hats turned out, and even moreso that these wonderful makers just loved their finished creations.

This hat is quite different to my other designs thus far, but I really do love the chunky texture, and that pompom is even more gorgeous in real life… trust me!

Having tried out lots of pompom making methods in the past, I have to tell you that this pompom is pretty perfect. Pompom making really is an art, you know!??!

Well, I didn’t want you to struggle, so I’ve included the exact method I used to make this one within the pattern.

Happy pompom making!! 🙂

I named my slouchy 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 give you!

I hope you love it, too, here are my testers photos…

Denise’s Slouchy Beanie

Denise is an absolute gem to work with, and she simply has to take the prize for the fastest crocheter I know!

Check her out on Instagram, her work is beautiful.

Here’s what she said about WeeYarn’s slouchy beanie pattern:

I feel so lucky to have been offered to test crochet this pattern.

Melanie is a fantastic designer, her pattern is clear and easy to follow as well as beautifully laid out.

I didn’t think I was a slouchy beanie kind of girl, but I so am, and I love, love, LOVE this hat!!

Look at this sweet face modeling her mum’s slouchy beanie. Isn’t she totally adorable?

Kirsten’s slouchy beanie is super gorgeous, too, and I have to admit I do love how wonderfully squishy that pompom looks.

I’m really delighted with each of my testers versions of The Ballintoy, and I think their photos are awesome, because they really show the lovely chunky texture of the hat.
