celebs in slouchy hats

Hats are a more important fashion accessory than ever and the slouchy hat is the most popular style of all.  The slouchy hat is a beanie with an extra flap that hangs down in the back.  Some of the celebrities who have been photographed wearing this style include Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Mary-Kate Olsen.  It’s even popular with men, including Jake Gyllenhaal (who has been spotted in the Lion Brand Yarn Studio on 15th Street in New York City!)

For those of you who love to knit and crochet hats, the good news is that people are wearing them all year round, indoors and out. You can knit or crochet a slouchy hat with a seasonally appropriate yarn like Wool Ease® Thick & Quick® for winter or Cotton-Ease® for spring and summer.  Simply change up the colors and the patterns and you can have a new look every day.

Here are six of the most popular slouchy hats on our site to choose from.

    The embroidered hat – in Bonbon, Wool Ease .and Thick and Quick – is it knitted with all three yarns knitted together as a single strand? a size 11 needle seems very big for a single strand otherwise…

      Yvette, this knit had is made with one single strand, and then embroidered. Wool-Ease Thick &Quick is one of our bulky yarns so the needle size should suffice. Hope this helps.

        Petrina – thank you so much for the clarification! I didn’t realise they were all bulky yarns – I am in Australia – so not terribly familiar with all the US yarns.. do know some though..
