Airy Vee Slouch: Free Crochet Pattern

Airy Vee Slouch Crochet Pattern

Hi All! I’m just dropping in with the Airy Vee Slouch crochet pattern, a simple hat that is great for stash-busting.

I made this hat to match a Draped in Diamonds Vest that was a commissioned project. It’s quick to make in an evening, so grab several colors to make as gifts for the upcoming holidays.

The Airy Vee Slouch uses the traditional V-stitch and a tall V-Stitch, so lots of double crochet, treble crochet, and chains.

What are you waiting for?

Get started! 😃

    1. Hi Anna.
      Thank you for the question. Yes, this man can be made for a hat. The vest has a quite a bit of drape that it not likely preferred by men.
