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.

As you’ll see below, the Airy Vee Slouch uses the traditional V-stitch and a tall V-Stitch, so lots of double crochet, treble crochet, and chains. It’s an easy to remember pattern after the increases have been made.

What are you waiting for?

    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.
