    I so live this hat but i am a bit confused on the pattern. Do your pattern numbers represent rows or is it more a step by step instruction? I also looked at the diagram and have not been able to match the steps to the diagram…. Can u help me? Thank You, Isabel

      Lorene says

      Each row is a round. I’m not sure why you don’t think the diagram matches the written pattern. Did you read the pattern notes and special stitches explanations?

        • 4

          Lorene says

          The mc starts with 6 VPS which in simple terms is really 12 half puff stitches with chains in between. Do this… 1 half puff stitch (*Yarn over (will be referred to as yo from now on), insert hook in stitch (will be referred to as st from now on), yo, pull through st (you will have 3 loops on your hook). Yo, insert hook in same st, yo, pull through st (5 loops on hook). Yo and pull through all 5 loops) then chain 2. Then repeat another half puff stitch and chain 1. Then do that whole thing 5 more times for a total of 6 VPS.

          Hope that helps you out.

    Lorene, Thank you so much for the pattern! I have done so many different slouch hats and haven’t been pleased with them. The minute I saw this one I knew it was what I had been looking for. It worked up like a dream and will be my go-to-pattern for future slouch hats!

      Lorene says

      awesome, I’m so glad you liked it, I think it is my favorite too. I am working up a similar style with the same stitch but different look.

    Hi Lorene, can you do a video tutorial on the V Puff stitch? I just need a little help getting this one going.
    Thanks much.

    Krissy says

    Hi there! Pattern looks beautiful and I’m working on it now but I feel like I’m missing something. After round 6 I’m a little confused. Round 7 says “16 vps in every chain 2 sp? Then it goes to round 17? I’m probably missing something, any help u could give I’d appreciate it!

    I absolutely LOVE the look of this hat, but I’m still a bit of a beginner and have some trouble reading patterns… any plans to create a video tutorial? I can’t wait to try it out! Thanks!

      Lorene says

      I do have plans to make one but my filming has been put on hold for a little while (my little one doesn’t nap anymore and I need new lighting if I’m going to film at night after she goes to sleep… trying to set up a schedule so hubby can take her for the day so I can film but his work has been so busy)

    I am presently crocheting my fifth Chloe in two weeks. My fingers are numb; but my friends love this hat. I’ve done it in beige with green stripes, Purple with a black rose with a purple black button for the center, two blacks one with a pink rose the other with a red rose, currently working on blue…

    Britney says

    I love the hat! BUT…should it be ruffling (sp?) up at the join? I’ve taken it out three times because I can’t get it to come out right. I’ve been crocheting for 16 years, but this is the first hat I’ve attempted so I’m probably screwing something up lol

    • 22

      Lorene says

      send me a picture… it may have a slight wrinkle for the first few steps but not enough that I would say it ruffled… cre8tion@ymail.com

      It may not be the best hat to attempt for your first hat though. Maybe a basic beanie to start would be best?

      • 23

        Britney says

        I got it fixed! I had been doing the join wrong. My grandmother has been making this hat and she helped me haha she’s a lot better than I am at patterns like this :)

    Melanie says

    Love this hat and just finished it using cleakheaton nautical which looks thicker than what you have used. It was looking a bit big and I kept checking the gauge but must be doing something wrong. Can you explain how you check the gauge for this hat? Looks like I will be starting again with a smaller hook

    • 25

      Lorene says

      I’m not sure how to answer this… gauge is measured the same way for this hat as would be for any project. The first three rounds equal 4 ¼” from widest point to widest point. The hat is a slouch so it gets really large and then tapers back in. It does fit loose. If you like the slouch of the hat but the band is too big than you can just switch to a smaller hook for the band, or add a couple decreasing stitches. If the yarn you used is thicker than what I used than the overall product will be bigger. good luck

      • 26

        Melanie says

        Thanks. Just had a brainwave, do you mean the diameter? If that is the case I measured 5″ which makes more sense. The hat is for a friend and she is a lot smaller than me so might try the smaller hook.

  10. 29

    Mason says

    Love this hat, but I got a bit lost after the decrease. Am I supposed to decrease in both the ch2 spaces of the vps AND the gap in between? That is the only way I could get the sc’s to come out to 72.

    • 30

      Lorene says

      As far as I can remember I only had to decrease in the actual VPS so I can’t say why that differs for you, but if you ended up with 72 sts the way you ended up doing it than whatever works, lol. Perhaps a stitch was added somewhere along the way? I will have to work up the hat again to be absolutely positive though. thank you for letting me know.

  11. 31

    Mason says

    Thank you for your prompt response. My problem is that I have 24 ch2 spaces all throughout 7-16. Then the decrease is done in every ch2 space. (24 ch 1 spaces). So when I do the sc in all the ch 1 spaces I still get 24. So what am I doing wrong? The way to get 72 is by tripling 24. So I think I’m failing on the decrease

    • 32

      Lorene says

      Gotcha, on row 18 you are placing 1sc in every st. That would be 3sts PER vps decrease (1st, ch1, 1st) If you look at the diagram of the VPS decrease you will see that it has three stitches (one at the top of each “puff” and one ch1 in the center). So you are not only sc’ing in the ch1 space in the center but placing 1sc in each of the three sts of each vps decrease… going from 24 to 72.

      Hope this helps

    dawn says

    I’m a little confused on the pattern. The first row says 6 vps, but on your graph it shows a chain in between each vps. Each row shows a chain between each vps, but they’re not indicated anywhere in the written pattern. Am I missing something?

  13. 36


    I have tried to purchase the instructions with pics on the website for the Chloe Slouch V Puff Stitch Slouch Hat and it won’t let me pay for it. I put my email in and click on BUY NOW and nothing happens. I have tried this on two computers, a laptop and a desk top. Can you tell me if there is an issue on the website.

    Also do you sell this hat made? If so how much?

  14. 38

    Deborah scheuer says

    Just had a quick question. Im using hand spun Chilean wool for the hat and it’s quite delicate. I can’t pull the ring at the end of the magic ring to tighten it. It just breaks off. Could you recommend an amount of chains I could do and join to form the foundation of the project? Thanks

    Martha says

    Thanks for sharing this pattern, LOVED making this as much as I thought I would. Really neat pattern. Had a little trouble at first going from one to the next round, but read and re-read the instructions. Used Lion Brand, Vanna’s Choice dusty purple. Turned out very nice.
