Free Crochet Pattern: Gail Slouch Beanie

By Amy – October 1st, 2018 2 Comments

Gail Slouch Beanie at Crochet Spot

It is officially Autumn and I am just itching to start crocheting hats and scarves! Some of my favorite hats to crochet are slouch beanies because they fit loosely on the head, and I can’t stand a hat that smooshes my hair down.

With the Gail Slouch Beanie, the fit is just right. (And if you want a different size than suggested, look on down for instructions on how to adjust the size of your beanie). First you will crochet the ribbing in rows and then turn the hat to work the body, which is made of alternating puff stitches. Though the hat may look complicated, it really is quite simple and crochets with ease.

Give the Gail Slouch Beanie a try and let me know what you think!

Most Used Crochet Hook Size

By Rachel Choi – September 24th, 2018 3 Comments

The crochet hook size you use greatly depends on what you are crocheting and the weight of yarn you crochet with. If you’re crocheting with thread, you’re likely to use a very small crochet hook. If you’re crocheting with super bulky weight yarn, you’re likely to crochet with a large crochet hook.

Like most beginners, when I first started crocheting I wasn’t sure what size crochet hook to buy. I ended up purchasing a small set with a variety of crochet hooks, which I still use today. Now, as a more experienced crocheter, I found my most used crochet hook size is an I (5.50 mm) crochet hook. I use a lot of medium/worsted weight yarn and make a variety of items such as hats, scarves, blankets, home decor, etc. Of course there are plenty of other crochet hook sizes that I use, so a set with different sizes is what I always recommend to others, but if there is one crochet hook that I would get duplicates of it’s the I (5.50 mm) crochet hook.

What is your most used crochet hook size? What type of yarn do you typically crochet with, and what do you often make? Share your experience below and see what others are saying!
