Chunky slouchy men’s hat knitting pattern:

Using the long tail method, cast on 62 stitches. For the main hat pattern, the number of stitches needs to be multiple of 7. Therefore, after the ribbing, add one more stitch to reach a total of 63 stitches. For the smaller size, cast on 56 stitches, which is already a multiple of 7. Place marker and join to knit in the round.

Rounds 1,3,5,7,9,11: [k1, p1] – repeat around.

Rounds 2,4,6,8,10: [k1, p1b] – repeat till the end of the round.

Knit an odd number of rounds for the ribbing until it measures 5 cm.

Round 1: [k4, p1, k1, p1] – repeat around. In this round, we will add 1 stitch. Use any method you are familiar with. I knitted one below from the 1st stitch.

Round 2: [k4, p1b, k1, p1b] – repeat around.

Round 3: [k4, p1, k1, p1] – repeat around.

Continue repeating Rounds 1-6 until the hat measures 21 cm in length. I repeated the pattern for a total of 6 repetitions.
