Flat slouchy hat knitting pattern:

Cast on 47 stitches.

Row 1: keep the working yarn in front and slip the first stitch as to knit, bring the working yarn back and knit all stitches across, turn.

Row 2 (short row): sl 1, knit all stitches until last 3 sts, bring the yarn to the front, slip next stitch purlwise onto the right needle, bring the yarn to the back and return the slip stitch to the left needle, turn.

Row 3: bring the yarn to the back and knit all sts, turn.

Row 6 (short row): sl 1, knit all stitches until last 7 sts, bring the yarn to the front, slip next stitch purlwise onto the right needle, bring the yarn to the back and return the slip stitch to the left needle, turn.

Row 7: bring the yarn to the back and knit all sts, turn.

Row 8: sl 1, knit all stitches until last stitch, bring the yarn to the front, slip next stitch purlwise onto the right needle, turn.

Row 9: keep the working yarn in front and slip the first stitch as to purl, bring the working yarn back and knit all stitches across, turn.

Repeat Rows 2-9 until hat reaches desired width. When I measured the width of my hat it was about 42 cm.

Now it is time to seam the hat.

Cut the yarn leaving a tail that is 3 times the height of the hat. Line two edges of the hat with right side facing you. Seam the hat by using horizontal invisible method or any other method you know. Check video tutorial for more instructions.

When you reach the top of the hat, pull two tails to close top, make a knot and weave in ends.
