I originally started making this pattern when I didn’t have access to my circular needles. It was fast and fun.

Flat Slouchy Hat (SuperBulky Yarn)
Slouchy hat knitted flat and sewn together, suitable for beginning knitter
Yarn Used: Super Bulky Lion Brand Hometown USA, I used 1 and a third skeins which is about 110-120 yds of  super bulky yarn
Gauge: 13 stitches x 9 rows, 4x4 inches
Needles: US 13 or size to get gauge
Cast On: 42 Stitches
Row 1: K1, P1, repeat to end
Row 2: Repeat row 1 until, your ribbing is as long as you desire, mine is approx. 5 inches long.
Row1: (Knit 3, Inc 1)* repeat until end of row (total 55 stitches) (see link here, for all types of increase examples and videos)  (for beginning knitters it may be easiest to increase by using the M1 or make 1 see link
Row 2: Purl all
Row 3: Knit all
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until it is approx 5 inches long, remember the body will be longer than this, we still have to do our decreases.
End with a wrong side row, (purl row)
Decrease rows:
row 1: Knit 3, K2tog* repeat until end,( K2tog video here)
row 2: and all even rows, Purl
row 3: Knit 2, K2tog* repeat until end.
row 5: Knit 1, K2tog* repeat until end
row 7: K2tog* repeat until end (last row)
Now cut a long tail of yarn, using a yarn needle, draw up through your loops on your needle, remove from needle, and draw up tightly.
Now stitch your hat down the side using one of these techniques.
