The Moroccan Midnight Slouch Hat is the perfect accompaniment to the Moroccan Midnight Cowl – but it stands alone beautifully too. And just like the cowl it’s fantastic, fun, and sparkly, with a gorgeous stained glass effect!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this addition to the Moroccan Tile series! Is there another pattern you’d like to see that uses this stitch? Please let me know! And thanks for visiting!
I just love this stitch! the hat and scarf are just gorgeous………I would love to see a pair of fingerless gloves in the same 🙂 Many, many thanks!
Fingerless gloves would be brilliant!!!!!!
Ooo, I like that idea! 😀 Thank you!
How do make this pattern in large adult?
When two numbers are given, like 30(40), you follow the numbers within the parentheses. 🙂
My favorite part of this pattern is not the pattern but all the tutorials! I am easily making this hat right now because of all the work you did on the tutorials! Cannot wait to see my finished product…so far, so good! Thank you!
😀 Thank you Debbie, I’m so glad they helped!
Thank you soo much for posting this pattern. I am IN LOVE with the cowl and can’t wait to make a matching hat. Plus, it’s a slouchy hat. That’s even better. I LOVE YOU SITE AND ALL THE PATTERNS YOU SHARE.
THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.
😀 Thanks so much Jen!
I like the idea of fingerless gloves too! I have not finished the cowl yet, but was there enough of the Boutique Midnight yarn left that you were able to make the hat with the same skein, or did you have to buy another skein?
Alas, both items take over half a skein – 187 yds of the Midnight total for the set, and each skein is only 153 yds. I am hoping to maybe squeeze the fingerless gloves out of the leftovers though – I’ll have to see how it goes!
I Love it!!! I was just telling my daughter, I hope she designs a matching hat!!! I already started mine.
😀 Thanks so much Sara!
Thanks so much for all your patterns, you motivate me with your creativeness and colour. Thanks again for all the time and effort you put in to share with us. Truly appreciated.
Thank you so much Julie!
This is a very nice pattern, Tamara, thanks for the post! I have never crocheted a hat before as I did not really need one but seeing this hat you’ve made, I really want to try it! If I find the yarn for it I will definitely be sharing this pattern to others 🙂 Keep up the good work!
Hi tamara! I am Disou and I have been following you for quite some time on Pinterest! And recently I have noticed that something happened to the pins you put on the community boards! They appear on the board itself but not on your followers’ page. Therefore nobody sees them unless they actually open the community board where the pin appears…
I have been having this problem for more than a month now. I have contacted the pinterest team for help many times but am still being ignored (sigh…) Maybe you know how to eliminate this bug…
Thank you so much for all your sharing and the wonderful posts that you make available for all of us! I share most of your pins on my board and they are really appreciated! 🙂
Hi Disou! I recognize your name from Pinterest! 😀 I’m so bummed to hear this. Oddly enough, I have the same problem with a community board someone else owns – I never see the pins on it unless I open it. I’ve gone through the settings on the Moogly Community board and there doesn’t seem to be anything I can do about it. 🙁 I’ll try contacting Pinterest as well. Thanks for letting me know!
I saw, and made, this hat yesterday. 🙂 I love it!!!! I got a cute new haircut and wanted a cute new hat to go with it so this showed up in my fb newsfeed at the perfect time. Thank you!!
Awesome! 😀 I’m so glad to hear it Anna!
Love this hat,and would like to make thw cowl too. Could you post a link to the cowl pattern? I also like the fingerless gloves idea.
Thank you! Sorry I forgot to link it. Here it is: https://www.mooglyblog.com/moroccan-midnight-cowl/
And you can always find any pattern on the blog by going to the Free Patterns page using the menu at the top of the page! 🙂
I just finished both this and the cowl. They were supposed to be a gift… but I’m going to make another set and keep this one for myself. Its so pretty. It looks like stained glass.
😀 Best kind of review! Thank you!
Hi Tamara, I have a couple of questions on the ending rounds.
Rnd 31 Do you enclose the previous round with both the v stitches and the dc’s?
Rnd 33. Do you single crochet in the chain spaces also or just the actual stitches? How many sc’s for this round?
Can you explain how you weave the tail? Do you weave thru each stitch around or kind of side to side?
Thanks for your help. 🙂
Rnd 31 – yes, enclose the previous rounds, just as you would have if you weren’t decreasing!
Rnd 33 – sc in the ch sps – sorry, that could have been clearer, I’ll edit that. You should have 11 or 12 sc sts in this round, depending on which size you’re making.
Weaving the tail is essentially going up through one stitch, up through the next, down through the next etc, as if you were adding a drawstring. Then pull it tight to close up the hole! 🙂 I hope that’s clear!
Yes it does very much. Thank you for your time. I posted a couple of pics in my Ravelry project tab. ( Katsgrace) I think I am doing something wrong on the last few rounds. The last color round looks like a flower. Lol. Kinda cool looking, but I don’t think it is right by looking at other pics.
Hm, it does look cool! But I’m not sure what’s happening either! It’s like a row of Color A is missing?
Nice complexion.. hahah
The work is also actually too clear!
Thank you so much for the unique, beautiful patterns! I just finished the cowl, and want to make the hat and fingerless gloves.
I would love to make a tote bag in the same design!
Hi Kay! Change up the colors to match the rest and there’s a pattern all ready for you! https://www.mooglyblog.com/moroccan-market-tote/ 😀
I’m a little confused. I didn’t do the FDC I just chained the 68 you put in the pattern and it doesn’t look like it will even be big enough to fit my 1 year olds head, much less mine. Did I do something wrong? I don’t want to continue making this if it isn’t going to fit or be proportionate. Any ideas of why this is happening?
Hi Alicia! A lot depends on your choice of yarn and tension. If it’s coming out very small, switching to a larger hook will help!
sara alaa omar
amazing tuturial 🙂
I’ll try it ♥
I found this pattern while looking for a crocheted slouchy hat for my tweener niece , at the behest of my sister. That being said, I must say this pattern is absolutely gorgeous! I believe it would make a beautiful blanket. I have always hated crocheting, going so far as to convert patterns into knitting, but this beauty has got me rethinking my aversion to crocheting and I thank you for that. 🙂
Thank you Tammy! There’s a Moroccan Tile Afghan pattern here on Moogly if you decide to give it a try! 🙂
Love the colors and pattern! And you’re beautiful 🙂
That’s my 12 year old, and thank you! 😀
Gorgeous beanie, I love this stitch so I think I’l crochet the set with the fingerless gloves and not to give to anybody, friend or relative 😉 , for me-myself. If someone wants them will have to wait!!! Agai and again, thank you so much for sharing… Now I’m going to Ravelry to put the in my queue and favorites! 🙂
Sorry for the mistakes!!!
thank you so much to share this beautiful hat with us:*
😀 Thank you Shoko!
Wow, I just love this pattern and your Moroccan Fingerless Gloves too! I just finished making the gloves and the hat and they were an absolute “blast” to make.
I also put up a ravelry project page linking back to your page on this hat on ravelry.
Thanks for posting this wonderful pattern. I have had a lot of people ask me where I found the pattern and I have given them your weblink at Moogly.
Thanks again! 🙂 🙂
😀 Thank you so much Lee Ann!
Love this hat! My son wanted me to make it for him but he doesn’t want it to be a slouchy hat, any ideas how to decrease it slowly to make it a regular hat?
Thank you Jane! To make it a beanie, just drop a few of the repeats between rounds 9 and 30 🙂
Another piece of outstanding work!! I love your patterns, they are easy to understand and the results are amazing. I received so many compliments wearing them. Please keep them coming. Cheers!
Thank you so much Pearl! 😀
Hello Tamara, Thank You so much for this gorgeous pattern. The last round, Is the SC in the chain space of color B ? I did that and right now it does not look right. Wanted to be sure before I weave it
. Round 33: Replace hook in active loop of Color A, ch 1, sc in each ch sp around. Join with sl st to first sc. (11 (12) sc) Break Color A yarn leaving a long tail. Use tail to weave through the sts of the last row and gather tightly closed. Weave in ends. https://scontent-lga3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/12036365_10207973057949857_8361321815932099067_n.jpg?oh=b3a58b6fdfe7fcc8b136b3443e06dde5&oe=56C878EE
Thank you Mary! It should be in the ch-sp, but it if you have another spot you prefer, then put it there! 🙂 It won’t change much of anything at this point, and it’s your project.
wondering if there is a video for decreasing for the morocccan tile hat… im confused 🙂
I’m sorry Cathy, I’m afraid not. If you tell me what’s confusing you, maybe I can help?
Hello Tamara, I am enjoying making the slouch hat. I have watched your great tutorial on the subject and have learned a lot from it. I learn mostly via visual instructions. Have searched for other video tutorials with no luck. Can you create a tutorial on how to decrease in pattern please?
Hi Athleen! Thank you! I’ll add it to the list! 🙂
On round one you don’t say to join the chain/foundation chains before starting the double crochets, If followed exactly this leaves a gap that had to be seen together
Yes, there is a video tutorial linked in the bullet points that explains how to do this. 🙂
Hi Tamara, I love this pattern! Unfortunately when I went to make my hat I didn’t have enough yarn so I turned it into a messy bun hat instead. I’ve added a post with the messy bun pattern to my website here: http://gorgeouscrafts.co.uk/moroccan-messy-bun-hat-pattern/ I hope you like it.
It’s fantastic Heidi, thank you! I added a link to the post above in case others want to make it too! 🙂 Thank you for sharing it so well!
