Gauge

13 stitches = 4”/10 cm

11 rows hdc = 4”/10 cm

For the written instructions the sizes will be written in the following format:

Small (medium, large)

Brim

(all sizes) starting with a slip knot, ch 11

row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, and in each ch across (10 st)

row 2: ch 1, turn. scblo in each st across (10)

Repeat row 2 until your brim measures 18” (20”, 22”), 48 cm (51 cm, 56 cm). Be sure not to stretch it while measuring.

sl st the edges of the brim together, and flip your brim so that the sl st seam is on the inside. Turn your work so you are working along the edge of the sc stitches you made.

Hat Body

Rnd 1: ch 2 (does not count as a stitch here and throughout pattern), dc even around the brim 60 (66, 72) stitches. Sl st to the first dc.

Rnd 2: ch 2, (3 fpdc, 3 bpdc) repeat around, sl st to the first fpdc

rnd 3: ch 2, 2 fpdc, 3 bpdc (3 fpdc, 3 bpdc) repeat around, fpdc in last st, sl st to the first fpdc

rnd 4: ch 2, fpdc, 3 bpdc (3 fpdc, 3 bpdc) repeat around, 2 fpdc in last 2 st, sl st to the first fpdc

repeat round 2-7 until your total hat height (including the brim) is 10” (11”, 12”), 25 cm (28 cm, 30 cm) Leave a long tail and sew up the top of the hat.

Pom-Pom (optional)

If you want to add a pom pom to your hat, you will have enough yarn left over for any size.

I make mine with my hand. I start by wrapping around the widest part of my hand 100-120 times.  To get the color mix, I pulled from both ends of my leftover yarn.  Gently pull the bundle of yarn off and tie the middle securely with a long string (we will use this string to attach to our hat as well). Carefully cut all the loops on both sides of the knot and sculpt your pom pom into whatever shape you like. Take your tapestry needle and attach it to the top of the hat.
