Pattern Notes

This hat is worked in the round from the bottom up.

On rows where there are CC Puff Stitches, carry both colors along throughout the entire round. When finishing the hdc before a Puff Stitch, use MC, not CC.

Always be sure to work a PS centered between the PS from 3 rounds below. The way crochet spirals, PS on successive rounds should naturally fall between PS from previous rows. But adjust stitches if necessary to make PS positioned correctly.
