To adjust the circumference to fit different sizes, Rnd 1 of the hat must be a multiple of 3 sts; if your brim number is a number that is not divisible by 3, you will need to work one or more decreases to arrive at an appropriate stitch total.
The hat height can also be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the number of rounds worked in the pattern.
- The hat begins with the ribbing worked in rows sideways; then continued in rounds from the bottom to the top.
- The top of the hat is worked in joined rnds, turning at the end of each rnd and working in the opposite direction, this creates a neater seam and texture of the pattern.
- If you crochet loosely, you may find going down a hook size to create the brim useful.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across, turn. (9 sts)
Rows 2–70: Ch 1 (does not count as st throughout), sc blo in each st across, turn.
Fold the piece in half, hold Row 1 edge above the last row edge. Ch 1 and sl st the short sides together inserting the hook through the back loops of the stitches on both sides to create a circular band. Turn the piece inside out, so that the seam will be hidden on the wrong side.
You may find it helpful to add a stitch marker in the first stitch of the rnd.
Rnd 1 (RS): Ch 1, sc in the same place as the ch 1, sc in each row-end around to last 2 rows, dc2tog over the next 2 row-ends, sl st in the top of the beg sc to join. (69 sts)
Rnd 2 (RS): Ch 1 (does not count as st throughout), (sc, 2 dc) in same sc as join, sk next 2 dc, [ (sc, 2 dc) in next sc, sk next 2 dc] around, sl st in top of the beg sc to join, turn.
Rnd 3: Sl st to work in the first sc of the previous rnd (you will need to place your hook backwards slightly), ch1, [ (1sc, 2dc) in the same st, miss 2sts ] repeat from [ … ] around, sl st to the top of the beginning sc to join, turn
Rnds 4 – 16: Repeat Rnd 3
Fasten off but leave a long yarn tail for sewing the top together
See supporting images.
- Turn hat inside out; place hat down flat with ribbing seam in the center; sew together the seam center st with the st on the opposite side
- Bring both of the other sides together at the center and sew them together to create four sections
- Repeat the previous step until you have eight sections; sew together the sides of each section to close the top of the hat. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Leave plain or attach a pom-pom to the top of the hat for extra detail.
