Notes

  • Read all instructions before beginning.

  • This hat is worked in the rounds from the bottom up. You will sew up the top to finish.

  • The ch 1/ch 2 at the beginning of each round will NOT count as a st.

  • Be sure to pay careful attention to the turns.

  • You will join each round with a ss to the top of the first st of each round.

  • For stitch counts 1 shell = [1 sc, ch 2, 3(2 or 1) dcs]

  • When the instructions say to work into the side of the sc, insert your hook into the left (right if you’re a lefty) side 2 bars of the sc. I have provided a video of this below

Instructions
