Notes
• Read all instructions before beginning.
• This hat is worked in rounds.
• The ch1 or ch2 does NOT count as a stitch at the beginning of each round.
• Always join to the 1st stitch of the round (not the ch1/ch2) and work the
1st stitch of the next round in the same stitch you joined into.
• You may replace the ch3 at the beginning with a magic ring if you’d like (do
NOT count skipped chs as a stitch).

  • I love to use THIS technique for changing color. It make perfect seamless stripes!
