Crown Instructions

Create a Magic Loop and sc 6 into said loop (6 sts)

Row 3: *2 sc, 2 sc in next stitch; repeat from * around (24 sts)

Row 11: *10 sc, 2 sc in next stitch; repeat from * around (72 sts)

Row 12: *11 sc, 2 sc in next stitch; repeat from * around (78 sts) – Stop here for the adult small and go to the hat instructions below

Hat Instructions

At this point you do not need to mark the beginning of the rounds; continue to sc in the blo for approximately 4″ (4.25″). This measurement is from the outer edge of the crown. Once you have reached the measurement listed above you will start the brim of the hat. Continue in the round with a ss in the blo for approximately an inch. Make sure you do not slip stitch tightly. It may help to go up a hook size or two. Fasten off and weave in the ends!

Note: Please let me know if you have any feedback! Also, this pattern may be used for whatever purpose you would like to use it. If you happen to sell something using this pattern, please put a link to my blog.

      Hi, Jane.

      The hat fits a 21″ head. I believe this to be a woman’s small or a teen size. It is easy to up-size by using a larger hook or doing another row or two of sc increases. For example: row 11 says to do *10 sc, 2 sc in next stitch; repeat from * around for 72 stitches. If you would like to make a larger hat simply continue to do an increase of 6 stitches for each row. (*11 sc, 2 sc in next stitch; repeat from * around for 78 stitches and so on)

      Let me know if you have any other questions on the sizing. :)

    Your pattern says to sc in the back loops, that is incorrect. You need to sc in the front loops to make the pattern look like it does. Thank You for the pattern I really enjoy it. Please post more patterns for us to enjoy.

    Just made the hat. Works up fast. But you have 2 rows numbered row 10 and also worked in rounds not rows.

    I don’t understand how to finish it since there are not closed loops, could you clarify more please? I loved the design and congratulations for your new baby!
