Hat Instructions

At this point you do not need to mark the beginning of the rounds; continue to sc in the blo for approximately 2 3/4″ (3 1/4″, 3 1/2″, 4″, 4 1/4″). This measurement is from the outer edge of the crown. Once you have reached the measurment listed above you will start the brim of the hat. Continue in the round with a ss in the blo for approximately half an inch. Make sure you do not slip stitch tightly. (You don’t want the hat to be too tight on baby’s head!) It may help to go up a hook size or two. Fasten off and weave in the ends!
