Introduction
Welcome to the pattern! I strive for easy patterns aimed at the advanced beginner. As long as youve got a basic knowledge of common techniques, you should find this pattern workable.

Copyright Stuff
If you make the hat, you can sell the hat. Id appreciate credit if anyone asks where you came up with it. You cannot sell altered versions of the written pattern. The hat is yours do with as you wish, but the written pattern remains my intellectual property. Or as Creative Commons calls it: Attribution-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/3.0/deed.en_US).

Yarn:
Cascades Fixation, 1 skein (50 grams/100 yards)
Fiber: 98.3% cotton/1.7% elastic
Color: 5806

Techniques:
Chain Stitch (ch)
slip stitch (ss)
Double crochet (dc)
Half-double crochet (hdc)
Back loop only single crochet (blo sc)
Joining
Working in the round

Technique Notes:
  • All chain 3s created for dc rounds are considered the first dc for that round and count as a stitch.
  • When joining dc rounds, you will join in the top loop of the original chain 3.

Yarn Notes:
  • Fixation is a yarn with a lot of stretch. Make certain to work with the yarn loose and not stretched to get the desired look and feel for the finished hat. When hat is completed, there should be some stretch as you put it on.
  • It is not recommended that you try to substitute a non-stretchy yarn, as the stretch is part of the fit. In the good news category, the yarn is only $5 a skein



Pattern:
Ch 5, join with a ss to form a ring. Ch 3. Ch 3 counts as first dc in this and every round.

Round 1: dc 9 stitches into center of ring. Join last dc to first ch 3 with a ss. Ch 3, turn. (10 dc counting original ch 3)

Round 2: dc in same stitch as ch 3. 2 dc in every dc around (20 dc counting original ch 3). Join with a ss, ch 3, turn.
