Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 13 sc + 15 rnds (4 inch) to crochet a hat that measures Baby (Child, Teen/Adult). This translates approximately to 16 (17, 19) inch in Finished Circumference and about 14 (16, 19) inch in Finished Height. Save time, check your gauge. If the hook or needle listed under supplies does not work, use the size that allows you to obtain the required gauge. Pattern is written for smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning. Download the template for abbreviations and stitches not explained elsewhere.
    Special Stitch:
    sc2tog = Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook - 1 st decreased.
    Notes:
    Hat is worked in continuous rounds; do not join and do not turn at beg of rnds.
    Hat is worked from tip downwards. Add additional rnds or additional increases to make a larger hat.
