Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 14 sts in double crochet to crochet a hat that measures approximately 21 (24) inch in circumference. Pattern is written for size Small/Medium with changes for size Large in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. Save time, check your gauge. If the hook listed under supplies does not work, use the size that allows you to obtain the required gauge. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Special Technique: Adjustable-ring = Wrap yarn into a ring, ensuring that the tail falls behind the working yarn. Grip ring and tail between middle finger and thumb. Insert hook through center of ring, yarn over (with working yarn) and draw up a loop. Work stitches of first round in the ring. After the first round of stitches is worked, pull gently on tail to tighten ring
