Hat

Ripple band:

Row 1: With MC, ch 18, sc in 2nd ch from hk, sc in next 2 ch, sk next 2 ch, sc in ea of next 3 ch, 3 sc in next ch, sc in ea of next 3 ch, sk 2 ch, sc in ea of next 3 ch, turn (15 sc)

Row 2 (Note: work this and all subsequent rows on band in back loop only): Ch 1, work 2 sc in BLO of first sc, sc in BLO of next sc, sk next 2 sc, sc in BLO of next 3 sc, 3 sc in BLO of next sc, sc in BLO of next 3 sc, sk next 2 sc, sc in BLO of next sc, 2 sc in BLO of last sc, turn (15 sc)

Rep Row 2 until band measures 20” (22”) from beg.  At end of last row, do not cut yarn, turn.

Edging (Note: work edging stitches along sides of band loosely to allow for stretch when hat is worn):

Ch 1, work 14 sc along each narrow end of piece and 54 (72) sc along each long edge of piece, join with sl st.

Fold piece in half with right sides together. Seam together the 14 sts on each narrow end of band by working sl st through both loops of ea st and through both thicknesses. Fasten off MC.

 

Turn piece right side out.

Hat crown (Note: Crown of hat is worked in spiral single crochet. Do not join or turn at end of each round but continue in same direction throughout. Use a removable stitch marker or contrast thread yarn marker to keep track of beginning of rounds.

With right side of tube facing, join CC to one edge of band at seamline. Ch 1, work 54 (72) sc evenly around.  Do not join or turn but begin working in spiral sc (see Note above).  Place removable marker or contrast yarn marker and carry it up each round as you work.

Work in spiral sc until crown section (CC section) measures 2” from edge of ripple band.

Begin crown decreases:

Note: Do not join or turn at end of each round but continue in same direction.
