- Hat is crocheted, but produces a fabric that looks knitted.
- Hat is worked in short rows, which create wedge-shaped sections. A short row is a row worked over a portion of the stitches in the previous row, leaving the remaining stitches unworked.
- Each right side row is worked from the top of the hat down. Each wrong side row is worked from the lower edge of the hat upwards.
- Take care to work into the very first stitch (or chain) of each row, unless otherwise instructed.
