Materials Needed:
5.5mm (I) hook, or hook needed to obtain gauge
150-175 yards Red Heart Super Saver in Aran
yarn needle
Flower hair clip (Optional)

Stitches Used:
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
FPhdc = front post half double crochet
BPhdc = back post half double crochet

Additional Terms:
hdc in the 3rd loop: work all stitches for the round in the 3rd loop of the hdc from previous round. Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.

14 stitches in 4”

Adult: 10” wide by 10 1/2” tall

Additional Notes:
-It is possible to make this hat smaller or larger by omitting or adding repeats of rows 5-8. When it comes to adding the band, you may also adjust it smaller or larger, but be sure you sc around the edge in multiples of 4.
-If you want to make a toddler size, try a starting chain of 25, and work 44 stitches around for the band.
-It may be necessary to adjust your hook to get this to fit properly. Each row 5-8 repeat should add about 2 more inches to your hat.
