Additional Notes:
-A special thank you to Crochet Geek for kindly giving me permission to share their video instruction for the top part of this hat.
-To work this pattern you must be familiar with the Diamond Stitch, the Shell Stitch, and the Reverse Single Crochet, or Crab Stitch. Click on the links to view some excellent tutorials from Moogly, and Hopeful Honey on how to work these stitches. I’ve also included a few extra tips on the Diamond stitch that may be helpful, at the end of this post. You must also be familiar with working in the 3rd loop of an hdc stitch.
-Finished hat should measure, unstretched, about 8.5” tall and 10.5” wide (excluding ear flaps), and should fit a teen or adult.
-Make sure you crochet with very loose tension to achieve this fit!
