Interweave SKU: EP2161
Worked in a thick yarn in one piece from the center to the reverse-single crochet edging, this hat will be done in no time. The increases on the top are made by working in the front loop and back loop of the same stitch. In the body of the hat, double crochets worked alternately in front loop only and back loop only make a stretchy fabric to fit a variety of heads. (Interweave)
