Like the first version, I started the band with 72 rows instead of 80.

Added a SC row after completing the band to bring in some green.


Finished the main part of the hat, but found it was too large, so frogging back to band and redoing with size H hook.

11/20/2017 Pt. 2


So, as I planned back when I made the first hat, I went with 4 sections before decreasing. I used an H hook for most of it until the last 2 rows.

The hat is still a little too large for my tiny head, but I’ll just deal with it.


Completed 72 rows for band.

After joining band, did 1 row of single crochet in contrast color.

Did repeat section 4 times before decreasing. (36 stitches at end)

After decreasing, starting with HDC round and using G hook: HDC x 4, DEC around (30 stitches)

Final row: HDC x 3, DEC around (24 stitches)

Bow: Used G hook.


Band is too wide. Next time use only 5 stitches in each row.

Maybe only repeat cable section 3 times and use I hook as directed. Use decrease rows as above.
