• This beanie is worked flat (back and forth in rows) as a rectangle from corner to corner. It is then stitched around the length and cinched to form the top of the hat and then seamed up the width of the work to form a hat.
• Beginning CHs do not count as stitches.
• Increase rows will have an increase stitch near the beginning and end of the row to build the height of the work. This section will take the shape of a triangle. Repeat rows will have an increase stitch near one end and a decrease stitch near the other end to build length while maintaining a diagonal edge. Decrease rows will have a decrease stitch near the beginning and end of the row. This section will fill in the remaining triangle portion of the work to form a finished rectangle.
• The finished rectangle will seem like more of a parallelogram when finished. This shape is due to the nature of the stitch. Working in BLO creates an elastic ribbing so this elasticity pulls on the fabric. Stretching the rectangle or blocking before seaming will remedy this problem.
• This pattern includes directions for making a brimmed or brimless version as well as a solid color or color-blocked version.
• Sizes are indicated by parenthesis ( ) respectively Newborn, Baby, Child, Teen/Adult with the brimmed option in brackets .
• When working the color-blocked version, pull the new color through as you complete the stitch prior to the color change. Keep all tails on one side of the work.
