Pattern Notes:

  • Pattern is written in American English terms.
  • Pattern is worked in rounds.
  • Join not join at the end of a round unless otherwise stated. Instead use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch and move it up as your work progresses.
  • Weave in ends as needed.
  • All rounds are worked with the right side facing.
  • For the hat brim, when working through both thickness, at the front of the hat you will work as you would through the knit stitch, then pick up the corresponding stitch of the foundation row now on the inside of the hat, working through the top loops you would normally work through for an sc.
  • While working the graph, you may crochet over the non-working yarn, or carry it behind your work.
  • The knit stitch does not have a lot of stretch. If you would like a larger brim for your hat, increase your starting chain by multiples of 4. Then for each multiple of 4 you will increase the stitch count space of colour B between the Shamrocks by one. For example, with a chain of 64 the colour B between the shamrocks is three stitches. If you increase the starting chain to 68, the colour B between the Shamrocks will increase to 4 sts. The rest of the pattern will remain the same.
