This pattern is available for free.

The first part of this pattern can be found on Crochet Geek’s Website, or YouTube channel. Please note that this is an intermediate/advanced pattern. Once you get done with round 10, you’ll come back here for the ending. The pattern calls for a 4mm (G) hook, but many people have written to tell me they ended up with a child size beanie using this hook, so please, feel free to begin with a 5mm (H) hook, or 6 mm (J) hook if needed. I have very loose tension, and have included gauge instructions to help you out. Please do a test swatch first! You’ll thank me later. ;)

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. You must also be familiar with working in the 3rd loop of an hdc stitch.
-tc2tog counts as a stitch. Don’t forget to skip that spot in your round when making the stitch
-Gauge is very important. You will want to do a gauge swatch before starting this project!
