Pattern Notes

• Ch1 at beg of row does not count as st. First sc is always worked in same stitch as ch1.
• The last stitch in every row can be hard to spot. Make sure that you have the right stitch count in every row.
• The hat is adjustable in length. A chain of 70 makes a height of 36cm which is perfect to have a double brim. The length can be adjusted by simply making more or less starting chains.
• When joining crochet through the stitches and NOT through the turning chain to make the joining more solid.
