Cotton Summer Hat

i made this hat earlier this month but never got around to posting about it... since i gave it to my mom before it was even finished and she swept it away in a hurry :P
soo here are the pictures! i used the rest of that aunt lydia's cotton from the Simple Squares Bag, well actually theres still some cotton left on the roll haha
(oh yeah and i also made 2 cell phone holders from the same umm.. spool?) lol thats a lot of cotton :)
im pretty sure i used an aluminum size H hook (US)


Instructions:
ch 4. join with sl st to form ring.

1) ch3 to count as first dc. 2 dc in ring, *ch3, 3dc in ring. ch3*, 3dc in ring. repeat from *to* once, for 4 corner granny square. join with sl st to top of 1st dc.

2) ch3 to count as 1st dc, turn. (2dc, ch3, 3dc) in first ch2 space. ch1, *(3 dc, ch3, 3dc) in next ch2 space, ch1* repeat from *to* around. join with sl st to top of 1st dc.

3) ch3 to count as 1st dc, turn. 2dc in 1st ch space, ch1. *(3dc, ch3, 3dc) in next ch3 space. ch1, 3dc in next ch space, ch1. * repeat from *to* around. you should end with 4 corners and a 3dc group in between each corner. join with sl st to top of 1st dc.

4) ch3 to count as 1st dc, turn. (2dc, ch 1) in next ch space. make (3dc, ch1) in each space around. this is a rounding step, so you will have no corners. join with sl st to top of 1st dc.

5) ch3 to count as 1st dc, turn. (2dc, ch3, 3dc) in next ch space. (ch1, 3dc, ch1) in next ch space; twice. *(3dc, ch3, 3dc) in next ch space. ( ch1, 3dc, ch1) in next ch space; twice*. repeat from *to* around. you will have 4 corners with 2 groups of 3dc in between them. join with sl st to top of 1st dc.

6-12) repeat Round 4. you will have 16 groups of 3dc.

13) ch1, sc in same st as joining and in each dc around, putting 2sc in the ch1 spaces between 3dc groups. (so you get a nice flare) you should have 80 sc's around. join with sl st to top of 1st sc (in this case the first ch1 doesnt count as a stitch)

14) ch1, sc in same st as joining and in each around. join with sl st to 1st sc. (80 sc's around)

15) ch3 to count as 1st dc. dc in same st as joining. dc in each of next 4 sc. (2 dc in next sc, dc in each of next 4 sc) around. join with sl st to top of 1st dc. (96 dc around)

16) ch1, sc in same st as joining and in each around. join with sl st to top of 1st sc. (96 sc around)

Fasten off, weave in ends.

I'm giving this hat a try. I am working with a different hook, so it will come out smaller...for my daughter. So far, so good, I think I am on step 5. I will keep you posted how this works up.

hey, mari, found your site from c'ville. LOVE LOVE your Patria purse!! i especially love the way you worked those handles. i think it makes the purse look more roomy that way. Anyway, just wanted you to know i printed out your hat pattern (summer cotton) and am going to make it for my, also 20's daughter. thanks for posting this so i could nab it! lol

I just wanted to say thank you for sharing this pattern. I am on my third one for all the little girls in my life and they are loving them. I added some beads to a couple of rows for a little "bling" making the hats a hit!! Have a wonderful Summer.
