Marisa


i just finished this hat.. excuse my face :)
i used a small amount of yarn from a Caron One Pound skein, i'm not certain how much, maybe 2 to 4 ounces? the color is Cream 589 and it made me think of my mom.
the skein was sitting there begging me to make a hat with it, so i did. it was very simple. very very simple. it looks much better and less like a washerwoman's head-dress if you wear it high and tilted on your head and close to the hairline, almost like a headband.
here's the pattern ;)

Materials:
WW yarn (i.e. Caron One Pound. Simply Soft is too thin and will result in a hat for a tiny head.)
US size H hook or equivalent for hat
US size G hook or equivalent for cuff



Using H hook
ch4

1. 9 dc in 4th ch from hook. Join with sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch4. (10 dc)

2. ch3 to count as first dc. dc in same st as joining. Make 2 dc in each dc around. Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3. (20 dc)

3. ch3 to count as first dc. dc in same st as joining and in next. Make (2dc in next dc, dc in next) around. Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3. (30 dc)

4. ch3 to count as first dc. dc in same st as joining and in each of next 2 dc's. Make (2dc in next dc, dc in each of next 2) around. Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3. (40 dc)

5. ch3 to count as first dc. dc in same st as joining and in each of next 3 dc's. Make (2dc in next dc, dc in each of next 3) around. Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3. (50 dc)

6. ch3 to count as first dc. dc in same st as joining and in each of next 4 dc's. Make (2dc in next dc, dc in each of next 4) around. Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3. (60 dc)

7. repeat Round 4. (90 dc)

8. ch3 to count as first dc. dc in next dc and in each around. Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3. (90 dc)

9-15. repeat Round 8.

At end of Round 15, fasten off yarn and weave in ends.

Make Cuff Using G Hook:

ch9
1. sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each across. (8 sc)

2. ch1, turn. working in bl only, sc in each sc across. (8 sc)

3-76. repeat Row 2.

At end of Row 76, do not fasten off. Instead, ch1 and work 90 sc's evenly along long edge of strip. This is the side that will attach to the bottom of the hat.

Turn hat inside out so WS of work is facing you. Also turn cuff so WS is facing out towards you.
Sl st cuff to hat evenly.
Sew short ends of cuff together while it is still inside out so that the seam won't show when you turn it right side in.
Cut yarn and weave in ends neatly.

Here is a picture of the hat without a head in it :)
so cute.

Good pattern, thanks! As another person on Ravelry commented, I only had 80 sc across in the final row of the hat. Not sure why, but I did the band to 80 rows and they matched up exactly. Thank you very much! (you can see how it turned out in my projects gallery on ravelry!)
