Windy's Hat

Last night, my good friend Windy came over to stitch n bitch with me. We had so much fun! Anyway, she liked one of the hats I had made recently so I thought I would 1.) share it with all of you, and 2.) name it after her. I think she'll be pleased.

Windy's Hat

2.5 oz ww yarn (sorry I didn't weigh each color individually, but you could make it all one color)
J hook (or I hook as I tend to crochet pretty tightly)
stitch markers

Notes: this hat is made seamlessly (until the brim) so be sure to mark your stitches, if necessary.

Super basic hat pattern:
Round 1: Ch 4, 11 dc in 4th ch from hk (12 dc)
Round 2: *2dc in each st around (24 dc)
Round 3: *2dc, dc. Repeat from * around. (36 dc)
Round 4: *2dc, dc 2. Repeat from * around. (48 dc)
Round 5: *2dc, dc 3. Repeat from * around. (60 dc)
Round 6: dc in each st around until hat reaches approx. 6" in length. If changing color, do so now. If not just sl st to join and continue on with brim.

Brim pattern:
Turn hat inside out. You will be working with wrong side facing you (see pic).

Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc 2, fpdc 2, *dc 3, fpdc 2. Repeat from * around. Sl st to top of ch 3 to join.
Round 2: Repeat Round 1 until brim reaches approx 3" in length. Fasten off and weave in ends. Turn hat right side out, fold up brim and you are done!
