NOTES:
1. Hat is worked in joined rnds. At the end of each rnd, work a sl st to join last st to first st.
2. If you find it difficult to join the beg ch into a ring without twisting the ch, Rnd 1 can be worked as a row, then joined into a rnd, as follows: Ch 24, dc in 4th ch from hook (beg ch counts as dc), dc in each ch across; join with sl st in top of beg ch. Proceed to Rnd 2. When weaving in ends, use the beg tail to sew ends of first row together.


INSTRUCTIONS



HAT

Ch 24; taking care not to twist ch, join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.

Rnd 1: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next ch, and in each ch around; join with sl st in top of beg ch - 24 dc at the end of this rnd.

Rnd 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in each dc around; join with sl st in top of beg ch.

Repeat Rnd 2 until piece measures about 8 in. (20.5 cm) from beg.

Fasten off, leaving a long tail. Thread tail through sts of last rnd, pull to gather, and knot securely.

FINISHING

Following package directions, make a medium size pom-pom. Tie pom-pom to top of Hat. Weave in ends.
