STITCH EXPLANATION:

rev sc (reverse single crochet) Single crochet worked from left to right (right to left, if left-handed). Insert hook into next stitch to the right (left), under loop on hook, and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all loops on hook.
sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook - 1 st decreased.



NOTES:

1. Hat is worked in joined and turned rnds beg at lower edge. Join last st of each rnd to first st, and turn at beg of each rnd.
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: Leaving a long beg tail, ch 65, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across; join with sl st in first sc - 64 sc. Use beg tail to sew gap at base of first row closed. Proceed to Rnd 2.
