The Pattern

Crown of Hat
With “A” ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1 (does not count as a st), work 6 sc into ring.
Do not join this or any other round. From this point on to end of rnd 11, work in back loops of sc only.
Rnd 2 and 3: 2 sc in each sc around. (24) Place marker to mark each round.
Rnd 4: *sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat from * to end. (30)
Rnd 5: *sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat from * to end. (36)
Rnd 6: *sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat from * to end. (42)

Rnds 7 – 11: Working 1 more sc between incs repeat rnd 6, 5 more times. End with a sl st.

Side band of hat:
This can be done two ways.
1: You can make this as a strip and sew on after.

2: You can attach as you make it.

Method 1:
Row 1: Chain 24. Sc in 2nd st of ch, 1 sc in each remaining st of ch, ch 1 and turn.

Row 2: Working in back loops from now on, 1 sc in each st to end, ch 1, turn. Repeat until piece is long enough to fit all round the crown. Either sew band onto crown or you can sc it on. Once the band is attached, sl st last row to first row and sc round.

Method 2:
Row 1: Chain 24. Sc in 2nd st of ch, 1 sc in each remaining st of ch. Sl st in in each on next 2 st. turn.
Row 2: Working in back loops from now on, 1 sc in each st to end, ch 1, turn.
Row 3: 1 sc in each st, sl st in next 2 sts, turn.
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until side band is worked round to beginning. Sl st last row to first row and sc round.
Beak:
This is worked like the beak of my Two Toned Beaked Hat as follows:
Rnds 1-4: Working on back side of rows, sc in ea sc in both loops of next 30 sc. Ch1 and turn.
Rnd 5: Dec 1 sc in each of the next 26 sc. Dec 1, ch 1, turn.
Rnd 6: Dec 1 sc in each of the next 24 sc. Dec 1, ch 1, turn.
Rnd 7: Dec 1 sc in each of the next 22 sc. Dec 1, ch 1, turn.
Rnd 8: Dec 1 sc in each of the next 20sc. Dec 1, ch 1, turn.
Rnd 9: Dec 1 sc in each of the next 18 sc. Dec 1.

Rnd 10: sc in ea sc all round hat. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

This really is a simple hat to make.
