Simple Spiral Beanie

Introduction
This stretchy one-skein project is halfway between a beanie and a slouchy hat. Crocheting in the back loop of half double crochet stitches mimics the look of the stockinette stitch in knitting.

Although this is listed as intermediate because of the special stitches, an adventurous beginner can make it. Now available in 8 sizes.

Skills used
Basic crochet stitches: chain, double crochet, half double crochet, single crochet, slip stitch
Working in rounds, increasing, working in back loop only
Special stitches: cdc, FPsc (written explanations provided in pattern)
