Instructions

Begin Brim With smaller double pointed needle (for Newborn, Baby and Toddler size) or smaller circular needle (for the Kid, Adult Small and Adult Large size), long-tail CO 48 (56, 64, 72, 80, 88) sts. Arrange the sts onto 3 double pointed needles, if using. Join in the rnd, being careful not to twist sts. Pm that is a different color than the rest. Choose one of the three brim styles to make: 2x2 Ribbed Brim Version (Shown in the Baby, Kid and Adult Small Sample) Rib Rnd: *K2, p2; rep from * around. Rep this rnd for 1 ½ (1 ½, 1 ¾, 2, 2 ½, 2 ½)”. Switch to larger double pointed needles (for Newborn, Baby and Toddler size) or larger circular needle (for Kid, Adult Small and Adult Large size). Proceed to Body. Folded Brim Version (Shown in the Adult Large Sample) Rib Rnd: *K1, p1; rep from * around. Rep this rnd for 3 (3, 3 ½, 4, 5, 5)”. Switch to larger double pointed needles (for Newborn, Baby and Toddler size) or larger circular needle (for Kid, Adult Small and Adult Large size). Proceed to Body. Rolled Brim Version (Shown in the Newborn and Toddler Sample) K 6 rnds in st st. (Piece should measure approximately ¾” from Cast On Edge.) Rib Rnd: *K1, p1; rep from * around. Rep this rnd for 1 (1, 1, 1, 1 ½, 1 ½)”. Switch to larger double pointed needles (for Newborn, Baby and Toddler size) or larger circular needle (for Kid, Adult Small and Adult Large size). Proceed to Body. Body (All Versions) Work in st st for 2 (2 ½, 3, 3 ¼, 3 ¼, 4)”. Work the following corresponding decrease row to setup the crown shaping: Newborn Size Only: Dec Rnd: *K14, k2tog; rep from * around—3 sts dec’d. 45 sts on needle. Proceed to Crown Shaping. Baby Size Only: Dec Rnd: K10, k2tog, k to end of rnd—1 st dec’d. 55 sts on needle. Proceed to Crown Shaping. Toddler Size Only Dec Rnd: *K14, k2tog; rep from * around—4 sts dec’d. 60 sts on needle. Proceed to Crown Shaping. Kid Size Only Dec Rnd: *K34, k2tog; rep from * around—2 sts dec’d. 70 sts on needle. Proceed to Crown Shaping. Adult Small Size Only K 1 rnd. 80 sts on needle. Proceed to Crown Shaping. Adult Large Size Only Dec Rnd: K27, k2tog, k28, k2tog, k27, k2tog—3 sts dec’d.. 85 sts on needle. Proceed to Crown Shaping. Crown Shaping (All Sizes) Since you will be decreasing in this section, and the circumference of the hat will get smaller, you will need to switch to double pointed needles. Switch when there aren’t enough stitches to fit comfortably around the circular. Or, continue to use magic loop method. Setup Rnd: *K9 (11, 12, 14, 16, 17), pm; rep from * around. Rnd 1: *K to 2 sts before m, k2tog, sm; rep from * around. Rnd 2: K around. Rep the last 2 rnds 1 (3, 2, 2, 1, 0) times more. 35 (35, 45, 55, 70, 80) sts on needle. Then work just Rnd 1 until 10 sts remain. Newborn, Baby, Toddler and Kid Size Only: Next Rnd: *K2tog; rep from * around—5 sts dec’d. 5 sts remain. All Sizes Choose one of the hat finishes: Normal Hat Finish (Shown on all hats except the Baby Hat sample) (Remove markers when you get to them) Cut yarn, leaving a 6” tail. Thread tapestry needle and draw through sts. Fasten off. I-cord Knotted Top (shown in the Baby Size Sample) (Remove markers when you get to them). Rearrange the sts so that they are on one dpn. Rnd 1: Do not turn work after last rnd, Instead, slide the sts to the opposite end of the needle. K2tog, k1 k2tog—2 sts dec’d. 3 sts on needle. Rnd 2: Do not turn work after last rnd. Instead, slide the sts to the opposite end of the needle. K across. Rep this rnd 7 times more or to desired length. Cut yarn, leaving a 6” tail. Thread tapestry needle and draw through sts. Fasten off. Tie the icord into a knot. Finishing Weave in any remaining loose ends. Steam lightly if desired, avoiding the ribbed portion of the hat or else it may lose its elasticity. Pom Pom (Optional) If you have extra yarn, make a pom pom and attach to hat. For our Adult Small Sample, we used a pom pom maker to make a 3 ½” pom pom and took 30 yards. If you don’t have a pom pom maker, take a piece of cardboard or small book and wrapp the yarn around many times. Slide the loops off the cardboard or book. Then, tighten a strand of yarn around the center of all the wraps. Tying multiple times tightly is a good idea. Cut the end of each loop and trim to create a round shape. Attach to the top of the hat.
