To check the gauge, start with a few stitches of the pattern and measure the width of the hat. If the band is too wide, start over with a smaller hook. If too narrow, try a larger hook. The key to this pattern is making sure the width of the headband as you will be able to add as much length as you want.

This pattern has been written for an adult-sized head. Information is included on how to customize the hat for any size (i.e. infant, child, teenage, small adult, etc.).

The Pattern

Create a slip knot and place on the crochet hook

☐ Ch 20.  Take the Chain Stitch and measure from the tip of your nose to the crown of your head.  This will customize the hat!  May need to have more or less than chains.

☐ Row 2: Working into your chain, SC in the 2nd chain from the hook.  Continue with SC to the end of the row (total ch minus 1).

☐ Row 3: Ch 1.  Turn.  SC in each previous SC (total ch minus 1)

☐ Row 4 – 42.  Repeat pattern (Ch 1.  Turn.  SC in each previous SC (total ch minus 1). 

Check off Chart for Rows

Customize the width of your hat by measuring around your head.  This may end up being more or less than the 42 rows.

For this pattern, it does not matter which side is facing you. 

Using a Sl ST, continue through both pieces until you reach the end. Leave a 10-inch tail with the yarn and cut.

Using the tail and a yarn needle, weave in/out of the top of the hat and tighten as you are going around.  Pull tight and sew across the top in a X pattern. 

Tie off and weave in ends.
