Directions:

1: Ch 3, join with sl stitch to form ring. Ch 1, 6 sc in ring, (Do not join.) Place marker in last sc of each round.

2: 2 sc in each sc. (12 sc)

3: (1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc) around.

4: (1 sc in each of next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around. (24 sc)

5: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 3 sc) around.

6: (1 sc in each of next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around. (36 sc)

7: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 5 sc) around. (42 sc) (You can place the marker at the end of this row and keep it there until you do a few more rows. That way, if the hat is too tight or too loose, you can rip back to the marker and either add or subtract stitches from round 8 to adjust the size of the hat.)

8: (1 sc in each of next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around. (48 sc)

9: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 7 sc) around. (54 sc)

[If necessary to make the crown wide enough: (1 sc in each of next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around.]

10: Sl stitch into next sc, ch 1, sc in each stitch around, join with sl st to ch 1.

11-23: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, join with sl st to ch 1. (Try on your hat now and see if it's long enough for you. Add a row or two if it isn't long enough. Or take a row off if it's too long.)

24: Ch 1, (1 sc in each of next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc) around. Join with sl st to ch 1. [If you added a row after row 9, then do this instead: [(2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 9 sc) around. Join with sl st to ch 1.]

24-27: Ch 1, sc in each sc around. Join with sl st to ch 1.
Fasten off. (These last 4 rounds should curl up to make the brim.)
