cap liner with baseball cap - side cap liner with baseball cap - front

Cap is made using Lion Heart microfiber yarn, or sport weight baby yarn and an I hook. Yarn must be thin so as not to bunch up under the baseball cap. Pattern may be worked with an H hook to make a smaller liner.

Round 1: chain 4, join, 11 dc in the ring.

NOTE: All following stitches are worked in front loop only so there is no seam on the inside of the hat, the seam is on the outside and touches the baseball cap and not the skin.

Round 2: ch 3, dc in same st, 2 dc's in each stitch around, join in top of first ch 3 with a sl st.

Round 3: chain 3, dc in same st, *dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc,* repeat from * around from until you get to the last stitch. 2 dc's in last stitch, join to top of first ch 3.

Round 4: chain 3, dc in same st, *dc in next 2 stitches, 2 dc in next st * Repeat around until last stitch. 2 dc's in last stitch, join to top of first chain 3.

Round 5: chain 3, dc in same st, *dc in next 3 sts, 2 dc in next st* repeat around until last stitch. 2 dc in last stitch, join in top of chain 3.

Round 6: chain 3, dc in same st, *dc in next 4 stitches, 2 dc's in next st* repeat around until last st, 2 dc's in last st, join in top of first chain 3.

Rounds 7-8 chain 3, dc in each st around, join.

Round 9: chain 2, *dc in next 2 sts, dc decrease* repeat around, join in top of first chain 3.

Round 10, chain 2, *dc in next 3 sts, dc decrease* repeat around, join in top of chain 3.

Round 11: chain 2, *dc in next 4 dc's, dc decrease* repeat around, join in top of chain 3.

Round 12: loosely sc in each st around to form band to hold liner to head. Hat should not slide around but shouldn't be so tight that it is uncomfortable. Sl. st in last two sts, finish off, weave in ends.

(If larger liner is desired, add an additional row of dc between rounds 8 and 9. If tighter/longer brim is necessary to hold hat to head, add another row of sc after round 12.)
