GAUGE: Not Important, this pattern uses the size chat at the end of the pattern to achieve the size hat you desire.




ABBREVIATIONS & STITCHES
blo = back loop only

sc = single crochet
ch = chain

st(s) = stitch(es)
RS = right side

WS = wrong side

NOTES FOR HAT
1.      This hat can be made for any size from a preemie to an adult male. 
      You will need to make your crown the circumference and height 
      of the person you are making the hat for.
2.      Check the chart at the bottom of the pattern for the circumferences
      and heights for different ages of individuals. Then, fill in the
      information you need below.
a.       _____ Circumference of Head
b.      _____ Circumference For Hat
c.       _____ Height of Hat
3.      To make measuring the hat easier:
a.      cut a piece of yarn in one color the length of the 
      circumference of the hat.
b.      Cut another piece of yarn, in a different color, the 
      length of the height you need.
4.      Do not fasten off. Carry un-used color until the next use.
5.      HINT: To get a GREAT size match, use Styrofoam balls with the 
                 circumference of the head you want to fit. This works 
                 SO MUCH BETTER than measuring in inches.

SET UP FOR HAT
Row 1 (RS): Make a chain equal to, or close to, the height 
                    needed, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each 
                    ch to the end, ch 1, turn.

Row 2 (WS): Sc in blo of each st but stop 5 sts before the 
                     end, ch 1, turn.

Row 3: Sc in blo of each st to the end, ch 1, turn.

Row 4: Sc in blo of each st to the end of row 2, then sc
