To start

ch 3 and sl st in beginning ch to make a ring.


Round 1

ch 1 and sc 12 inside the ring, sl st to join in beginning st.  (12 sts)


Round 2

ch 1 and sc two sc’s in each sc around, sl st in beginning st.  (24 sts)


Round 3

sc ch1 (counts as first dc) do a quad in next st *(dc two in next st, TRC in next st)*
til end, dc in beginning st to make it an increase then sl st into beginning ch.  
(36 sts)


Round 4

sc ch1 in first st (counts as first dc), dc two into next st, dc one into next st, TRC into next st *( dc 1, dc 2, dc1, TRC)*
sl st into beginning st to end round. 


Round 5 (We are done increasing!)

sc ch 1, dc into next st, then next st do a TRC (dc1, dc1, TRC)


Keep doing this until you reach the desired length of the hat.


Be sure to change colors at row’s 6 and 9 if you want to make one like I show here
if your doing a smaller hat change colors every 3 rows, or you could change color every row, or not at all! Try variegated yarn. Would love to see what you come up with.

Do 12 rows total for 2 & 3 year olds
and 13 rows total for 4 & 5 year olds


Making the rim of the Hat

To do the border of the hat you want to sc 7 then do a decrease, keep doing that for up to three rows until you get

2 & 3 = 44 sts
4 & 5 = 46 sts

once you get the sts you need just sc for the remander of the rows.


How to do the rim border

You need to do a reverse sc, or better known as crab st.


Don’t know how to do the crab stitch? here’s a tutorial for you
