This stitch is done in multiples of 2

 

Once you have the size needed then move onto the stitch portion of the pattern.

 

I used 3 colors for my hat. You can use as many as you want, but pick a main color that you wish to use for the top of and rim of the hat. I have found that the darkest of the colors works best.

 

 

To Start

ch 3, sl st in beginning ch to form a ring.

 

 

 

Round 1

Ch 2 and work 11 dc’s in 3rd chain from hook, sl st in beg ch 2 to end round. The ch 2 counts as a stitch (for every round) so you should have (12 sts total.)

 

 

Round 2

ch 2 and dc into same stitch, dc 2 in all sts, sl st into beg ch 2 (24 sts)

 

 

 

Round 3

ch 2, dc 2 in next stitch * dc 1, dc 2 * repeat for round, sl st into beg ch 2 (36 sts)

stop increasing for Baby size

 

 

 

Round 4

ch 2, dc 1 in next stitch * dc 2, dc 1, dc 1 * repeat for round, sl st into beg ch 2 (48 sts) stop increasing for Toddler \ Child size

 

 

 

Round 5

ch 2, dc 1 in next 2 sts, * dc 2, dc 1, dc 1, dc 1 * repeat for round, sl st into beg ch 2 (60 sts) Teen \ Adult female

 

 

Round 6

ch 2, dc 1 in next 3 sts, * dc 2, dc 1, dc 1, dc 1, dc 1 * repeat for round, sl st into beg ch 2 (72 sts) Adult Male

So now to answer the question, how many rows you need to do?

 

Since this hat is done in so many rows and colors that are all blended together it makes counting each row very hard! Trust me! So lets go by measurement. Get out your tape measures and let me show you how to measure to get the size you need.

 

 

 

Baby – 3 to 6 months
Hat height= 6.5 – 7″ \ cms 16.5 – 17.7

 

Baby – 6 to 12 months
Hat height = 7.5″ \ cms 19

 

Toddler – 12 months – 3 years
Hat height = 8″ \ cms 20

 

Child – 3 – 10 years
Hat height = 8.5″ \ cms 21.5

 

Teens, Adult Woman and Adult Man
Hat height 9 – 10″ \ cms 22.8 – 25.4

 

 

 

 

 

How to measure your hat: Lay your hat flat, make sure your first row at the top of the hat is in half, this will ensure your hat is folded perfectly in half.

Then measure from the first round at the top, to the last round you crocheted. The number you are looking for is 1 inch or 2.52 cms less that total number desired. To leave room to make the rim.

 

 

If you are making a Baby – 3 to 6 months, you would stop crocheting the dimension stitch once your hat measured 5.5” or 14 cms. Then start your rim.

 

 

If you are making a Baby – 6 to 12 months, you would stop crocheting the dimension stitch once your hat measured 6.5” or 16.51 cms. Then start your rim.

 

 

If you are making a Toddler – 1 – 3 years, you would stop crocheting the dimension stitch once your hat measured 7” or 17.78 cms. Then start your rim.

 

 

If you are making a Child – 3 – 10 years, you would stop crocheting the dimension stitch once your hat measured 7.5” or 18.98 cms. Then start your rim.

 

 

If you are making a Teens, Adult Woman and Adult Man, you would stop crocheting the dimension stitch once your hat measured 8.5” or 22 cms. Then start your rim.

 

Dimension Stitch Portion of Hat

 

I will be making my hat in 3 colors. You will be switching colors EVERY row, but DO NOT cut your yarn. You will be dropping it and picking it back up later as you need it.

 

Since you were using your main color to make the top of your hat, now it’s time to change to your second color.

 

 

Row 1 (change to 2nd color)

ch 3, sk a st * dc in next st, ch 1, sk a st * repeat for round. No need to ch 1 after the last dc of round, just sl st in the top ch of beginning ch 2.

 

Dimention Stitch Beanie 3

 

Dimention Stitch Beanie 4

 

 

 

 

 

Row 2 (change to 3rd color)

ch 1 and sc into ch, * dc into skipped st 1 row down, sc in dc * repeat for round. Sl st in the 2nd ch of beginning sc.

Dimention Stitch Beanie 6

 

 

 

 

 

Row 3 (change to 1st color)

ch 1 and fpdc onto ch two rows down, * sc into dc, fpdc onto dc 2 rows down * repeat for round, Sl st in the beg fpdc to end round.

 

Dimention Stitch Beanie 7

 

Dimention Stitch Beanie 8

 

 

 

 

 

Row 4 (change to 2nd color)

ch 1 and sc into fpdc, * fpdc 2 rows down on the fpdc from round 2, sc into next fpdc * repeat for round. Sl st in the beg sc to end round.

 

Dimention Stitch Beanie 9

 

Dimention Stitch Beanie 10

 

 

 

 

 

Row 5 (change to 3rd color)

ch 1 and fpdc onto ch two rows down, * sc into dc, fpdc onto dc 2 rows down * repeat for round, Sl st in the beg fpdc to end round.

 

 

Dimention Stitch Beanie 11

 

 

 

 

Row 6 (change to 2nd color)

ch 1 and sc into fpdc, * fpdc 2 rows down on the fpdc from round 2, sc into next fpdc * repeat for round. Sl st in the beg sc to end round.

 

Dimention Stitch Beanie 12

 

 

Repeat rows 3 – 6 until desired length is reached.

 

 

 

 

The Rim

Once your hat measures it’s correct size, make that you end your hat when you have switched back to the color you used for the top of the hat. Do another row if you need in order to accomplish that.

 

 

Using original color

Rounds 1 – 5

Put 1 single crochet in each stitch around. You should have the same amount of stitches that you had before starting your Dimension stitch.

So if you stopped increasing after round 4 because you are making a Toddler \ Child size which left you with 48 sts, you should have 48 stitches every row for the rim.

 

 

Dimention Stitch Beanie 13

 

 

\

Crochet 5 rounds or if you wish to do more if you want to get to the full correct size (see below the sizing) of the full length the finished hat should be.

 

Baby – 3 to 6 months
Hat height= 6.5 – 7″ \ cms 16.5 – 17.7

 

Baby – 6 to 12 months
Hat height = 7.5″ \ cms 19

 

Toddler – 12 months – 3 years
Hat height = 8″ \ cms 20

 

Child – 3 – 10 years
Hat height = 8.5″ \ cms 21.5

About the Author:

Hi I'm Candy from Meladora's Creations and I design crochet patterns and film them for my YouTube channel. I want to start by saying, I am by no means a professional teacher. I figure things out as I go along and I love playing with yarn! This is how I have discovered new crochet stitches. I am a mother of two and I live in Israel presently, but I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I met a man on an online game and became friends and through time we fell in love and I came out here to Israel to be together. From lack of knowing how to speak Hebrew, I had to find a way to help take care of our two kids, so after sharing my crochet projects online and being asked to do a tutorial on one of them, I finally broke down and tried it.
