Working the posts

 

 

 

skip 2 sts, work shell here

 

Sorry for the smaller pictures, it was made small because of my old web site that limited my bandwidth. Future patterns will have bigger photos 😀

sc into the same space you slip stitched into, *sk 2 sts and DC 5 into same space, sk 2 sts, sc 1 * Repeat what is between *’s for rest of round. Until you reach the end of your round, sl st into first sc, and you can sl st again across to close the gap some, ch 1 and TURN YOUR WORK.

Repeat rows 10 and 11 until your hat measures 26 cms or 10 inches. You can make it longer, but you will need another skein of yarn. If you stop at 26 cms / 10 inches you should have enough yarn to finish the rim of the hat. But it’s your choice, it’s your hat after all 😀
