Start the hat body:
Switch to 6.5 mm hook Hold hat brim horizontally. You will now be crocheting into the ends of the scrows of the brim. Ch1, and work 69 sc evenly into the ends of the sc brim rows.To do this I followed this pattern.Work 1 sc in the first 2 row ends, 2 sc in the next row end. Continue this pattern(1,1,2) until the last 2 row ends. In the last 2 row ends work 1 sc in the next rowend, 2 sc in the last row end. Join with a sl st in the first sc.Now you will work in a continuous sprial round.R1: ch1, work 1sc and 2dc in the same st you put the joining sl st in (mark this firstsc), sk 2 sts, * (sc, 2dc) in the next st, sk 2 sts *, repeat * to * until the end of theround.DO NOT turn or join with a sl st.
