Trc = treble or triple crochet (UK)
Htc = half triple crochet
Ss = slip stitch
Sts = stitches
Ch = chain
- Starting with a magic circle, ch 3 (counts at 1 trc) then work 11 trc (UK terms) into the ring.
(If you find a magic circle tricky, ch 4 then join with a slip stitch to form a loop).
Join your last trc to the top of ch3 with a slip stitch (12 sts).
- Ch3. 2trc into each stitch around. Join to ch3 with a ss. (24 sts).
- Ch3 trc into next stitch then 2trc. (Trc, 2trc) repeat to end. Join with ss. (36 sts).
- Ch3. (Trc, trc, 2trc) repeat to end. Join with ss. (48 sts).
- Ch3. (Trc, trc, trc, 2trc) repeat to end. Join with ss. (60 sts).
- Ch3. 60trc. Join with ss. Repeat this row until the body of the hat is long enough. Approx 9 times.
This section is worked at 90 degrees to the main body of the hat. Half triple crochet (htc) should be worked into the back loop only to create a ribbed effect.
- Ch 8. Turn.
- Skip 2ch. 6htc. Slip stitch into next stitch on hat body to join row to main hat. Ss into next stitch. Turn.
- 6htc. Turn.
- Ch2 (counts as htc). 5htc. Ss into next stitch on hat body. Ss. Turn.
- 6htc. Turn.
- Ch2. 5htc. 2ss. Turn.
- Repeat this row to the end. Slip stitch the final htc row to the first. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Use a pom pom maker or other method of your choice to make a nice big pom pom. Stitch to the top of your finished hat securely and weave in ends.
Wear and enjoy!
