This is a hat that I made my friend Kendal, I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn and a size K hook. Over all it took me around two hours to make and that was while I was watching online lectures as well as taking notes, so needless to say this is a pretty easy project.
Kendals Fishermans Hat Pattern
Notes: This hat is worked in continuous rounds. Do not join at the end of rounds. Also I created the ribbed appearance by crocheting in the back loop of each stitch.
Round 1: Work 6 single crochet in 2nd chain from hook [ 6 stitches]
Round 2: 2 single crochet in each stitch [ 12 stitches]
Round 3: Sc (single crochet) in next stitch, then 2 sc in stitch after that. Repeat till you have [18 stitches]
Round 4: Sc in each of the next two stitches, then 2 sc in next stitch. Repeat till you have [24 stitches]
Round 5: Sc in each of the next three stitches, 2 sc in next stitch. Repeat till you have [30 stitches]
Round 6: Sc in each of the next four stitches, 2 sc in next stitch till you have [44 stitches]
Round 7 - 20: Sc in each stitch around.
You don't necessarily have to do 20 rounds, just Sc around evenly, trying on the hat until it covers the ears.
Fasten off First color and join Second color.
Round 21: Sc under both strands of the V of the stitches in round 20 `
Round 22 - 25: Sc in the front loop of each stitch
Round 26: Sc in front loop of previous row AND in front loop of round 14. Fasten Off.
