This hat is working in round, so you can change the size to fit your head by making fewer or more rounds of increases.

4 years – teen (fits up to 22 inches)

You will need:

DK weight (8-ply) yarn in the following colors:

  • White (MC-main colour): around 100 g / 230 yards, held double. You can substitute any yarn that gives you gauge.
  • Pink (CC-contrast colour): small amount
  • Crochet hook size 6.0mm
  • Sewing yarn needle
  • Removable stitch markers or contrasting coloured yarn

Gauge: 2 single crochet stitches x 2 rounds = 1 square inch


In this pattern, you will work in the round continuously. You may use a removable
stitch marker or a short piece of yarn of contrasting colour to mark the
beginning of each round. At the end of each round, you will not join, but begin
the next round in the next stitch.

The stitch counts at the end of each round are given. If you are off by 1 or 2
stitches, do not worry about it.

Skill and abbreviations:

You will need to know how to make:

Chain (ch)

Stitch (st)

Slip stitch (sl st)

Single crochet (sc)

Crochet decrease (dec): sc 2 sts together
