• Hook: H, or size needed for specified gauge

Sizing: Measurements are approximate, actual subjects may vary.

6 M (14″), 1-2 Y (16”), 2-5 Y (18”), 5-8 Y (20”), Young Adult (22”), and Adult (24”)

Pattern Key
• St/Sts: Stitch / Stitches

Pattern Notes:

• Use these pictures to help place your increases on each row of your brim to create a fluid, floppy, round, hat; this will avoid specific points of increase.

• For the hat brim, the Ch 1 counts as your first St – it occupies the first space of each round.

• Increases should lean to the Left – they should not stack evenly.
