Bev's Hidden Hat
copyright 2009, 2016 Beverly A Qualheim - All Rights Reserved
This is a pretty hat, complete with a pretty sunflower. A hat that has hidden warmth built right in.
(And yes, that's my dog lying right next to the hat. She decided it was for her and didn't want to move!)
Rnd 2: Ch 3 and make a dc in the same stitch. * 1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, Repeat from * around making sure to dc into the base of the ch 3. (23 sts including ch3) Join with a slip stitch in top of 1st dc of previous rnd.
Rounds 3 and 4 are the same
as the 2nd. (52
dcs including ch3)
Rnd 5: Ch 3 and make a dc in the same stitch, then dc in each dc around including into base of ch3 of the previous row, joining with a sl st in the top of the 1st dc of the round you just finished.
Rnds 6, 8, 10, 12, 14: Ch 3 and make front post dc in each dc around hat. Join as in previous rounds. This forms ridges every other row, and makes the hat snuggly warm.
Rnds 7, 9, 11, 13: Repeat row 5.
Rnd 14: Ch 1 and sc in each dc around.
SUNFLOWER: Using black yarn chain 4, form a ring by joining with a slip stitch. Ch 3, and make 11 dcs inside ring. Join with sl st to top of dc. Add in yellow yarn for petals. *(Chain 3, sc into the 2nd chain from hook, hdc into 3rd chain from hook. Join with sc in the next dc). Repeat from * around black middle.
Attach flower either by stitching it on, or by using the 'yarn ends' on the backside of the flower, to tie it on to the hat. Just pull 2 of the yarn ends through to the inside of the hat, and tie in a square knot. This way you can make other accessories to attach to the front if you wish.
