adult/teen sized hatBev's ADULT/TEEN HAT
Copyright Beverly A. Qualheim 2005, 2012
Size H hook

2 oz - 4 Ply worsted weight yarn (acrylics wash up well and seem to last.)
Ch 65.
ROW 1: Dc in 3rd ch from the hook and in each ch across. Ch 3. Turn.
ROWS 2-32 (or until hat measures approx. 12" in height): Dc in 2nd st in from edge chain, and then across to end of row. Ch 3. Turn. Row 33: Dc as in previous rows, to end of row. Don't ch 3, just cut yarn enough to sew side seam and end off by pulling yarn through last stitch.

Sew sides together using a whip stitch. For top - make a running stitch in and out of the sts of the last row of dc, and pull tightly to gather the top.
Add a colorful pompom to the top to keep the top tightly shut. I run pompom tail threads under a couple of stitches and tie tightly to secure. If you don't want a pompom, you can just flip hat inside out and sew the top closed nicely.  Flip back to the right side, roll up a nice big, warm brim, and wear!

This looks really bright and pretty if you use different colors every few rows to create colored stripes.
