KayKay's Watch Cap Pattern Notes
(we do need a photo if anyone can share one!) :)

FYI ... Kay's notes
-- These are for adults.
-- I crochet extremely tight, so the hook sizes most likely will need to  be adjusted down a size or two.

Use a Size K Hook
Chain between 30 and 39 stitches - 9.5 to 11.5 inches or so.
Sc in back loop only - makes a ribbing pattern.  At end of row, ch 1 and turn.
Repeat this row until the piece is 18.5 to 20 inches long.
Connect into a tube using a slip stitches.
Switch to G Hook.
Sc around one end of tube (using full loop) - this is the "fold-up" end.
Switch to J Hook.
Attach with a sc, and sc around the other end of tube (using full loop)  - this is the crown end.
Connect with a sl st.
Ch 2 (first dc); dc in next 3 sc; skip 1 sc; *dc in next 4 sc; skip 1 sc.
Repeat * around tube.
Connect with a sl st.
Repeat * around tube.
Connect with a sl st.
Use one of these to finish off into the smallest hole you can:

sc, sc, dec sc; repeat around and around until you finish.

Or

sc, dec sc; repeat around and around until you finish.

Cut the yarn about 6 inches.  Bring through loop to lock and end.

Using a large needle, thread the yarn and sew around the hole and pull  until hole is completely closed.  Finish off.  Weave ends.
