Bev's Ship Hat

Crochet warm hats for those in need. If you want to help your local homeless shelters with these, that would be great.

Size H Crochet hook

2 oz of sports weight yarn or a 'lighter' worsted weight You can also hold 2 strands of sock yarn together. For the hat pictured I used Lion Brand Woolese Sport yarn.

Ch 35  (Work each rown in the back loops to get that ridge.)
ROW 1: Dc in the 3rd ch from the hook and in each ch across row. Ch 3 and turn.
ROW 2: HDC in the dc nearest to the hook. (Other wise it leaves a small gap) HDC in each dc across. Ch 3 and turn.
ROW 3: Dc in the hdc nearest the hook, and in each hdc across row. Ch 3 and turn.
ROW 4 - 36: Repeat Rows 2 and 3. Ending on a HDC row.
(Keep doing a visual check to make sure the hat is staying even - about 8" across (this will be the height of the hat) .  The faux 'brim' will add another 1/2" or so.)
After your final ch 3 and turn, head across the 'brim' of the hat using 66 dc spread evenly across the row. Finish off at the end of the 'brim' row and leave a 20" tail of yarn to do the seams and gather the top of the hat. (The 'brim' is not one you will fold up.)

This will make a hat to fit a 21-22" head, to make them larger, simply add a 4 more chs, and 4 more rows


You now have a 19" x 8 1/2" rectangle.  Fold this in half lengthwise so it measures 9 1/2" x 8 1/2", and whip stitch your side seam shut.  Now weave the needle and yarn in and out around the top tthen pull tightly without breaking yarn.  I found I needed to place a few sts across the hole in the top, so I wouldn't need a pom pom.
