This is my Patriotic hat.
It can be made to fit any size head. I crocheted two for my young grandsons,
. . . they loved them!
Materials: about 3 oz. Worsted
Weight Yarn in Red, White and Blue; size G hook
Instructions: Measure around
head and make a chain a little smaller because the hat will stretch.
With Blue yarn, chain 50 (or the size needed to go around the head)
Row 1: Dc in the 3rd ch from
the hook and in each chain across. Chain 3, Turn.
Rows 2 - 4: Dc in each dc
across. At end of Row 4, drop Blue and draw up Red in last dc, ch 3, turn.
Rows 5 - 8: Dc in each dc
across to end of row. At end of Row 8, drop Red and draw up White in last dc, ch 3, turn.
Rows 9 - 35: Continue alternating
rows in this manner, ending each row with ch 3, turn. At end of Row 35 (or desired height), end off, leaving about 12" length
for sewing hat together.
Using the 12" length, sew sides together through all 4 loops. At top of hat, stitch around and
pull through tightly to gather. End off, weaving in ends.
