                                                    Northern Easy Stitch Hat

Northern Easy Stitch Hat
A great beginner hat
1 Ball Red Heart Supersaver in Jade
You will not need the whole ball
Crochet Hook Size H or 5.00
st - stitch
ch - chain
sk - skip
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
hdc - half double crochet
BLO - back loop only

This is about a ladies size medium hat for larger or smaller adjust your hook size up or down

Ch 15.
Row 1: Hdc in second ch from hook and each st to end.
Row 2: Ch 1, hdc in both loops in first st, hdc in BLO until last st, hdc in both loops in last st.
Continue with row 2 until ribbing measures around 18 inches. Then sl st across first and last row together. Turn hat right side out.
Ch 1, sc picking up 76 stitches around the brim. Sl st in first sc.
Rnd 1: Ch 2, sc in same st, dc in next st. Continue around with sc in next st, then dc in next st. Join with sl st.
Rnd 2: Ch 2, dc in same st, sc in next st. Continue around with dc in next st, sc in next st.
Continue with rows 1 and 2 until you have worked 7 inches in the body.
I prefer measuring rather than counting rows. I find that much easier.
When body finished tie off, then turn hat inside out, then using needle gather stitches and secure firmly.
Add pom pom and sew in ends.
