Notes:

  • Stitch multiple: 2 (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
  • Crochet stitch pattern : Tilted Pairs Stitch
  • The initial ch-3 does not count as stitch unless specified.
  • The turning ch-1 does not count as a stitch.
  • The sl st does not count as a stitch
  • Make your sl st tightly
  • You may customize the hat height by working the repeat as many, or as few, times as you wish. Every 3 rounds you add with the stitch pattern, will add approximately 1 inch of height to the hat. 
  • If you would like to add a little bit more height to the hat, work an additional round (or two) of sc in the back loop only. 
  • I use an invisible join to finish off my final round of stitches, you may substitute a sl st to join if you prefer.
  • I use a DMR (double magic ring) to begin my projects that are worked in the round. You may substitute a magic ring (magic circle), or a chain 3 and slip to form a ring, if you prefer.
