Yarn of preferred colour and size.
A size 6mm crochet hook.
A pair of scissors.
A tapestry needle (to join and weave in your loose ends).
A tape measure.
Single crochet stitches (sc sts).
This hat is so simple to make since the whole pattern is a repeat of single crochet stitches.
Round 1: Make a chain of 41 stitches. (Foundation chain). Work 1 sc in each stitch across.
Round 2: Turn, chain 1 then work 1 sc in each stitch working on the back loops only.
For the rest of the project, repeat round 2 until your project measures 16 inches long then join the sides of your project using a tapestry needle.
After joining the sides, do not cut the yarn that is in the tapestry needle but instead use your yarn and tapestry needle to close the bottom end of your project. You can pass the yarn around the bottom, more than once and be sure to pull tightly to ensure that your bottom end will not get loose.
After ensuring that your bottom end is tightly closed,make your pom pom and attach it to the bottom end of your project and your hat is complete. (Will have a full article on pom poms in the weeks to come).
We cannot think of being acceptable to others until we have first proven acceptable to ourselves.
