  • Step 1

    Chain 31 (the number of chains determines how long the hat is, if you want a longer hat, chain more)

    Rd1. Make 1 hdc in the second chain from the hook, using the back loop only. Then make one HDC in each chain til the end.

    Rd2-32. Make 1 hdc on back loop only in each stitch.

    Once you reach the desired width, slip stitch the last and first row of the hat together. Now you have a hat seam.

    Stem and curly-cue

    Join with green yarn and make 1 HDC only in every other stitch, that is, only in the grooves or only in the ridges. This effectively decreases the stitch count by half. Now you’ll have 16 HDC. If you made a larger hat you’ll have half of however many rounds you did.

    Rd1. 1 hdc in each stitch (16 hdc)
    Rd2. (hdc2tog, 1 hdc) around (8 hdc)

    this completes the base of the stem (for larger hat, decrease until you get to 8 stitches, remember to divide stitches in multiples of 8)

    Rd3-5. 1 single crochet in each stitch around (8 hdc)

    Rd6. (sc2tog, 4sc) twice (6 sc)- yes, this is correct, we have now switched to single crochet

    Rd6-8. sc in each stitch around.

    Rd9. sc2tog around. Now slip stitch the 3 last stitches shut. Do not cut the yarn.

    Chain 21, make 3 hdc in second chain from hook and each chain after that. This will create the curled effect. (and this portion is the same for any size)
