4 ply yarn
Tapestry Needle

Chain 5, join.
Round 1:  CH 1, Work 12 single crochet through the loop, do not join. Start the next round by working the first single crochet in top of the first stitch.  This will start the continual round.


Round 2:  Work 2 SC in each stitch around.  (24 Single Crochet Total) This is where you will want to use a yarn marker to mark the first stitch of a round, so you have an idea where the beginning of your round starts.

Round 3-4:  Work 1 SC in ea stitch around. ( 24 SC total)

Round 5:  Work 1 SC in ea of the next 2 stitches, work 2 SC in the next stitch. (32 SC total)

Round 6:  Work 1 SC in ea of the next 3 stitches, work 2 SC in the next stitch. (40 single crochet total)

Round 7: Work 1 SC in ea of the next 4 stitches, work 2 SC in the next stitch. (48 SC total)

Round 8:  Work 1 SC in ea of the next 3 stitches, work 2 SC in the next stitch. (60 SC total)

Round 9: 1SC in ea stitch around (60 single crochet total) 

Round 10:  Work 1 SC in ea of the next 4 stitches, work 2 SC in the next stitch. (72 SC total)

Round 11-12: Work 1 SC in each stitch around. (72 SC total)

Round 13:  Skip 1 stitch, Slip Stitch in the next to even off the round.  Work 1 SC in the BLO - Back Loop Only, in each stitch around.


Round 14-25: Continue the round by the working the first single crochet in top of the first stitch.  This will start the continual round. Work 1 SC in each stitch around for the remaining length of the cap.


Round 13 Unworked Loops: Attach the same color or contrasting color of yarn to round 13 on the unworked loops.  I worked a round of reverse single crochet in the video tutorial.  You can work a round of regular single crochet if you prefer.

  7. Love the easy to follow directions and video... but I'm wondering about gauge. When you say "4 ply" I assume you're talking about a worsted weight [#4] yarn, but as we all know, the gauge of worsteds can differ a bit, depending on company, fiber, twist, etc. I can change the size of my hook easily enough if I experiment with gauge to get the right size hat.

    What would you suggest? I'm planning on making the hat in Patons classic wool.
