Materials
Size I/5.5 mm crochet hook
4 ply yarn worsted weight - 2 colors

In the tutorial, I worked the yarn by passing one color to the front and the other color to the back.  Later in the hat I did notice that the strand passed to the front may show a little more than it being passed to the back.  You can decide if you want to keep the yarn separated, passing one to the front and one to the back or pass both to the back.  You will need to unwind your yarn every so often by passing both to the back.

The chain 1 will not count as a stitch, only the step up.

Chain 16, join.

Round 1: Work 16 double crochet through the chain, join with the beginning chain.

The double crochet will be worked between each stitch.

Round 2 - 3:  Chain 1, *FPDC, DC between, leave the last 2 loops on the hook, this is where you will change color, and draw up the new color. Repeat around from. (16 sets of stitches, Front Post Double Crochet and 1 Double Crochet)

Round 4 - 5: Chain 1, *FPDC, 2 DC between, leave the last 2 loops on the hook of the last stitch, this is where you will change color, and draw up the new color. Repeat around from. (16 sets of stitches, Front Post Double Crochet and 1 Double Crochet)

Note:  You can stop increasing after round 4 and continue through round 12 for a toddler size cap 17 inches/43 CM around.  This is an estimate.  Your crochet style, hook and yarn size will play a role in the final outcome.

Round 6-7: Chain 1, *FPDC, 3 DC between, leave the last 2 loops on the hook of the last stitch, this is where you will change color, and draw up the new color. Repeat around from. (16 sets of stitches, Front Post Double Crochet and 1 Double Crochet)  

Note:  You can stop increasing after round 6 and continue through round 14 for a youth size cap 20 inches/51 CM around.  This is an estimate.  Your crochet style, hook and yarn size will play a role in the final outcome.

Round 8-16: Chain 1, *FPDC, 4 DC between, leave the last 2 loops on the hook of the last stitch, this is where you will change color, and draw up the new color. Repeat around from. (16 sets of stitches, Front Post Double Crochet and 1 Double Crochet)

Flaired Brim

Round 17: Chain 1, *FPDC, 5 DC between, leave the last 2 loops on the hook of the last stitch, this is where you will change color, and draw up the new color. Repeat around from. (16 sets of stitches, Front Post Double Crochet and 1 Double Crochet)


Round 18: Chain 1, *FPDC, 6 DC between, leave the last 2 loops on the hook of the last stitch, this is where you will change color, and draw up the new color. Repeat around from. (16 sets of stitches, Front Post Double Crochet and 1 Double Crochet)
