HALF LOOPED

half looped, the hat, not me

I and G hook
ww yarn - not sure of amount, my finished hat weighs 5 oz

This hat is fairly large and it "grows" as you are making it. You might want to take this into consideration and adjust your hook sizes to suit your own needs.

HAT
Ch 4, join


Row 1: Ch 1, 12 sc in ring. Do not join, use marker to show beginning of rows.

Work in back loop only on rows 2 through 25, leaving the front loop free to use later in the pattern.
Row 2: 2 sc in each st around.

Row 3: (1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) around

Row 4: (1 sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st) around

Row 5: (1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st) around

Row 6: 1 sc in each st around

Row 7: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 4 sts) around

Row 8: 1 sc in each st around

Row 9: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 5 sts) around

Row 10: 1 sc in each st around

Row 11: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 6 sts) around

Row 12 - 25: 1 sc in each st around

HAIN LOOPS (the chain loops are placed in the unworked loops of the sc stitches)

Ch 1, turn, sl st in free loop of last sc made, ch 10, sl st in same loop.

Sl st in free loop of next st, ch 10, sl st in same st. continue for 10 rounds or until it is as "fluffy" as you want it.

fasten off and weave in ends.
