I used ww yarn, H hook for hat and F hook for loops.
With larger hook (H), Ch 4, join
Row 1: Ch 1, 8 sc in ring. Do not join, use marker to show beginning of rows.
Work in back loop only on rows 2 through 20, leaving the front loop free to use later in the pattern. Numbers in ( ) at end of rows, indicates total number of stitches you should have at the end of the row.
Row 2: 2 sc in each st around. (16)
Row 3: (1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) around (24)
Row 4: (1 sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st) around (32)
Row 5: (1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st) around (40)
Row 6: 1 sc in each st around (40)
Row 7: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 4 sts) around (48)
Row 8: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 5 sts) around (56)
Row 9: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 6 sts) around (64)
Row 10 - 20: 1 sc in each st around (64)
AT END OF ROW 20, SL ST IN BOTH LOOPS OF NEXT ST.
SWITCH TO F HOOK
CHAIN LOOPS (the chain loops are placed in the unworked loops of the sc stitches)
With smaller hook, 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 6 rounds or until it is as "fluffy" as you want it. fasten off and weave in ends.
