PONY TAIL HAT
Copyright © 2004 Dot Matthews
I used an H hook and WW yarn. And 2 Small rubber bands
Rnd 1) make 18 sc around a rubber band, join in back loop of first sc.
NOTE: beginning ch 3 counts as 1st dc.
Rnd 2) working in back loop only for this round, ch 3, 1 dc in same space as join, 2 dc in each st, around, join (total sts = 36)
Rnd 3) ch 3, dc in same space as join, (dc in next st, 2 dc in next st) repeat around, join
(total sts = 54)
picture shows first 3 rounds.
Rnd 4 - 8 ) ch 3, dc in each st.around, join (total sts for each round = 54)
Rnd 9 - 13) ch 1, sc in each st around, join
Rnd 14) ch 2, sl st in next st, * ch 2, sk next st, sl st in next st* repeat from * around, join
Fasten off and weave in ends.
pictures before adding poof on top
POOF at the top of the hat:
These stitches are worked in the unworked loops of round one.
Attach yarn in any unworked loop of round one.
picture shows where to attach yarn for the poof.
(Ch 10, sl st in same stitch) 3 times
sl st in next st, (ch 10, sl st in same stitch) 3 times. Continue around, having 3 ch 10"s and 4 sl sts in each stitch.
If you want a fuller "poof" do 4 chain 10's instead of 3 in each stitch. If you want a bigger "poof", chain 15 or 20 instead of 10.
