  • The hat is worked flat. Chain up for the height and the number of rows is the circumference of the head.
  • Ch 2 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • You can use one colour as some sizes does not divide by four exactly. So that you won’t have too much of 1 colour at the end when you join the hat together.
  • When you change colour do not cut the previous yarn
