Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Cloche pattern

Notes:

  • Ch 2 at the beginning of each row counts as the first DC.
  • At the end of each row, join with a slip stitch.

Starting with a magic circle, stitch 10SC into circle. Join with a slip stitch.

  1. Ch 2 (1st DC), DC in same stitch. 2 DC in each remaining SC. 20.
  2. Ch 2, DC in same stitch. (DC in next stitch, 2 DC in following stitch) to end. 30.
  3. Ch 2, DC in each stitch around. 30.
  4. Ch 2, DC in each stitch around. 30.
  5. Ch 2, DC in each stitch around. 30.
  6. Ch 2, DC in each stitch around. 30.
  7. Ch 1, 1 HDC in each of next 6 DCs, 2 DCs in each of next 16 DCs, 1 HDC in each of next 7 DCs. 46.
  8. Ch 1, 1 HDC in each of next 8 stitches, 1 DC in each of next 27 st, hdc in next 9. 46.
  9. Ch 1, 11 HDC, 22 DC, 12 HDC. 46.
  10. Ch 1, 13 SC, 2 HDC, 14 DC, 2 HDC, 14 SC.  46.
  11. Ch 1, slip stitch around, join with a slip, weave in end. Wear your hat! You can adjust the length of the brim, or if your neck is cold, you can wear it with the brim in the back!
This project uses less than half a skein of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. You could use the remainder to make a flower accent, or you could trim your hat with a button or ribbon, if you like. Or wear it as is!
I made the first hat freeform last year (the charcoal one in my Ravelry projects). Today I decided to take a break from holiday gifts & write out the instructions – the cranberry hat is #2. I hope it makes sense to you, please let me know if you have any trouble with the pattern.
