|Here's a closer look at the stitches in the crown of the hat.
Using main color, ch 3, yarn over hook, draw a loop through center ch, yarn over and through 3 loops on hook (this forms a s d c, short double crochet), 9 more s d c; work around without joining.
Second round: 2 s d c in each st through the thread back of the ch.
Third round: * 1 s d c in first st, 2 s d c in next; repeat from * around.
Fourth round: 1 s d c in each of the first 2 sts, 2 s d c in next; repeat from * around.
Following Rounds: Continue adding 1 s d c on the 6 increasing lines, until in the eighth round there are 6 sts between widenings. Work straight for 7 rounds and then make 1 round of s c, to complete crown.
1 round of s d c increasing in every fourth st; 5 rounds even; end last round with 3 s c and 1 sl st; break off. Using Fuzzywool, sl st with 1 ch between each st of brim, taking up the back thread, then make a round of s c taking up the same sts as in the sl st round. Work 15 rounds of s c taking up both threads of the Fuzzywool; turn white part of brim under and sew to upper part.
With Fuzzywool ch 5, work in s c
back and forth until band is about 26 inches long;
finish with a border of Germantown in sl st.
BUTTON: Optional Use a wooden mould (substitute a
plastic ring), 1 inch in diameter. Ch 3, join, 6 s c in ring.
Second round: 2 s c in each st.
Third round: 2 s c in first st, 1 s c in next; repeat from * around.
Make as many even rounds as needed to cover button. Decrease by skipping every other st.
