Pat­tern Notes

Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less other­wise stated. Be­gin­ning chain-8 counts as first dou­ble cro­chet, chain-2, skip next 2 stitches. Chain-2 at be­gin­ning of row or round does not count as first half dou­ble cro­chet un­less other­wise stated. The spe­cial join is used to make the seam of the hat less no­tice­able.
