PAT­TERN NOTES

Join with slip stitch un­less oth­er­wise in­di­cated. For hat body and ears, work in con­tin­u­ous rounds with­out join­ing. Place marker to mark first stitch of round and move marker up as work pro­gresses. The stitch used in this pat­tern is called a cast on sin­gle cro­chet. It is a new cro­chet stitch tech­nique, but it is easy to mas­ter and sim­ple to work. It cre­ates a beau­ti­ful knit- look rib­bing, which looks sim­i­lar to a garter stitch in knit­ting. The cast on sin­gle cro­chet be­gins with a loop that is “cast on” the hook. This is done by wrap­ping the yarn around your in­dex fin­ger so it crosses. This “cast on” tech­nique re­places the tra­di­tional “yarn over” as a way to add a loop to your hook.

SPE­CIAL STITCHES

Slip ring: Leav­ing 4- inch end, lap yarn over 4- inch end form­ing lp (see il­lus­tra­tion), insert hook through lp from front to back, yo, pull through lp to form ring, yo, pull through lp on hook. Cast on 1 loop (Cast on 1 lp): Wrap the yarn around in­dex fin­ger so it crosses (see il­lus­tra­tion). Insert hook into lp cre­ated on fin­ger and slip lp off fin­ger and onto hook. Cast on sin­gle cro­chet (co- sc): Cast on 1 lp (see Spe­cial Stitches), insert hook in in­di­cated st, yo, pull lp through st and all lps on hook. Half dou­ble slip stitch ( hdsl st): Yo, insert hook in in­di­cated st, yo and pull through all lps on hook.

PAT­TERN NOTES

There is no right or wrong side to any of the pieces in this pat­tern; how­ever, when join­ing pieces to­gether, choose which side you want to be the right side and be sure to match the pieces up so the rib­bing lines up on both front and back pieces. The stitch used in this pat­tern is called a cast on sin­gle cro­chet. It is a new cro­chet stitch tech­nique, but it is easy to mas­ter and sim­ple to work. It cre­ates a beau­ti­ful knit- look rib­bing, which looks sim­i­lar to a garter stitch in knit­ting. The cast on sin­gle cro­chet be­gins with a loop that is “cast on” the hook. This is done by wrap­ping the yarn around your in­dex fin­ger so it crosses. This “cast on” tech­nique re­places the tra­di­tional “yarn over” as a way to add a loop to your hook.

SPE­CIAL STITCHES

Cast On 1 Loop (Cast on 1 lp): Wrap the yarn around in­dex fin­ger so it crosses (see il­lus­tra­tion on page 68). Insert hook into lp cre­ated on fin­ger and slip lp off fin­ger and onto hook. Cast on sin­gle cro­chet (co- sc): Cast on 1 lp (see Spe­cial Stitches), insert hook in in­di­cated st, yo, pull lp through st and all lps on hook. Join with sin­gle cro­chet ( join with sc): Place a slip knot on hook, insert hook in in­di­cated st, yo and draw up a lp, yo and pull through both lps on hook.
