    ✅Worsted weight cotton thread that you like.

    ✅ G-6 (4.0mm) size hook.

    ✅ Scissors.

    ✅ Tape measure or ruler.

    ✅ Point marker.

    ✅ Thread needle.


    ✅ Crown section measures 6.5″ wide. The center section measures 3.5″ long. Wing section measures 2.5 inches wide.

    ✅ The piece is an average adult hat size, for a head that measures 21-22 inches in circumference.


    ✅ After round 13, the hat should measure 15 cm wide.

    ✅ To check the gauge, crochet the crown section of the hat pattern (rows 1-13) and measure the width of the circle. It should measure about 4 inches wide after Round 9 and 6.5 inches wide after Round 13.


    This hat is worked in spiral rows. When you start a new round, use the stitch marker to mark the first stitch of the round. When you reach the end of the round, do not turn the piece or make a turning chain. Instead, make the first stitch of the next round in the first stitch of the previous round.

    Use a larger hook if you need a looser fit or a smaller hook if you need a tighter fit.

    If the brim of the hat is too flexible, consider using a smaller hook for the brim section. With a smaller hook you will get a denser and more resistant fabric that will not wrinkle.
