  3. Row 2: sc in BLO of each sc across, ch 1, turn.
  4. Repeat Row 2 for the length needed to wrap around the head comfortably (typically around 40-50 rows, depending on head size). Sl st the ends together to create a band.

Body of the Hat:

  1. Switch to 8 mm Hook: Pick up and sc around the edge of the band. Distribute stitches evenly around. Join with a sl st to the first sc.
  2. Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc now and throughout), hdc in the same place as join and in each stitch around. Join with a sl st to the top of the beginning ch 2.
  3. Round 2: Repeat Round 1.

  2. Cut the Yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread the tail through a yarn needle, run it through the remaining stitches, pull tight to close, and secure with a knot.

Attaching Pompom:

  • Attach a fur pompom to the top for the finishing touch, sewing it securely to the hat.
