Pretty Alpaca Hat

Finally, I am getting around to publishing this pattern.

I made this hat using Drops Alpaca – The colour choice was dictated by what was lying around in my stash. You may remember that last christmas I made a hat for my brother in law to be for. If not you can find it here. I used the yarn leftover from that project to create this.

I think this hat is perfect for men and women so would make a great gift. Anyways, here is the pattern:

For this hat you should hold 2 strands together whilst working. For the whole set you need 2 balls of each colour.

At the end of each round, Ss into 1st dc stitch of the round then chain 3 (does not count as a dc)

1. Dc 12 into a magic circle. (12)
2. In the next round, dc twice in to each space. (24)
3. In the next round, dc twice into the first stitch then once into the next. Repeat. (36)
4. In the next round, dc twice into the first stitch then once into the next 2. Repeat. (48)
5. In the next round, dc twice into the first stitch then once into the next 3. Repeat. (60)
6. In the next round, dc twice into the first stitch then once into the next 4. Repeat. (72)
7. In the next round, dc twice into the first stitch then once into the next 5. Repeat. (84)
8. In the next round, dc twice into the first stitch then once into the next 6. Repeat. (96)

11. Dc in first stitch, *chain 2 (skip 2) and dc in the next 2*. Repeat until you reach the last ch 2, skip 2 then sc in the last stitxh of the round. Ss into first dc.
12. For the next round ss across the dc to the first ch2 space, then chain 3 and dc onto the ch 2 space. *Chain 2 then sc 2 times onto the next ch 2 space*. Repeat to end, ch 2 one last time and ss into first stitch of the round.
