Free Toddler Hat -or- Little Bowl Pattern


SIMPLE TODDLER HAT
-or-
LITTLE BOWL
PATTERN

Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver
Hook: USI9/5.50mm

Key:
hdc (half double crochet)
st (stitch)
rep (repeat from * to * around)
Dec (Decrease)
hdc2tog (half double crochet 2 together)
sc (single crochet)
dc (double crochet)
sl st (slip stitch)

This is worked in spiral, so do not join each round.  Use a stitch marker to note the beginning of each round.

Make a magic loop and do 8 hdc in the loop.
Round 1~ 2hdc in each st
Round 2 ~ *2hdc in same st, hdc in next st* rep
Round 3 ~ *2hdc in same st, hdc in next 2 sts*
Round 4 ~ *2hdc in same st, hdc in next 3 sts* rep
Round 5 ~ *2hdc in same st, hdc in next 4 sts* rep
Round 6 ~ *2hdc in same st, hdc in next 5sts* rep
Round 7 ~ *2hdc in same st, hdc in next 6 sts* rep
Rounds 8+ ~ hdc in each st (every round) for about 2 1/2"
Dec Round 1 ~ *hdc in next 6 sts, hdc2tog* rep
Dec Round 2 ~ hdc in each st around
Dec Round 3 ~ *hdc in next 5 sts, hdc2tog* rep
Dec Round 4 ~ hdc in each st around
Dec Round 5 ~ *hdc in next 4 sts, hdc2tog* rep
Dec Round 6 ~ sc in each st around
Dec Round 7 ~ sc in each st around
Edge ~ *(sc, dc, sc) in next st, sl st in next st* rep.  Join with a sl st.  Weave in ends.
Note ~ I needed to stretch out the brim of the hat a bit before it would fit my little one's head, but once I did that it fit comfortably on her.  It was tight enough that she could not yank it right off, but was still loose enough that it did not leave any redness or marks on her, and she was quite content to keep it on.
