I will be adding all the versions I have of this pattern over the next few months. It’s very versatile and you can create so many different hats by starting with the basic pattern.
You can choose a yarn color for your hat that best matches your colors, or just pick whatever color that pleases you.

Rounds 7. Repeat Round 6 until hat just covers forehead.
To make colored hair use an I hook and make your chain firmly and try to keep chains about the same size. You can use chunky or bulky weight yarn just change the size of your hook.
This is very easy.
Step 1. Make a slip knot on hook leaving a tail about 3 to 6 inches long. Make a row of chains as long as you want! I don’t count how many chains I am making unless I want them all to be the same length.
I make very long ones, about 100 to 120 chains, some short ones about 15 to 20, it’s just a matter of watching tv and knocking out as many as you want in any size!
Once you have completed your chain fasten off, BUT before you cut your yarn leave enough yarn so it is as long as your completed chain.
Attaching yarn to hat.
You can take your long length of yarn and use it to attach to your hat leaving the remaining yarn to hang down beside your completed chain.
With this hat you can actually make a lot of chains and attach them at the top of your hat putting as many as you can. Then you don’t have to attach any around the middle or bottom of hat. If you really want a lot of fullness then attach shorter chain amounts to other parts of the hat.
The tail on your chains can be trimmed to the size you want or leave as is.
For Your Information;
This hat was made with leftover worsted acrylic yarn, about 3 ounces, a size I hook, and 16 rounds with no edging on the hat. The colored strands of chains were made with leftover worsted weight yarn. Don’t forget you can decorate this hat too!
