I didn't decide how to create this look.
I just decided to put x number of stitches of each color on each
round and this is how it turned it out.

Untie top of hat and weave in those ends too.



NOTES;
I tried to make each round easy to follow along. I broke it down in steps so that you could check off each step as you make it.

If you make a mistake in how many stitches you did with one of the colors it is not necessary to take it out and redo it. Just leave that amount of stitches. There is no right or wrong way to create this hat.

If you find a mistake that I made in how many stitches you do for that color. Do not take it out and redo it. Just leave that amount of stitches. There is no right or wrong way to create this hat.

You can change how many stitches you desire of any color you are using. You can create endless number of designs with this pattern! I have already thought of ten different designs I can make with this pattern.

It is best that you carry unused color behind the stitches so it doesn’t show. I found my self sometimes carrying the yarn just above the line of stitches where I could see it but this will allow the used color show between your stitches. Its important to pay attention to that.

You can add additional rows but you have to create your own row counts for each color. It’s not hard to do.

When I started this hat I crocheted firmly on each row but as I continued I loosened my stitches because I wasn’t paying attention. I was also stopping and starting this at the nursing home.

This pattern is 12 pages long but it does not take a long time to complete. Once you get used to making the color changes and carrying your second color it will take no time to make it. It took me forever because I had to write it down as I created it.

For Your Information;
This hat was made Vanna’s Choice, Kelly Green and Beige 3 ounces each, a size I hook, and 14 rounds with no edging on the hat.

Coming Soon! St. Paddy's Hat!

I finally finished the hat! It took awhile because I had to stop and write it down as I went.

Here's some pics.

The colors.

Just a medium sized peak! 


I'm only halfway done typing it. As soon as I can I will post the hat pattern. 

If I'm lucky I might finish it tomorrow.
