Pattern Info: 

  • This hat is worked vertically instead of horizontally, your chain will equal the height of the hat (top to bottom) and the rows will equal your width
  • Each row is worked around a hair tie/pony tail holder via a sl st
  • Multiples of 4 + 1
  • 8 rows = approx. 3 inches
  • You can test your size out by doing the first 8 rows as written in the instructions to get your gauge and then make adjustments as necessary.
  • Yarn brand, crochet technique, tension, etc will affect your hat size. You can either change hook sizes or just make adjustments to the math according to your measurements
  • Because of the way the hat gathers around the hair tie I added an extra inch in my length. When flat without being sewn closed it is 8 inches, but once sewn closed it is about 7 inches.
  • Pattern uses worsted 4 yarn and H5mm hook
  • Size chart for making it larger or smaller is included
  • Purple hat that is in the photos is by Pattern Tester Margie Leverette. It is the women's adult size.
