This hat is awesome! There is so much happening with this hat that it really doesn’t need anything added to it. I have made six of these now and they fit so comfortably.
Right now, my husband and I live off grid on a farm. This means that we have a lot, and I do mean a lot, of wood to cut to keep warm this winter. The trouble is that we have to do all of this in the winter months when the swamps are frozen. This hat keeps me so warm when I am out splitting wood and because of the fit, it doesn’t fall off! I hope that you enjoy this pattern.

This pattern works in any increment of 4 plus 2. For this hat in the pictures, I have used a chunky yarn with a large hook, however, the brown hat at the very bottom was done with a size G hook and Bernat medium #4 yarn.
Row 1: Begin by working a single crochet into the first stitch. Sc into each st for the row. You should have a total of 21 stitches.
Row 2: Ch 2, turn. Skip the first st. *Dc into the next 3 stitches. Dc into the st that was skipped, making sure that you pull the yarn over so that it doesn’t bunch the other 3 stitches. Skip the next st.* Repeat * instructions for the row. At the end of the row, Dc into the last st.
Row 3-17: Repeat instructions from row 2 until you have reached the desired size for your head.
When you have reach the desired length (fits comfortably around your head), ch 2 then tie off your end. Make sure that you leave a long enough tail to stitch the seam together. Fold the hat in half so that the first and last rows are together. Using your embroidery needle, stitch the seam together then tie off your work.
Using the embroidery needle and same colour of yarn, weave around the top of the hat and pull tight to close the hat. Tie off the ends and weave in.
Row 1: Attach your yarn at the seam. Hdc an even number of stitches around the bottom of the hat.
Row 2: Work a bphdc into the first st. *fphdc into the next st. Bphdc into the following st.* Repeat * instructions for the round. Slst to join your work at the end. Ch 1.
Row 3&4: Repeat instructions from row 2.
When your hat’s brim is to your desired length, simply tie off your end and weave in all loose ends.
