HAT IN THE RING

Difficulty: Intermediate Materials: TLC Cotton Plus: 3.5 oz, 100 g/ 178 yds/ 163 m 2 skeins
medium blue Crochet Hook Size H (5.00 mm), stitch markers, yarn needle, eleven 1 plastic rings

Gauge:

From center of crown outward: 7 ro = 2, On straight side: 7 st =

2 and 7 ro = 2

Measurements: 21 head size, bucket style with brim that can be turned

up or down. This hat runs slightly small.

Note: Note This entire project is made holding 2 strands of yarn together, including when you are crocheting into the rings.
Prepare 11 plastic rings by working 16 sc into each one. Fasten off. Weave one tail into back of ring. With yarn needle, join last sc to 1st sc and then with RS up, sew one ring to the next with 3 stitches. At this point, its a good idea to lay all your rings side by side. Measure from the first ring to the end of the last ring. You should have 21. If you do not, then make the stitches between the rings a bit looser as you sew them together. Weave yarn tail into back of ring. (Note: Its easier to weave your strands one at a time; a bit tedious but worth the effort.) Join last ring to first ring in the same way to form a circle.
