Adult Hat with Ribbed Brim

                                      Dedicated to "ALL" of our Q-family,
                Ron, Rhonda, Ronnie & Lance as well as "ALL" our Grandchildren.

This is another of my old (1989/90) patterns. It's truly easy and works up quickly.
I Pray your family is Blessed by it as ours has been over the years...

I Hook


These stitches are done with hdc, by working around the post of each stitch in the row below. Here's how:

Front Post Stitch: yo (yarn over) your hook; starting from the front, place hook from front to back to front around the post of st (stitch) in row below; complete as a hdc (half double crochet).

And the back post stitch is just an opposite of that ...

Back Post Stitch: yo, starting from the back, place hook from back to front to back around post of st in row below; complete as a hdc.


Ch 5, join with sl st to form a ring

Row 1) ch 2, work 11 hdc in ring (12 hdc)

Row 2) ch 2, hdc in same st as ch 2, 2 hdc in each st around (24 hdc)

Row 3) Ch 2, *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next st *Repeat Around (36 hdc)

Row 4) ch 2, * hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in next st. *Repeat around (48 hdc)

Row 5) ch 2, * hdc in next 3 sts, 2 hdc in next st. *repeat around. (60 hdc )

Row 6) ch 2, * hdc in next 4 sts, 2 hdc in next st. * Repeat around. (72 hdc)

{If your count is different then 72 sts, continue with increase until you have 72 sts}

Row 7 - 19) ch 2, hdc in each st around, attach to top of ch 2. Do NOT Fasten off after Row 19
Row 20: ch 2, {fphdc in next st, bphdc in next) around. Join with sl st to top of ch 2.

Rows 21-25) Repeat row 20. At end of Row 25, fasten off.

I change colors for a different colored brim after row 17 and then continue with pattern as written above.

For larger hats, use larger hook, for wider brim, add a few extra rows of Row 20, for smaller hat use smaller hood

If your Blessed by this pattern, please consider making some hats and sharing with someone less fortunate then you are and whom will be Blessed by your Handwork & Love
