Crochet, project 212. Completed 12/16/2009
Adapted from Double-Double Crochet Hat by Kathy North (link)
Fits 22-inch head nicely; 6.75″ tall
Yarn: 2.4 oz (138 yds) of worsted weight yarn
1 skein Plymouth Encore Worsted (75% acrylic, 25% wool), 200 yd per 100 g/3.5 oz skein.
• Color #217, Black
Crochet Hook: US Size K-10.5 (6.5 mm) crochet hook
Doesn’t matter for a top-down hat, but (10 sts or 5.5 rounds = 4″): 2.5 DC per inch
Third time I’ve used this pattern; it’s that good. Yarn is held double throughout. Follow pattern, and work 11 rounds total.
