Megan’s Hat

So, I’m still making Christmas presents>.< I was quite behind this year!

Today I whipped up a hat for my friend Megan..still need to do her husband Mark’s hat!

I really like how this came out! I’m gonna make myself one and play around with the post stitches some more.  See how much I can get them to twist! If  I get the patience I’ll probably do this in a blanket too.

And because of the K hook this works up really fast! hooray!

K hook

H hook

WW yarn-I used some hot pink red heart


With k, 10 dc into magic loop.

Round 1: Ch 2, 2 dc in each st around. Join to first dc. 20 sts

Round 2: ch 2, dc in first st, *2 dc in next st, fpdc around next* around. 30 sts

Round 3: Ch 2, *dc in first 2 dc, fptrc around previous fpdc, dc in top of fpdc* repeat *to* around to end, 2 dc in last st. 40 sts

Round 4: Ch 2, *dc in first st, fptrc around previous fptrc, dc in top of fptrc, 2 dc in next st*repeat *to* around to last st, 2 dc in last st. 50 sts

Round 5: Ch 2, *fptrc around previous fptrc, dc in top of fptrc, dc in next 2 sts, 2 dc in next st* repeat *to* around to last 4 sts, dc in last 3 sts, fptrc in first fptrc- there will be no more joining after this, and rounds will be worked in a spiral until brim. Dc in last skipped dc, dc in top of fptrc. Place marker in this dc. 60 sts

Rounds 6- 10: *dc to 1 st before fptrc, fptrc around previous fptrc, dc in top of fptrc.* Repeat *to * around to marker.
