Christmas hat


This can be made without the pom pom on top. If making the pom pom, follow these instructions. I like to make the pom pom first so I know I have enough yarn for it. The remaining yarn determines how long the hat is. With Worsted weight Christmas yarn or color of choice and G hook, 6 sc in magic circle, pull tight. Do not join or turn throughout. If you prefer not to use the magic circle, ch 4, join with sl st. ch 1 (counts as 1st stitch) 5 sc in ring. 2. *sc in back loop, sc in front loop around (12 sc) 3.*sc in back loop, (sc in front loop, sc in back loop of same stitch) sc in front loop, (sc in back loop, sc in front loop of same stitch) 3 times (18 sc) 4. *sc in back loop, sc in front loop (sc back loop, sc front loop same stitch)6 times (24 sc 5. *sc back loop, sc front loop, sc back loop (sc front loop, sc back loop same stitch) sc front loop, sc back loop, sc front loop (sc back loop, sc front loop same stitch) 3 times (30 sc) 6. *sc back loop, sc front loop (2 times), (sc back loop, sc front loop in same stitch) 6 times (36 sc) 7. * (sc back loop, sc front loop) 2 times, sc back loop ( sc front loop, sc back loop in same stitch), (sc front loop, sc back loop) 2 times, sc front loop (sc back loop, sc front loop in same stitch) 3 times ( 42 sc 8. *(sc back loop, sc front loop)3 times (sc back loop, sc front loop same stitch) 6 times (48 sc 9. * (sc back loop, sc front loop) 3 times sc back loop, (sc front loop, sc back loop same stitch) (sc front loop, sc back loop)( 3 times, sc front loop, (sc back loop, sc front loop same stitch) 3 tiems (54 sc) 10. * (sc back loop, sc front loop) 4 times (sc back loop, sc front loop same stitch) 6 times ( 60 sc) 11. *(sc back loop, sc front loop) 4 times, sc back loop (sc front loop, sc back loop same stitch), (sc front loop, sc back loop) 4 times, sc front loop, (sc back loop, sc front loop same stitch) 3 times (66 sc) 12. *(sc back loop, sc front loop) 5 times (sc back loop, sc front loop same stitch) 6 times (72 sc) 13. *(sc back loop, sc front loop) 5 times, sc back loop (sc front loop, sc back loop same stitch), (sc front loop, sc back loop) 5 times, sc front loop, (sc back loop, sc front loop same stitch) 3 times (78 sc) repeat back loop, front loop alternations till hat is desired length. sl st next 2 stitches, fasten off. I used a 3 oz skein and used the whole thing. I thought about making it a slouchy hat instead of a regular fitting one, but put the fuzzy ball on top.
