Grand-daughter and Hat for Warming Families Hat Challenge



I am going to be grandma to a little girl in December as my eldest and his wife are expecting a little sister for Jackson! Not sure of the date yet. I am so happy for them. I love babies so much. :)



**************************************************************************************************************
Ok- this is a nice warm hat pattern for teens and adults. It's one I starting making hats from a long time ago. Not even sure this pattern is 100% accurate, but let's try it! I will post a photo and /or corrections if necessary, when I get this hat made up with the Land's End yarn. (EDITED TO ADD PHOTO!)

Rnd 6 - 20:
ch 3 and dc in same st, FPDC in ea dc around - including that VERY last FPDC there-- it increases the hat by one stitch each time around (you could also join in the first FPDC and NOT work into that very last FPDC for a straight up and down look but the hat will be a bit smaller),
