Just a hat pattern I'd forgotten about...

BEV'S FAMILY HAT
(pattern by Beverly A. Qualheim - Copyright 2002 - 2009
Size H or I hook depending on how tightly you crochet.

4 Ply worsted weight yarn
Kids 2-7 (ch 36), Age 8-10 (ch 42), Age 11-14 (ch 48), teen and adult (ch 56)

ROW 1: Dc in 3rd ch from the hook and in each ch across. Ch 2. Turn.

ROWS 2-(as many rows as you need for width of head): Dc in 2nd st from hook across to end of row - in Back loops only-- to form ridge. Ch 2. Turn.

On your final row for the width -don't ch 2 at the end, just end off, leaving 18" tail.


Sew sides together.

TOP of hat - make a running st through the last row of dc, and gather tightly. Add a colorful pompom to the top to keep the top tightly shut. I run pompom tail threads under a couple of stitches and tie tightly to secure. This looks really bright and pretty if you use different colors every few rows to create colored stripes.

HUG THE ONES YOU LOVE TODAY!

Hi Bev,

I'm attempting to make your baby booties.

I'm very much new at knitting/crocheting. I'm having trouble figuring out how to do row nine. Am I joining the bootie together before I continue with the top? If not, how do I sl st 5?

Thank you in advance!

Glad you making those booties. You are not joining it. You just slip stitch into those first 5 sts. It's like this pattern:
