Hats to help kids!

Hi everyone!!  Happy Friday!

Here is a simple hat pattern that would be a good size to make for the kids:
-----
Bev's Basic Hodge-Podge Beanie  copyright Bev Qualheim 2011


Bev's Basic Hodge-Podge Beanie  copyright Bev Qualheim 2011 Brimless beanie hat In 5 sizes - Babies, Elementary school kids, Teens/small woman, Women's, Mens.
Crochet Hook size G or H  (
If you crochet tightly use an I or J hook.)
3 oz worsted weight yarn - use one color, or use a hodge-podge of colors, joining whenever you run out if yarn! Looks so cool!

Gauge: 7  hdc = 2"   6 rows= 2"

This is a great way to use up your yarn stash.  I recommend using a single type of yarn.You want these to be nice and warm.  You can also make them with a strand of worsted weight held with a strand of sock yarn. There are many homeless, or those who don't have adequate warmth, and these beanies are needed by the dozens in every city!


Chain 4, join with sl st to form a ring, Ch 2.
Rnd 1: 10 hdc in ring, join with a sl st to the top of the first hdc (not the ch 2)

Rnd 2: 2 hdc in each hdc, join with sl st. Ch 2 (20 hdc)

Rnd 8:

In the Basic Hodge-Podge Beanie pattern rows 3-8 say 'in base of the ch 3 of the previous row'. No ch3 is done in a previous row so shouldn't the pattern say 'in base of the ch 2 of the previous row' instead?
