9 sts = 5” in dc

sc - single crochet

Notes
This pattern in written in American English terminology.
Rounds are joined with a slip stitch. Do not turn.
Instructions in *stars* are repeated the number of times indicated after the second *.
If you are not familiar with the magic loop, here is a good tutorial to learn the technique http://www.crochetme.com/forums/t/28917.aspx If you are still not comfortable with the technique you can chain 4 and join with a slip stitch instead.
Ch 2 at the beginning of a row does not count as a dc. I find that using a ch 2 and then dc in the same stitch keeps from getting the little gaps that often show at joins. Make sure to join to the top of the dc and not the 2nd ch of the ch 2 or you will be adding extra sts. If you do not like this technique, feel free to use a ch 2 or ch 3 as your first st and then finish the row as normal.

  2. You have two different yarn weights listed... On your blog, you say to use super bulky yarn, but in the .pdf, you say to use worsted weight. So which weight did you write the pattern for?

    1. Oops! Sorry about that! It is definitely for super bulky yarn. I copy and paste the parts of the pattern to keep the formatting consistant and I forgot to change the yarn weight. I will edit and repost it. Thanks for the heads up and happy crafting!

  3. Great pattern! I got some Lion Brand Homespun yarn for Christmas and I had no idea what to do with it! My brother saw it and requested a hat. I tried out all my patterns for beanies and none of them would fit his big head! Haha I am even gonna have to add an extra increasing round to this beanie! Thanks for the pattern! :)
