Pattern Notes
This pattern in written in American English terminology.
Rounds are joined with a slip stitch. You will only turn the work when specified in the pattern. You will not turn the rest of the rows.
When you “Ch 2” at the beginning of a dc row, it does not count as a dc. When you join with a sl st at the end of a row be sure to join to the top of the first dc and not to the ch-2. If you are not careful about this, you will add stitches to your rounds.
After turning, when you crochet in the same st, it will seem like you are crocheting to the right a bit. This is correct. Also make sure not to crochet in the slip stitch you used to join the previous row. If you do, you will be adding stitches to your row.
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 “Ch 2. 6 sc in second chain from hook. Join with a sl st.” instead.

Special Stitches

mb - make bobble - Yarn over and insert hook into designated stitch. Yarn over and draw a loop through the stitch. Yarn over and draw through 2 loops on the hook. You will now have 2 loops still on your hook. *Yarn over and insert hook into same stitch. Yarn over and draw a loop through the stitch. Yarn over and draw through 2 loops on the hook* 2 times. You will now have a total of four loops on the hook. Yarn over and draw through all 4 loops.

rsc - reverse single crochet - You will be crocheting from left to right when doing this stitch. It it takes a bit to get used to it. Insert hook into stitch to the right of current stitch. Yarn over and draw through stitch. Yarn over and draw through both loops on hook.

xst - cross stitch - Skip one st. Dc in next st. Dc in skipped stitch. This counts as 2 stitches.

Variations

You can make this hat longer by repeating rows 10 - 13 more times. Make sure to end on row 12 if you decide to add repeats.
You can also make this hat with aran weight yarn. The fabric will be stiffer and the hat will be a bit bulkier. The red hat is made with I Love This yarn from Hobby Lobby in #50 Cranberry.
