The Edgewater Hat uses the same great stitch combo as the Edgewater Sweater Dress to create an amazingly textured hat! It’s a simple and fast project using a light worsted weight yarn of your choice! I used my current favorite, Lion Brand Yarn Jeans yarn. The pattern comes in infant sizes through adult sizes, so you can make one for every member of the family!
- 135-165 yards worsted weight yarn
- I (5.5mm) crochet hook or hook to obtain gauge
- Measuring tape
- Tapestry needle
- Pom pom (optional)
- Brim – 9 sts x 7 rows = 2”
- Body – 7 dc = 2”
- Infant – 17-18” head circumference
- Toddler – 18-20”
- Child – 20-21”
- Adult – 21-22”
Starting chain does not count as first st unless stated otherwise within the pattern.
When decreasing work your stitches into the same loop as the round below you. (blo into blo, flo into flo) Do this for all of your stitches.
Pattern is worked in infant sizes with additional sizes in parentheses as follows: Infant (Toddler, Child, Adult). Final stitch counts will be at the end of each row/round for all sizes.
