“Elizabeth” Crochet Hat Pattern For Child

Elizabeth hat

I made this hat for a child ages 2-4. I don’t have a gauge, but if you need it smaller use a smaller size hook.  When I first made this hat, I tried it on my 2-year-old granddaughter as I was making it.  I didn’t pay attention to gauges.

If you find an error in this pattern, please let me know.

Elizabeth Hat

Materials:
*Size I crochet hook.
4 ply worsted weight yarn in colors of your choice (I used Red Heart Super Saver).
*If you crochet very loosely, then try using a size H hook for ages/size 2-4.  Otherwise, tighten up on your stitches.

To begin: Make an adjustable ring (details here).

Rnd 1: Ch 2 (This beg ch 2 does not count as first dc. This is to avoid any unsightly spaces or gaps in rnd 1-5 or otherwise specified), 12 dc into magic ring. Sl st in top of first dc to join (12 dc).

Rnd 2: Ch 2, 2 dc in same st, 2 dc in each st around. Sl st in top of first dc to join (24 dc).

Rnd 3: Ch 2, dc in same st, *2 dc in next st, dc in next st, Repeat from * around end 2 dc in last st. Sl st in top of first dc to join (36 dc).

Rnd 4: Ch 2, dc in same st and in next st, *2 dc in next st, dc in next 2 sts, Repeat from * around end 2 dc in last st. Sl st in top of first dc to join (48 dc).

Rnd 5: Ch 2, dc in same st and in next 2 sts, *2 dc in next st, dc in next 3 sts, Repeat from * around end 2 dc in last st. Sl st in top of first dc to join (60 dc).

Rnd 6: Sl st in 1st dc, ch 5 (counts as 1st dc plus 2 chs), sk 2 dc, dc in next dc, *ch 2, sk 2 dc, dc in next dc, Repeat from * around. Sl st in 3rd ch of ch 5 to join (20-ch 2 spaces).

Rnd 7: Ch 2 (does not count as first dc), 1 dc in same sp, 2 dc in ch 2 sp, *dc in next dc, 2 dc in next ch 2 sp, Repeat from * around end 2 dc in last ch 2 sp. Sl st in first dc to join (60 dc).

Rnd 8-11:  Repeat Rnd 6 and 7.  Ending with Rnd 7 (after each Rnd you will have 20-ch 2 spaces on Rnds 8 & 10, and 60 dc on Rnds 9 & 11).

Brim:

Rnd 12 -13:  Ch 1, sc in same st and in each st around.  Sl st to 1st sc to join. (60 sc).

Rnd 14:  ch 1, sc in same st and in next 4 sts, *2 sc in next st, sc in next 5 sts, repeat from * around end 2 sc in last st.  Sl st in first sc (70 sc).

Rnd 15:  Ch 1, sc in same st and in each st around. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (70 sc).
