Simple Tweed Hat
Lion Brand« Heartland
11 sc = about 4 in. (10 cm).
BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
HAT Ch 26. Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across - 25 sc. Row 2: Ch 1, turn, working in back loops only, sc in each sc across. Repeat Row 2 until piece measures about 19 in. (48.5 cm) from beginning. Fasten off, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread yarn tail through ends of rows along one long edge and pull to gather for top of Hat. Knot securely.
FINISHING Seam short sides of piece to make Hat. Weave in ends.

I did not have very good luck with this pattern. The stitching up part was what gave me trouble. Also, the bottom of mine doesn't look finished like the example. I plan to fiddle with the hat more to see if I can make it look a little nicer.
