GAUGE:

10 dc + 5 rows = 4 in. (10 cm).

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. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

TECHNIQUE EXPLANATION
Surface Slip Stitch

1. Make a slip knot, but do not place it on hook.
2. Insert hook from RS to WS through crochet fabric.
3. Place the slip knot on hook and draw loop to RS (keep beg tail and working yarn on WS).
4. *Insert hook from RS to WS through fabric a short distance from last insertion location, yarn over, draw loop through fabric and through loop on hook (surface sl st made); rep from * inserting hook, as desired, to create surface pattern.
5. Fasten off.
Note: To end a section of surface sl sts. Remove hook from loop and take hook to WS. Insert hook from WS to RS, place loop on hook, draw loop through to WS. Cut yarn and draw yarn tail through final loop and pull tight.

NOTES:

1. Hat is worked in rnds beg at lower edge.
2. Rnds 1-10 are worked in joined rnds with RS facing at all times, do not turn.
3. Rnds 11-14 are worked in continuous rnds (spiral). Do not join and do not turn.
4. If you find it difficult to join the beg ch into a ring without twisting the ch, Rnd 1 can be worked as a row, then joined into a rnd, as follows: Leaving a long beg tail, ch 52, dc in 6th ch from hook (beg ch counts as 1 foundation ch, dc, ch 1), *ch 1, sk next ch, dc in next ch; rep from * to last ch, ch 1, sk last ch; join with sl st in 5th ch of beg ch - 25 dc and 25 ch-1 sps at the end of this rnd. Use beg tail to sew last ch of beg ch to 3rd ch of beg ch. Proceed to Rnd 2.
5. Surface Sl St spirals are worked over ch-1 sps of A- and B-Colored Sections after Hat is complete. Refer to photograph or diagram for placement of surface sl sts over the ch-1 sps.

Rnd 1 (RS): Ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1 in this rnd and in all following rnds), sk next ch, working in back loops only, *dc in next ch, ch 1, sk next ch; rep from * around; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch - 25 dc and 25 ch-1 sps at the end of this rnd.
Rnds 2-5: Ch 4, sk first ch-1 sp, working in back loops only, *dc in next dc, ch 1, sk next ch-1 sp; rep from * around; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch.

Rnd 6 (RS): From RS, draw up a loop of B in back loop of same st as joining, ch 4, sk first ch-1 sp, working in back loops only, *dc in next dc, ch 1, sk next ch-1 sp; rep from * around; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch.

Place marker for beg of rnd. Move marker up as each rnd is completed.

Refer to photograph or Surface Sl St Spiral diagram. With B, work a surface sl st spiral over a 5 x 5 grid of ch-1 sps of the A-colored section. With C, work a surface sl st spiral over next 5 x 5 grid of ch-1 sps. Continue to work spirals, alternating B and C over the next two 5 x 5 grids of ch-1 sps on the A-colored section. There should be one 5 x 5 grid of ch-1 sps left unworked for zigzag.
With A, work a surface sl st spiral over 5 x 5 grid of ch-1 sps of the B-colored section, directly above first B-colored spiral. With C, work a surface sl st spiral over next 5 x 5 grid of ch-1 sps. Continue to work spirals, alternating A and C over the next two 5 x 5 grids of ch-1 sps. There should be one 5 x 5 grid of ch-1 sps left unworked above the previous unworked 5 x 5 grid.


Surface Sl St Zigzag


 

Refer to photograph or Surface Sl St Zigzag diagram. With C, work surface sl st zig zag over the unworked 5 x 5 grids of ch-1 sps as follows: Work a row of 4 surface sl sts from right to left across first row of 5 ch-1 sps of A-colored section, *work 1 surface sl st vertically to reach next row of ch-1 sps, work another row of surface sl sts across next row, working in the opposite direction; rep from * until a row of surface sl sts have been worked across the last row ch-1 sps of B-colored section.
