Stocking Cap

Lion Brand® Jiffy®

GAUGE:

10 single crochet = 4 inches (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

NOTES:

Slip stitch last single crochet of each round to the first and chain 1. Do not turn. Mark first stitch of each round with stitch marker, safety pin, or strand of contrasting yarn. Move marker at beginning of each round.

Round 10

Repeat Round 10 until Hat measures 5½ (6, 7) inches from beginning. Do not end off.

RIBBING

Note Ribbing is attached to Crown every other row as you work.

With smaller hook, chain 9. Single crochet into 2nd chain from hook and each chain across – 8 single crochet. Insert hook into next stitch (on Crown) and pull up loop (2 loops on hook), insert hook into following Crown stitch, pull up loop and draw through loops on hook (double slip stitch).

Next Row Chain 1, turn. Single crochet into back loop of each single crochet across rib.

Next Row Chain 1, turn. Single crochet into back loop of each single crochet across; double slip stitch next 2 Crown stitches.

Repeat these two rows until you have worked all around the Hat and then slip stitch first and last rows together for seam. Weave in ends.

POMPOM

Cut a piece of cardboard 2½" x 3 inches. Wrap the yarn around the 2½" width; the more times you wrap, the fuller your pompom will be. Cut yarn, leaving an 18 inches end. Slide pompom off cardboard carefully and wrap end around middle, securing it lightly. Clip through loops on both ends. Sew pompom to top of hat.

Stocking Cap Reviewed by Lilly on 2009-09-09 ****
I had to pull my first attempt apart because it didn't look like the finished product AT ALL! I worked a row of even single crochets in between each increase row, and the divided the length from center in half to know how much longer it was recommended to be. It was for a child, so I didn't want it too long. For an adult I would try how 2 even rows in between each increase row would look. Also use a lighter yarn to give it that droopy look.
