'Famous Designer' Hat

Lion Brand Lion® Suede

GAUGE:

2 shells + 3 rows = 2 inches [5 cm] over Shell pattern (Rnds 8-10) 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:

The shaping of this hat seems unusual but will ultimately make hat as photographed.

Rnds 1-5 and Rnd 11 are increase rnds. Shells made in Rnds 3-5 and Rnd 11 will not be perfectly staggered, in order to accommodate increases.

In Rnds 5-10, shells will always be made in sc of previous rnd and scs will always be in center dc of shell in previous rnd.

HAT
Starting at top with A, ch 3. Join with slip st to form ring.

Rnd 1 Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 11 dc in ring, join with slip st in top of beg ch – 12 dc.

Rnd 2 Ch 3, dc in same st, 2 dc in each dc around, join with slip st in top of beg ch – 24 sts.

Rnd 3 Ch 1, sc in first 2 dc, [skip 2 dc, 7 dc in sp between last skipped dc and next dc (shell made), skip 2 dc, sc in next dc] around, end change to B and join with slip st in top of beg sc – 4 shells.

NOTE From this point on, work in BACK LOOPS ONLY unless otherwise noted.
Rnd 4 Ch 1, sc in first sc, [skip 2 sts, 7 dc in next st, skip 2 sts, sc in next st] around, join with slip st in top of beg sc – 6 shells. Fasten off B.
Rnd 5 With A, repeat Rnd 4, this time ending last repeat with shell; join with slip st in top of beg sc. Fasten off A – 8 shells.
Rnd 6 Join and draw up B in back loop of 4th dc of next shell, *ch 1, sc in same sp, [skip 3 dc, 7 dc in next sc**, skip 3 dc, sc in back loop of next dc] around, ending at **.  Join with slip st in top of beg sc. Fasten off B – 8 shells.
Rnd 7 Join A and work from * and end at ** of Rnd 6. Skip 3 dc, join with slip st in top of beg sc, fasten off – 8 shells.
Rnds 8-10
Repeat Rnd 7, alternating A and B every rnd.
Rnd 11 Join A in back loop of 4th dc of next shell, *ch 1, sc in same sp, [skip 2 sts, 7 dc in back loop of next st, skip 2 sts**, sc in back loop of next st] around, ending at **. Join with slip st in top of beg sc, fasten off – 11 shells.
Rnd 12 With B, repeat Rnd 7 – 11 shells. Fasten off.

FINISHING
With A, work from beg through Rnd 2.
Next Rnd
Ch 1, sc in first dc, 2 sc in next dc, [sc in next dc, 2 sc in next dc] around, ending slip st to join in top of first sc. Fasten off.

Sew inside at top center to create a stiffer crown.

'Famous Designer' Hat Reviewed by Lynne Budnick on 2012-03-30 ****
I made this hat in one color of Lion Suede-canyon for a chemo caps project. I found the directions confusing,but I was able to crochet the hat correctly with a few redo's. What is up with the finishing details? I ommitted,due to fact that the first part of the directions made no sense at all!. Hat looks fine without the finishing. Also,I have a stash of suede,love this yarn,but you might suggest an alternate yarn because the yarn is discontinued.
