Go with the Flow Hat 


This hat pattern is not very hard to crochet, you will only have 4 rows repeats, but before you start working on the hat, be sure to understand how to crochet the special stitches used. 

Same as my Sparkle Ruby Slouch, this hat is worked sideways in rows, back and forth, then seamed together at the back with an almost invisible seam. 
The height of the hat will be determined by the length of the foundation chain and the hat circumference will be given by the number of rows. You will not need to make any increases or decreases, the hat crown will be formed with the help of the shorter stitches: sc and sl st worked into the back loops. 





Materials used:
- 1 skein of Red Heart Chunky Soft, colorway “Seafoam” (yarn weight: bulky 5)
- 8 mm crochet hook
- yarn needle
- scissors

Many thanks to Red Heart Yarns for sponsoring the yarn used for this pattern! 


Gauge: 10 sc = 10 cm or 4 inches

Size:
The hat is sized to fit adult women.
           Hat height: 23 cm

Stitches, Terms (US) and Abbreviations used: 
- ch: chain
- back bump of chains. Click here for my picture tutorial.
- sc: single crochet
- sc blo: single crochet back loop only
- hdc: half double crochet
- dc: double crochet
- st: stitch

Special Stitches:
1) Yarn Over Slip Stitch (yo-slst): Yarn over (yo) and insert the hook into 2nd chain from hook; yarn over and draw the yarn through the chain (You have now 3 loops on the hook). Having the 3 loops on hook, pull/slip the first loop on hook through the next 2 loops on hook to complete a Yarn Over Slip Stitch (yo-slst). Click here for my PICTURE TUTORIAL!

2) Yarn Over Slip Stitch Back Loops Only (yo-slst-blo): work the stitch as described above, but inserting the hook only into the back loops of the stitches. 

3) Back Cross Double Crochet (bcr-dc): sk 1 st, work 1 dc into the next st, 1 dc back into skipped st going behind the last dc just made, so as not to catch it.

4) Back Cross Half Double Crochet (bcr-hdc): sk 1 st, work 1 hdc into the next st, 1 hdc back into skipped st going behind the last hdc just made, so as not to catch it.

Thread a yarn needle with the long tail you left at the beginning of the foundation chain; sew the edges together inserting the needle through the front loops of last row and unused loops of foundation ch.
