Knit-like Crochet Ribbing Stitches:

yo-slst: Yarn Over Slip Stitch : 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!

yo-slst-blo: yarn over slip stitch back loops only: work the stitch as described above, but inserting the hook only into the back loops of the stitches.


INSTRUCTIONS:
(A picture tutorial is shown for the adult size at the end of the post)

RIBBED BAND: 
The ribbing pattern is written for toddler size with changes in parenthesis for child and adult size.

Chain 7(8, 9).

Row 1: Working entire row into back bump of chains, crochet 1 yo-slst into 2nd ch from hook and 1 yo-slst into each ch across; ch 1, turn.
( Total: 6 sts for toddler size, 7 sts child size, 8 sts adult size)

Row 2: yo-slst blo in each of next 5 sts (6 sts, 7 sts), 1 yo-sl st using both top loops of the last st.

(Total: 6 sts, 7 sts, 8 sts)

Notes:
To avoid loops at the edge, the last stitch of each row will be worked using both top loops.

Repeat as row 2 until you have: 
  • 33 ribs for toddler size
  • 36 ribs for child size 
  • 39 ribs for adult size (Shown below)

Do not cut yarn! Continue with the Seam!

SEAM: Fold the piece into half, hold Row 1 edge above the last row edge. Chain 1 and slip stitch the short sides together inserting the hook through the back loops of the stitches on both sides; ch1 and turn the piece inside out, so that the seam will be hidden on the wrong side. 
 
Note: Join the edges in a way that will make the V-like rib stitches to stay up after turning the piece inside out.

Continue working the Body of Hat on the right side.
From here the pattern is written individually for each size!
TODDLER SIZE:

 ( See the picture tutorial for the adult size at the end of the post!) 

BODY OF HAT:
Work in the round around the edge:

Round 1: ch1, work around the edge 66 yo-slsts evenly placed ( working one st into each rib st and one st into each “valley” st on the edge); join into round with slst to top of first yo-slst.

Place 6 stitch markers or yarn pieces into each 11. St around. 

Placing stitch markers will help when working the cable pattern to not work into marked stitches 2 times! You will understand what I mean while you work!

Round 2 ( see note below): ch2, *work 1 bpdc around each of next 3 sts, sk next 2 sts, work 1 fptr around each of next 2 sts, going behind the 2 fptr just made, work 1 dc into each of 2 skipped sts, sk next 2 sts, work 1 dc into each of next 2 sts (NOTE: the 2nd dc st will be worked into the marked st! When working the next repeat do not work the next bpdc into the marked st! )going in front of the 2 dc sts just made, work 1 fptr around each of 2 skipped sts* , repeat from *to * around 6 times, slst to top of first bpdc.

(66 sts. You should have 6 cables x 8 sts + 6 spaces between cables x 3 sts)

Note: Beginning with round 2, you will "hide" the starting ch2, by working the 1st bpdc inserting the hook  under and at the right of the ch2, so that to catch it.


You can now remove the st markers.

Round 3: ch2, *work 1bpdc around each of next 3 bpdc, work 1 fpdc around each of 8 sts of next cable*, repeat from *to * around, slst to top of first bpdc. (66 sts)

Round 4: ch2, *work 1bpdc around each of next 3 bpdc, sk next 2 fpdc, work 1 fptr around each of next 2 fpdc; going behind the 2 fptr just made, work 1 dc into each of the 2 skipped fpdc, sk next 2 fpdc, work 1 dc into each of next 2 fpdc; going in front of the 2 dc just made, work 1 fptr around each of the 2 skipped fpdc, repeat from * around, sl st to top of first bpdc of round. (66 sts)
