Sparkle Ruby Hat

Don't lose this pattern! 

The pattern for this hat is very similar to the matching cowl, with only a few changes.
Same as the cowl, the hat is worked sideways in rows.

The height of the hat will be determined by the length of the foundation chain; 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: single crochet and slip stitch.
 And there are only 2 rows to repeat! 

 Gauge: 4 pattern repeats (the zig-zag pattern worked with dtr) in the row = approx. 10 cm (4”)

Size: The hat is sized to fit an adult women.
You can adjust the circumference of the hat by making more rows for a larger hat, or fewer rows for a smaller hat.
Hat height: 21 cm
If you would like a longer slouch, add more sts multiple of 4.

Materials used:
- 1 skein of Red Heart Sparkle Soft, colorway “Really Red” (yarn weight worsted 4)
- 5.5 mm crochet hook (shown here Furls Wooden Hook, Cocobolo)
- yarn needle
- scissors

Stitches, Terms (US) and Abbreviations used:
- ch: chain
- sl st : slip stitch
- sl st blo: slip stitch back loop only (Video Tutorial by Yarn Obsession)
- sc: single crochet
- sc blo: single crochet back loop only (Video Tutorial by Kim Guzman)
- hdc: half double crochet
- dc: double crochet
- sk: skip
- yo: yarn over
- st: stitch
- [.....] = repeat the sequence of stitches between the brackets the number of times indicated in the pattern

Special Stitches:
dtr: double treble crochet= yo 3 times, insert hook in the st indicated, yo, draw loop through, [yo, draw through 2 loops on hook] 4 times.  Watch this Video Tutorial on Annie’s.

Hdc in 3rd loop at front: work the hdc stitches as usual, the only difference is that you will insert the hook not into the 2 top loops of the stitches, but into the loop under the front loop!
Watch this Video Tutorial by Maggie’s Crochet

The hdc in 3rd loop at the front will be used to create the ribbing.


(Please check out the Sparkle Ruby Cowl pattern for the step by step photo tutorial of the main stitch pattern!)

Chain 34.
Row 1 (right side of work) : 1hdc in 2sc ch from hook and 1 hdc in each of next 4 ch, [sk next 3ch, 1dtr in next ch, work behind the dtr just made 1dc in each of the 3 skipped chains] 6 times, 1 sc in each of next 2 ch, 1 sl st (worked loose) in each of next 2 ch.

Row 2 (wrong side): ch1, turn,1 sl st blo (worked loose) in each of next 2 sl sts, 1 sc blo in each of next 2 sc, [sk next 3 dc, 1dtr in next st, work in front of the dtr just made 1dc in each of the 3 skipped dc] 6 times, 1hdc in 3rd loop at front of each of next 4 hdc, ending with 1 hdc in top of last hdc.
(Using both top loops of last hdc st will prevent having holes at the edge).

Row 3 (right side of work) : ch1, turn, 1hdc in 3rd loop at front in each of next 5 hdc, [sk next 3 dc, 1dtr in next st, work behind the dtr just made 1dc in each of the 3 skipped dc] 6 times, 1 sc blo in each of next 2 sc, 1 sl st blo (worked loose)
in each of next 2 sl sts.

Rows 4 - 40: Repeat rows 2 and 3, being careful always on the right side to work behind the dtr and on the wrong side in front of the dtr.
The last row will be worked on the wrong side (as row 2), so that when joined together, the first and last row of the cowl will create a zig- zag stitch (or V when turned 180°).

Joining the short edges of the hat to form a tube:
Turn the piece on the wrong side and fold it in half, so that the foundation chain meets the last row.
Chain 1. Slip stitch the side together this way: Insert the hook through the first chain of the foundation chain and through the front loop of corresponding st on the other side. Yarn over and draw through all loops on hook. Continue the same way along the side.
Fasten off. Cut yarn leaving a long tail of yarn that will be used to close the top of the hat.

Closing the top of the hat:
Continue on the wrong side. Thread a tapestry needle with the long yarn tail you left; weave in and out around the hole on top of the hat. Pull yarn tail very tight to close the hole. To secure, weave the yarn through a few times. Cut yarn, fasten off and weave in the ends.
