Gauge is given in pattern instructions. Example: (13 sts, 1¼” in diameter)

NOTES & STITCHES USED:

  • SC: Single Crochet – insert hook into stitch, YO & pull up a loop, pull through loops on hook.
  • HDC: Half-Double Crochet – YO, insert hook into stitch, YO & pull up a loop, YO, pull through all 3 loops on hook.
  • DC: Double Crochet – YO, insert hook into stitch, YO & pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, pull through remaining 2 loops on hook.
  • Sl St: Slip Stitch – insert hook, pull up loop and through 1st loop on hook.
  • Magic Ring – Check out http://youtu.be/chZReX6t0RE for a video tutorial (use hdc instead of dc)
  • JOIN: shorthand for ending each round – slip stitch in the 1st stitch of the round.
  • Beginning ch 1 does not count as a sc or hdc. Beginning ch 2 does count as a dc.
  • PAY ATTENTION to where you start your stitches in each round. On the increase (top of hat) rnds, each rnd will be begin “in same st”. For full photo tutorials, download the PDF file above.
  • Color Change:
    • Rnd 1-2: Wave Color A
    • Rnd 3: small Accent Color (this is sc row) 
    • Rnd 4-5: Wave Color B (this could also be Color A if you want only one main wave color)
    • Rnd 6: small Accent Color (sc row) 
    • Continue that pattern with 2 rows A, sc row accent, 2 rows B, sc row accent OR do your own thing!
  • To change colors: With old color work last stitch to the last two loops on your hook. YO with new color & pull through. JOIN with new color.
