Joyce's "Christmas Present" Hat

I can't use the real name of this pattern or it will give away who I am giving this to as a gift. *(Edited 4/10/2010 to rename.)*

So, you will just have to believe that the pattern is the same one that made the hat modeled by Indy.

I know I I may have the wrong number of stitches in Rows 12 - 14. I was working so fast that I missed some stitches where I was to put 2 dc's. So, you may not totally agree with my counts, but your hat will still turn out fine.


As a matter of fact, I can miscount my stitches, also, when an item is made. But as long as you follow the directions, like I said above, you will come out just fine.

    1. Yes, this hat is human size. My neighbor across the street, and her husband, both coud wear it. I have a 24" head, I would need to add a round or two after round 4 to make it big enough for my head.
