E's Heart

Here's a Freebie for Valentine's Day. Only pre-requisite is you need one yarn bulkier than the other so your bottom heart will be seen
MATERIALS USED
Worsted Weight Yarn
   Color A: - Vanna’s Choice - Scarlett
   Color B: Red Heart Buttercup - White
Crochet Hook – G/6 -4.25M
Tapestry/Yarn Needle
Scissors

GAUGE: Not Important, this pattern uses the size  chart 
at the end of the pattern to achieve the size hat you desire.





ABBREVIATIONS:
ch - chain                                              rnd(s) - rounds(s)
dc - double crochet                                 sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet                         st(s) - stitch(es)
MC - Magic Circle                                   trc - treble crochet


NOTES FOR HAT
1.      This hat can be made for any size from a preemie to an adult male. You will need to 
       make your crown the circumference and height specific for the person.
2.      Check the chart at the bottom of the pattern for the circumferences
      and heights for different ages of individuals. Then, fill in the information you need below.
a.      _____ Circumference of Head
b.      _____ Circumference For Hat
c.       _____ Height of Hat
3.      To make measuring the hat easier:
a.      cut a piece of yarn in one color the length of the circumference of the hat.
b.      Cut another piece of yarn, in a different color, the length of the height you need.
4.      HINT: To get a GREAT size match, use Styrofoam balls with the circumference of the head you want to fit. This works SO MUCH BETTER than measuring in inches.

NOTE
1.      If circumference of hat is reached before Rnd 9, skip to body of hat and continue form there.
2.      If you need a circumference of the hat has not been reached by Rnd 6, continue the pattern, established in Rnds 4 – 9, until you have reached the circumference you need,
3.      The body of your hat will continue the pattern, except you will not continue with the increasing in each round.
4.      Place a stitch marker, or a piece of a nother color of yarn, at the beginning of the body to make the counting of rnds easier.
