Note: do not join rounds unless directed, work in continuous rounds.
1-Ch 2, work a sc, hdc, and 10 dc in second ch from hook
2- work 2 dc in each st around (24)
3- *work 1 dc in next st, and 2 dc (increase) in next, repeat from* around (36)
4- *work 2 dc in next 2 st, and 2 dc in next, repeat from* around (48)
5- *work 3 dc in next 2 st, and 2 dc in next, repeat from* around (60)
6- *work 4 dc in next 2 st, and 2 dc in next, repeat from* around (72)
7-19 dc in each st around (72)
20- dc in 54 st, hdc in next st, sc in next st, sl st in next (this is the end of this row) 57
21- ch 1, sc in same st as sl st from row 20, and sc around all the stitches, when you get back around to the first sc, join the round with a sl st. (72)
22-24 ch 1 sc around, join with a sl st (72)
25- ch 1, sc around, join with a sl st and then fasten off. Work in ends.
Too make this smaller for a younger child, omit row 5, or switch to smaller hook for rnds 21-25. To make it for a larger head (LIKE MINE!) work about 6 increases evenly spaced in round 7 before continuing with pattern. then on row 20 you will work 60 dc's instead of 54.
