The Green One-crocheted hat

I love to design and create things (it's my form of playing), and I have been wanting to write a blog  to share my projects for quite a while.  So, with that being said, here goes project number one!

I wish I could tell you what weight of yarn I've used here but the truth is I bought this with no label on it.  I'm guessing its a thin worsted weight.  After you have crocheted 4 rounds, fold in half, and it should measure 1 5/8" from crown to bottom.

Use G hook.

Chain 4.  Join with slip st.
R1.  ch3, 11 dc in ring.  Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3.  (12 dc)
R2.  ch3, dc in same st.  2dc in each st around.  Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3.  (24 dc)
R3.  ch3, 2dc in next st, *1dc in next st, 2dc in next st*, repeat around.  Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3.
R4.  ch3, 1dc in next st, 2dc in next st, *1dc in next 2 st's, 2dc in next st*, repeat around. Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3.
R5.  ch3, 1dc in next 2 st's, 2dc in next st, *1dc in next 3 st's, 2dc in next st*, repeat around.  Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3.
R6.  ch3, 1dc in next 3 st's, 2 dc in next st, *1dc in next 4st's, 2 dc in next st*, repeat around.  Join with sl st to top of beginning ch3.
