FiFi Hat


The stitch design of this hat is so beautiful. The picture does not do it justice. And guess what ? It is a 2 row repeat. Happy hooking!

The FiFi Hat is worked from the ribbing to the crown

The ribbing does not stretch much. It is important to make a starting chain that fits comfortably around your head

  1. ribbing band: made by alternating between fpdc and bpdc (8 rounds)
  2. body of hat: work pattern for (13 rounds)
  3. decrease for crown (6 rows)
