  2. 2. <ul><li>Measure the circumference of the head. </li></ul><ul><li>If the hat is for a gift you might like to consult the excellent chart produced here… http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/size-chart.html </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Measure the height of the head … from eyebrows to crown. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t worry too much about this as you can always fold a cuff on the hat. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Chain so that the length of the chain = the circumference of the head. </li></ul><ul><li>Each time I have made these hats I have measured the chain at full stretch for a snug fit. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Begin crocheting your “aida canvas”. Just double crochet back & forth until the length of the fabric = the height of the head </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Fold the fabric in half so that the short sides meet. </li></ul><ul><li>Slip stitch to seam. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Measure the width of the folded & seamed fabric (now a cylinder). </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Divide the width of the opening by 4 & mark that distance from each end of the folded cylinder. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Double crochet from the side in to your mark. </li></ul><ul><li>Repeat for the other side. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Push your two small seams in to meet in the centre. This makes the cross on top of the hat. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Double crochet all the way across this seam. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Now bring two of the points in to meet each other… </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>… & tie together. You might like to reinforce this with a couple of stitches. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Repeat for the other side. </li></ul><ul><li>Weave in your ends. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Turn your hat in the right way. </li></ul><ul><li>It should look something like this. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Now cross stitch your design into the “aida” you’ve created. </li></ul>
