Mask in a Hat - Free Pattern

Mask In A Hat - Free Pattern
This is a teen/adult sized hat.
If you need a small to medium sized hat, use a size G hook. 
If you need a bigger hat, use a size H or I hook.  But beware, the I hook makes a really large hat.

Caron's Simply Soft yarn
size G Crochet Hook

This hat is worked in one rectangle piece then folded in half and sewn together.  To adjust the size of this hat, measure around your head with a tape measure.  Divide that number in half.  This is how wide you should make the rectangle.  Mine is 11 inches wide for the largest size hat.  Try to make it a bit less than the width you need though as it will stretch.  As for the length of the rectangle, I made mine about 16 inches long.  You can make it shorter by crocheting less rows.

ch 43.
1- dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across. 
2- ch 4, turn.  tr in next 9 dc, ch 8, sk 8 sts, tr in next 5 dc, ch 8, sk 8 sts, tr in next 9 dc and in the 3rd ch of the ch 3.  (NOTE: You may work this row in dc if you wish.  I wear glasses so I used tr to allow for them.)
3- ch 3, turn.  dc in each tr and ch across and in the 4th ch of the ch 4.
4 thru 28- ch 3, turn.  dc in each dc across.  at the end of row 28, finish off.
**At this point, you may add a row of sc or hdc around the bottom edge of the hat if you like.  I'm adding one to mine to make it cover more of my nose.**

Fold the rectangle in half (with wrong side facing out).  Sew the sides of the rectangle together.  Weave in all ends.  Turn the hat right side out.  

I hope you enjoy my free pattern.  Please be kind and give credit where credit is due.  Do not claim ownership of the pattern.  Please link back here.  Thanks!
