This super-warm, seamless hat is worked in a top-down spiral, using a double-ended Tunisian crochet hook, also known as a cro-hook. It features a convertible brim that can be flipped up, half-up, or fully down, and an adjustable drawstring.
Sizes in this pattern are for an adult woman – Small (20-in circ), Medium (22-in circ), and Large (24-in circ). Tunisian crochet fabric is not as stretchy as other types of crochet. Therefore, if in doubt about which size to choose, it’s best to go larger, rather than smaller, as adjustments can easily be made with the drawstring.
Skill Level. Detailed instructions are provided to enable advanced beginners and intermediate crocheters to complete this project.
