CROCHET INFO:
Don’t end each round with a sl st in first st, but keep working continuous rounds in the round in a spiral. Use a marker or marking thread to mark beginning of each round. Work sc into back loops of sts to create a striped texture.

MAGIC CIRCLE:
Start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, ch 1, then work sc's around the loop. When the desired no of sc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side. Continue to work in the round in a circle.

DECREASE TIPS:
Work together approx every 7th/8th - 6th/7th sc on round. Work 2 sc tog: * insert hook in back loop of next st, get yarn *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

--------------------------------------------------------

HAT:
With hook size 5 mm / H and medium brown make a Magic circle - see above, or ch 4 and join into a ring by working a sl st into 1st chain.

From now on work sc into back loops of sts.

ROUND 3: * 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 24 sc.
ROUND 4: * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 32 sc.
ROUND 5: Work 1 sc in every sc = 32 sc.
ROUND 6: * 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 40 sc.
ROUND 7: * 1 sc in each of the next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* around = 48 sc.

Finish inc in size L/XL here, continue to work sc in the round.
When hat measures 12-15 cm / 5"-6" from top work sc's as before and change colors as follows: 2 rounds black, 3 rounds medium brown, 1 round black and on this round dec 12-14 sc evenly - read dec.tips above (= 76-82 sc remain), 4 rounds black, 2 rounds medium brown.
Now hat measures approx. 20-23 cm /8”-9” from the top.
Fasten off.
