I do plan to work on more stitch-cation squares, but I got sidetracked - which I often do. LOL A skein just called to me to be made into a hat so that is what I did. Then I found a skein was a good size for a hat so I kept making them. I forgot to take pictures of the first group, but here are two that I did remember to photograph.

The hats are very plain and simple, mindless really.  Easy to work while watching TV. 

I used an adjustable ring for the beginning and put 12 dc in there. Then I increased as 24, 36, 48, 48, 60, 60, 72 stitches per round and then worked even. I added 4 rounds of sc at the brim. 

I used an H hook for these but I think I used an I hook on a couple of the previous ones. Depending on which yarn is used, to 72 stitches on round should give a medium size hat. The I hook would give a larger one, of course.

On one hat I do remember I decided it was too small and I added a round increasing half the number of stitches. That may have been the RH Soft as that is a thin worsted.

To begin each round, I used (ch 1, dc) as my first stitch. When I got back to the beginning, I worked a slip stitch into the dc not the ch-1 to end that round, and began the next round by working the (ch 1, dc). Clear as mud?

I think the grey is Vanna's Choice Charcoal Grey and the brown Vanna's Choice Honey. I'm working on one now in Knit Picks Brava Worsted Eggplant which is a deep purple. I'll try to remember to take a photo of that one, but really they all look the same except for color.

Happy crocheting!
