(16) Row 3: (1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) around (24) Row 4: (1 sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st) around (32) Row 5: (1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st) around (40) Row 6: 1 sc in each st around (40) Row 7: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 4 sts) around (48) Row 8: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 5 sts) around (56) Row 9: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 6 sts) around (64) Rows 10 - 20: 1 sc in each st around (64) AT END OF ROW 20, SL ST IN BOTH LOOPS OF NEXT ST.

  3. Totally Looped Hat © 6/23/04 Dorothy “Dot” Matthews. All rights reserved. Originally published at http://patbythehook.blogdrive.com This pattern is intended for personal use only.

You are welcome to direct people to this pattern by posting a link to it. This pattern may not be posted on any other site or distributed in any other manner. Pictures show adult size totally looped, child size frooty loops, and adult sized striped. Materials used: ww yarn K and I hook for adult size K and G hook for child size. Larger hook to make the hat and smaller hook to make the loops. Work stitches in back loops only. The unworked loops of these stitches will be used later in the pattern. The hat is worked in a spiral. Do not join rows unless stated. Use a stitch marker to indicate the beginning stitch of each row. Numbers in ( ) at end of rows states total number stitches for that row. ch 4, join Row 1: ch 1, 12 sc in ring. (12) Do not join. Place marker in first stitch of each row to indicate the beginning of the row. Row 2: (1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) around. (18) Row 3: (1 sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st) around. (24) Row 4: (1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st) around. (30) Row 5: (1 sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st) around. (36) Row 6: (1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st) around. (42) Row 7: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 6 sts) around. (48) Note: the last stitch of row 6 has 2 stitches in it and the first stitch of row 7 also has 2 stitches in it. Row 8: (2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 7 sts) around. (54) The following rows are worked even over 54 stitches. No increases after row 8. Rows 9 - 20: 1 sc in ea st around. (54) Do not break off. At end of row 20, sl st in next stitch. Loop rows: Change to smaller hook. Loop row 1: Ch 1, turn, sl st in back loop of last sc you just made. (Ch 10, sl st in back loop of next sc) around. You will place stitches in the unworked loops of each stitch and follow the natural spiral of the hat Loop row 2: (ch 10, sl st in next st) around. Repeat row 2 until hat is covered. When you reach the top of the hat, you may have to do a few more chain 10 loops and sl st in the very beginning ch 4 circle, placing sl sts between the sc's of the first row. This is just to hide the beginning circle at the top of the hat and may not be necessary. STRIPED VARIATION: Loop row 1: Ch 1, turn, sl st in back loop of last sc you just made. (Ch 10, sl st in back loop of next sc) around. Drop main color and attach contrasting color. Do not break off main color. Loop row 2: with contrasting color, (ch 10, sl st in next st) around. Drop contrasting color and pick up main color. Do not break off contrasting color. Loop row 3: with main color, (ch 10, sl st in next st) around Repeat Loop row 2 and Loop row 3 for as many rows as you want. You can stop half way up for a Half Looped look or you can continue with the loop rows until you completely cover the hat, to achieve the Totally Looped look. CHILD'S SIZE Row 1 - 7: same as pattern for Adult size. (48) Row 8 - 18: 1 sc in ea st around (48) do not break off. At end of row 18, sl st in next st. LOOP ROWS: Work same as adult size but ch 5 instead of 10 for the loops.
