PATTERN

Work rather loosely. US crochet instructions.

Chain 3 and join in a ring. Make six single crochet stitches (6 sc) in the ring. Do not join as the work is done around and around both threads of stitch of previous round being taken up throughout the work.

Second round: 2 sc in each stitch

Third round: 2 sc each in first stitch, 1 sc in each of the next two stitches and repeat all around

Fourth round: 2 sc in first stitch 1 sc in each of the next 4 stitches and repeat all around

Continue working, increasing just enough to keep the work perfectly flat, until the crown is four inches in diameter. For a larger size this diameter must be increased. There are 12 rounds in the model cap. At the end of last round, turn and work back for 10 stitches (about 2 inches) to form the neck rows. Turn, skip one stitch, 1 sc in next and repeat from 5 stitches on neck. Put one more sc in last stitch then work around crown to the other end of the neck rows, putting 1 sc in each stitch of previous round. Turn. Work back and forth to form front of cap without widening for 24 rows, in all, being careful to make first and last 23 stitches of each row rather tighter than the rest so that the neck of cap is kept a good shape.

There are 56 stitches on these rows on the model cap, which measure 12 inches from end to end.

The front should now be the desired depth, if not add more rows.

Border: ch. 3, 1 sc in first stitch of front, chain 3, skip 3 and repeat from all around front and neck, skipping fewer stitches at corners, to prevent capping.

Final round: 1 sc in space, chain 3, 1 sc in same space and repeat from all around.

Final row of front: 19 sc, 1 sc through the next two stitches taken together, 3 sc, narrow as before, 4 sc, narrow, 3 sc, narrow, 19 sc. Chain 3, turn and work a row of ribbon holes across neck part, as follows: skip 2 rows, 1 dc in the end of next row, ch 1 and repeat from all across, skipping one stitch on bottom of crown.

Border: ch 3, 1 s. c. in first stitch of front, chain 3, skip 3 and repeat from all around front and neck, skipping fewer stitches at corners, to prevent capping.

Final round: 1 sc in space, chain 3, one sc in same space and repeat from all around.

Make ribbon ties and rosebuds from satin ribbon.
