Hat size: Adult Medium/large

Materials:
Hat measures 21" relaxed; 24" stretched
K hook; Caron Simply Soft, or any WW yarn

Gauge: 3 rows = 2"; 6 dc's = 2"

Note 1
: Beginning ch 3 counts as first stitch

Note 2
: Join rows, but do not turn.

Note 3
: Numbers in ( ) at end of rows depict number of stitches for that row.

Special Stitches:

Berry Stitch - Insert hook in stitch, pull up a loop, (yo, draw through 1 loop on hook) 3 times, yo, draw through last 2 loops on hook to complete the stitch.
decrease (dec) - pull up a loop in next st, pull up a loop in next st, yo and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

ROW 1: Ch 4, 11 dc in 1st st. (12 sts)

ROW 2
: Ch 3, dc in same st as join, 2 dc in ea st around. Join in top of beg ch 3. (24 sts)

ROW 3
: Ch 3, dc in same st as join, 1 dc in next st, (2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st) around. Join in top of beg chain 3. (36 sts)

ROW 4
: Ch 3, dc in same st as join, 1 dc in next 2 sts, (2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 2 sts) around. Join in top of beg chain 3. (48 sts)

ROW 5
: Ch 3, dc in same st as join, 1 dc in next 3 sts, (2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 3 sts) around. Join in top of beg chain 3. (60 sts)

ROW 6
: Ch 3, 1 dc in next st and in each st around. Join in top of beg ch 3. (60 sts)

ROW 7: Repeat row 6.

ROW 8
: Repeat row 6.

NOTE
: A Berry Stitch is made similar to a single crochet but when you have 2 loops on hook, instead of yarn over and draw through both loops on hook to complete the single crochet, do 3 chains, then yo and draw through both loops on hook.

ROW 9
(Berry Stitch Row): Ch 1, Berry Stitch in same stitch as join and in each stitch around. Join in first berry stitch. (see special stitch instructions at beginning of pattern). (60 berry stitches)

ROW 10
: Repeat row 9. (60 berry stitches)

ROW 11
: Ch 1, sc in same st as join, sc in next st and in ea st around. Join in first sc. (60 sts)

NOTE: Hat size can be adjusted at this point. For a larger size, repeat row 11 instead of doing row 12, then go on to row 13.

ROW 12
: Ch 1, sc in same st as join, sc in next 2 sts, (dec over next 2 sts, sc in next 3 sts) around. Join in first sc. (48 sts)

ROW 13
: Ch 1, sc in same st as join, sc in next st and in ea st around. Join in first sc. (48 sts)

ROW 14
: Ch 1, sc in same st as join, sc in next st and in ea st around. Join in first sc. (48 sts)

ROW 15
: Ch 1, sl in same st as join, ch 1, (sl st in next st, ch 1) around, join in first st.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
