I have no idea which baby will wind up with which, of course, but I was thinking of the other one as Eleanore’s, so it follows that this one is Clara’s:
Same yarn & hook as before, of course. Same stitch multiple (6). Same stitch (HDC) used for the increase rounds.
The difference: The work even rounds are worked as 1SC, 1DC around, the crumple stitch I think it is called. And since the SCs stack upon the SCs and the DCs upon the DCs, it gives an interesting spiral/ribbed look to the hat.
The edging is sl st, 3 ch, sk 1, sl st around.
I hope these hats are deep enough to stay on.
I’ll move on to matching ponchos tomorrow.
