Crochet ribbed fisherman’s rib beanie pattern:
Ch 41. Measure the chain. Your chain must measure about 24 cm for the hat with folded brim. Add more chains if 41 are not enough.
Row 1: Ch1, starting in the second loop from hook, 33 hdc. The length of last 8 unworked chain must measure 4-5 cm. You can have more or less unworked stitches. After that make 8 sl st. Turn.
Row 2: Ch 1, 8 sl st blo, 33 hdc blo. Crochet the very last stitch through both loops (front and back) each even row. We do it to make the hat’s edge less elastic and springy. Turn.
Row 3: Ch 1, 33 hdc blo, 8 sl st blo, turn.
Row 4: Ch1, 8 sl st blo, 33 hdc blo. Do not forget to crochet the very last stitch through both loops.
Repeat Rows 3-4 until hat measures desired width.
For head circumference 50-52 cm I have crocheted 41 cm.
Join 2 sides together. We will seam brim on the right side and the main part of beanie on the wrong side.
Ch 1. Insert the hook underneath the back loop of the fabric that is closest to you and into the bottom of starting chain on the other side, yarn over and pull it through both loops and stitch on the hook. Seam for about 5 cm, then turn the hat wrong side out and seam those two edges together till the very top. On the wrong side insert the hook into the bottom of starting chain and underneath front loop on the other side, yarn over and pull it through both loops and stitch on the hook.
Cut the yarn leaving 20 cm tail.
On the top, using yarn needle pull it back and forth around the top, then pull the yarn tight to close hole. Fasten off and weave in ends.
