Row 8: Ch 1, sl st blo in each st across. Turn.

Repeat Rows 5-8 until hat measures desired width.

For head circumference 56-57 cm I have crocheted 43 cm.

Sew 2 sides together making back seam of the hat. Turn the hat wrong side out. Insert the hook underneath the chain of the first row and thought the back loop of the last row, yarn over and pull thorough all loops and stitch on the hook.

Slip stitch those two edges together till the very top. Cut the yarn leaving 15 cm tail. Using yarn needle, insert it back and forth around the top, then pull the yarn tight to close hole. Fasten off and weave in ends.
