Materials: Clark's O.N.T. (5 balls) or J. &. P. Coats (4 balls) Mercerized Crochet, size 10, in any desired color. Milward's steel crochet hook No. 8.

Ch 3, join in a ring. 1st row: 6 half d c in ring. 2nd row: 2 half d c in each st. 3rd row: * 2 half d c in next st, 1 half d c in next st. Repeat from * around. 4th row: * 2 half d c in next st, 1 half d c in each of next 2 sts. Repeat from * around. Continue to increase 6 sts (or enough to keep work flat) in each round at regular intervals but not one increase over another of previous rnd, until work measures 7½ inches in diameter. Work even, 1 s c in each st for 3 inches. Break off.

Band: 1st row: Ch 28, s c in each ch. Ch 1, turn. 2nd row: 2 s c in back loop of 1st st, 1 s c in back loop of remaining s c, ch 1, turn. 3rd row: Skip 1st st, 1 s c in back loop of each s c, 2 s c in last s c, ch 1, turn.

Repeat 2nd and 3rd rows thus having all the decreases on same side and all the increases on the opposite side, until band is required length to fit closely to crown. Sew two ends together.

Place band on hat, having the bottom edge touch the last row of hat for about 2 inches at the seam of band (this is the center back), then slope the band gradually until the bottom edge of band, at center front, touches the first row of s c on hat. Sew in position along the bottom edge leaving top edge loose.
