White Shell Hat

And here is the pattern for the hat.  Sorry the picture is a little blurry.  An option I would like to do for this hat is to find some 1/4th inch ribbon to band around the hat or maybe add some tiny flowers.  I just haven't been able to find any in the right color.



Materials

Size 10 thread in white
Size 6 (1.8 mm) steel hook
1/4th inch pink ribbon (optional)
tiny pink or white ribbon roses (optional)

Gauge

10 sc = 1 inch, 10 sc rows = 1 inch

Directions

Shell = (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in st indicated

Beg Shell = (sl st, ch 2, dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in st indicated

NOTE:  When working in rounds I like to turn at the end of each round to make seam straight.

Round 1:  With white, ch 6, being careful not to twist ch, join to first ch forming a circle, 6 sc in ring, join to first sc, turn.  (6 sc)

Round 2:  Ch 1, 2 sc in ea st, join to beg st, turn. (12 sc)

Round 3:  Ch 1, sc in first st, 2 sc in next st, [sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] around, join to beg st, turn.  (18 sc)

Round 4:  Ch 1, sc in first 2 sts, 2 sc in next st, [sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st] around, join to beg st, turn.  (24 sc)

Round 5:  Ch 1, sc in first 3 sts, 2 sc in next st, [sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st] around, join to beg st, turn.  (30 sc)

Round 6:  Ch 1, sc in first 4 sts, 2 sc in next st, [sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st] around, join to beg st, turn.  (36 sc)

Round 7:  Ch 1, [sc in first (next) st, sk next 2 sts, shell in next st, sk next 2 sts] around, join to beg st, turn. (6 sc, 6 shells)

Round 8:  Ch 1, sc in first ch 2 sp, shell in next sc, [sc in next ch 2 sp, shell in next sc] around, join to beg st, turn.  (6 sc, 6 shells)

Rounds 9-10:  Repeat round 8.

Round 11: Sl st up to first ch 2 sp,  beg shell in first ch 2 sp, shell in next sc, [shell in next ch 2 sp, shell in next sc] around,join to beg st, turn.  (12 shells)

Rounds 12-13:  Sl st up to first ch 2 sp, beg shell in first ch 2 sp, [shell in next ch 2 sp] around, turn. 

Round 14:  Ch 1, sc in first 2 dc, 3 sc in next ch 2 sp, sc in next 2 dc, [sc in next 2 dc, 3 sc in next ch 2 sp, sc in next 2 dc] around, join to beg st.  Fasten off.

Love the look of this Barbie hat, but having difficulty finishing the hat beyond row 11. No single crochet in row 11 to continue with rows 12 and 13.

Well I can see the problem you are having after I have read thru the pattern again. Unfortunately it has been awhile since I've worked on the hat and can't remember what the pattern should say, so I am going to try to figure it out as I make another one tomorrow. Sorry about that....

Ok, I think I have fixed the problem with rows 12 and 13. Thanks for pointing it out to me so I could fix it. Let me know if there are any more problems with this pattern. Thanks....
