As this hat is made with measurements, you can use any hook and any yarn you prefer.
However, the hook you use should be 2 sizes bigger than the hook you normally use with the yarn you choose. It has to be very loose.
I normally use the 5mm with Drops Nepal, but for this hat I used the 7mm
I used for the hat in the picture:
Drops Nepal, Yarn thickness group C, 50 gr = 82 yds, 10wpi
With the 7mm hook: HDC 10x10cm (4x4) = 9st x 10 rows
After completing R3a (still in the increasing stage), the diameter of your work should measure 10 cm / 4 inches across, if you follow my gauge and calculations as mentioned below.
For the child size hat as pictured:
For the three color hat, use 1 skein of each color. You will not use all of it.
Yarn needle to weave in ends
MC - Magic Circle
CH - Chain
SLST - Slip stitch
HDC - Half Double Crochet

So I needed a hobby and I discovered I had a hidden talent in Crochet. I like to design and to make new things. I'm not good at repeating projects. Once a project is finished, I'm ready to move on to the next. That's why you would mostly see patterns in my shop instead of finished items.
