I used a shell pattern of *sc, skip 1, 3 dc, skip 1, repeat from*. Each shell's dc is in the sc of the previous shell row and the sc is in the center dc of the previous row.

Q&A with JeanieK

RobynInTucson asked:
also, i LOVE your photo...can I use it for promoting our charity?
JeanieK answered:
Congratulations on putting together such a large project that will really will make a difference. You are welcome to copy and use the photo.
CraftingFriends asked:
Do you have a pattern you can share?
JeanieK answered:
Don't have a pattern, it just evolved as I made them. The crown is a flat circle, then continue without increases for the sides. I used a shell pattern of 3dc that sits between the shells of the previous row.
Paula13 asked:
forgive my ignorance, I am new at this....how do you make a flat circle?
JeanieK answered:
Long reply, hope it makes sense. First row is about 12 double crochet in a slip loop, join with a sl st and ch 2. Second row continue around with 2 dc in each st of previous row, third row dc in every 2nd st, fourth row dc in every 3rd st, continue rounds with one more stitch between increases, adjusting as needed to keep it fairly flat. An internet search on "how to crochet a circle" should get you going . . .
Terrilynne asked:
I love these caps, unfortunately I'm "pattern challenged," which means, I have a hard time figuring things out if there is no pattern. Would it be possible to get the pattern from you?
JeanieK answered:
Crown: 12 dc in slip ring, increase 12 dc each for rows 2 & 3 (Row 2, increase on every other stitch of row 1. Row 3 increase every 3rd stitch of row 2). End rows 1-3 with sl st & ch2. Larger hat, adjust 4th row to 46 dc as base to make 12 shells for 12.5 circumference. Shells Row 1: sc, *sk 1, 3 dc, sk 1, sc. Continue around from *, end row with 3 dc in the sc that began the row. Continue till hat is the size you want, add rows for turn up brim if desired.Continue till hat is the size you want, add rows for turn up brim if desired. Newborn Hat Size Range:
