Circles & Working Even: Solid Hat (18:50)
Continue practicing by making a simple hat and see the variety of styles you can create. Kim will also explain the simple math of working hats and show you how to get a great fit.
Patterned Crochet in the Round (19:48)

Circles & Shaping: Patterned Beret (23:34)
Move on to another practice project: a patterned beret hat. Kim will share tips for increasing and shaping your beret, decreasing in pattern and adding a sturdy, stylish brim.
Pattern, Color & Edgings: Mandala (22:26)
Find out how to mix patterns and colors to crochet a vibrant mandala. You’ll see how this small project is perfect for trying fun new combinations.
