Crocheted Rib Hat

Topnotcher warmer

Materials: One skein Lion Brand "Homespun" (7 wraps per inch), and a crochet hook that will give YOU the gauge below (I use a "K").

Gauge:  2 1/2 sc = 1"

Abbreviations: Ch = chain, dc = double crochet, dec = decrease, fpst = front post stitch, rnd(s) = round(s), sc = single crochet, sl st = slip stitch, yo = yarn over.

Note: If you are not familiar with front post stitch, you may benefit from this tutorial: 


Ch 46.  Join, without twisting, to form a circle.  Sc around for 7rnds.  Turn inside-out, and crochet to the left again (which is the way you just came) sc in the FRONT LOOPS ONLY.  Sc for 6 rnds.  Join with a sl st.  Ch 2.


Rnd 1:  Dc around.  Ch 2 counts as first Dc.  Join with sl st to top of ch 2.  Ch 2.

Rnd 2:  Fpst around next dc, dc in next dc, fpst around next dc...and so on.  Join with sl st to top of ch 2.  Repeat this round for a total of 8 rnds.

Rnd 10:  Ch 1. Fpst. Dec in next two sts as follows:  Yo, go in next st, yo and pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops. Yo, go around next st as to fpst, yo, and pull up a loop, yo and draw through 2 loops on hook, yo and draw through remaining loops on hook.  Continue around in this manner.

Rnd 11: Fpst around in each st.

Rnd 12:  Dec in this rnd and each rnd here after, till only 6-8 sts rem (dec by crocheting 2 tog with fpst).  

Cut yarn, pull through sts to close, darn in ends.
