This is more of a guideline than a hat, I'll outline what I did and how to adjust for different sizes. If you have individual questions or are having problems with the pattern, I would love to help you! Just send me an email (feistyroseATgmailDOTcom) or on ravelry (WouldKnitBeNice).
Specs: Hat in tunisian crochet using Chevron stitch (slanted 3x3 rib), crocheted sideways and then seamed.
J afghan hook (IF you do not have a afghan hook, take a regular hook and put a rubber band on the end, it will work fine(crochet hooks are 6+ inches long and hats are around 7 inches high), I've done it before with no problems)
Worsted weight yarn (130 yds ish)
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Tunisian Purl Stitch(P): bring yarn to front of work, insert hook in next bar, yo, draw up loop
Basic Afghan Stitch (BAS)
Row1: *BAS in first 3 sts, P next 3 sts* repeat between stars till end
Row2: P 1 st, *BAS next 3 sts, P next 3 sts* repeat between stars till end
Row3: P 2 sts*BAS 3 sts, P 3 sts* repeat between stars till end
Row4: P 3 sts *BAS 3 sts, P 3 sts* repeat between stars till end
Row5: BAS 1 *P 3 sts, BAS 3 sts* repeat between stars till end
Row6: BAS 2 *P 3 sts, BAS 3 sts* repeat between stars till end
Chain 32 (or more or less for shorter/longer hat)
Row 1: BAS (this is the foundation row)
Rows 2-11: begin stitch pattern, ending each row with one stitch unworked
Row 12: work to end of row then pick up each of the unworked stitches. Section made.
Repeat rows 2-12 4-5 times or until it fits around your head. Make sure you end on Row 6 of the pattern stitch so you ends match. its ok to do half of a section or end a section with out doing the full 10 rows.
seam up side(I always have ugly seams, so I won't tell you how to do it) and then pull yarn through stitches at top to close.
Experitment with different stitch patterns.
