This is a 1X1 Ribbed Toque
Lionbrand “Landscapes” yarn, 50% wool/50%acrylic, 100 gm, (2 balls, 50 gm each.)
Construction: knitted flat, 12″ overall length. Side seamed. Fold up the brim.
Cast-on 50 stitches, crochet cast-on method with size 8mm crochet hook.
K1,P1 across all stitches (also known as 1X1 rib )
Continue in 1X1 for 11 inches.
Start to decrease stitches for crown,
*K1, K2 together*, and repeat across row.
Repeat the decreasing rows, until you feel that the stitches can now be gathered in and secured.
I use the Crochet chainstitch method of seaming the side seam. Seam on the appropriate side for the fold up brim section.
Caution: This particular yarn will felt with repeated washings in hot water.
