R 10: Ch 2, SC into the top of the picot, *ch 5 (see note below), SC into the top of the next picot,* repeat from * to * 7x, ch 5, sl st into the top or the begining SC

Note: Try on the hat at this point. If the band does not snugly fit around you head where you would like it to then increase or decrease the amount of chains between the SC. Chaining is fast and easy, and checking at this point will insure you a fit that you like. My chains were done quite loosly. If you increase by a lot you might want to consider adding in a few more DC, ch 1's in the next 3 rows (or decreasing if you had to decrease). It's all about tension and you are at the fastest and most fitted point now. Make it a hat you love to wear!

R 11: Ch 4 (counts a 1st DC and ch 1), into the 1st 5 ch sp (DC, ch 1) 3x, *into the next 5 ch sp (DC, ch 1) 3x, into the next 5 ch sp (DC, ch 1) 4x,* repeat from * to * around, sl st into the 3rd ch of the ch 4 beginning (total of 26 DC & ch1)

R 12-13: Ch 4 (counts a 1st DC and ch 1), *DC into the next DC, ch 1,* repeat from * to * around, sl st into the 3rd ch of the ch 4 beginning (total of 26 DC & ch1)

R 14: Ch 1, SC into the 1st ch 1 sp, *SC 2x into the next ch 1 sp,* repeat from * to * around, sl st into the 2nd ch of the ch 2 beginning (total of 52 SC), tie off and weave in ends
