lion brand® wool-ease® thick & quick® oslo crochet hat

The Oslo hat keeps it laid back with its casual slightly slouchy shape. Crocheted in super bulky Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® yarn.
Step 1

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS:
- Finished Circumference: About 20" [51 cm], will stretch to fit a range of sizes
Finished Height: About 11" [28 cm]
GAUGE: 8 sts + 5½ rnds = about 4" [10 cm] over Rnds 1-5; be sure to check your gauge
STITCH EXPLANATIONS:
- FPDC (Front Post Double Crochet): Yarn over, insert hook from front to back then to front, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Skip st behind the FPDC.
HDC-BLO (Half Double Crochet in Back Loop Only): Yarn over, insert hook in back loop only of indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.
HDC-FLO (Half Double Crochet in Front Loop Only): Yarn over, insert hook in front loop only of indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.
SC2Tog (Single Crochet 2 Sts Together): (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.
NOTES:
- Hat is worked in one piece in joined and turned rnds beg at lower edge.
- If you find it difficult to join the beg ch into a ring without twisting the ch, Rnd 1 can be worked as a row then joined into a rnd, as follows: Leaving a long beg tail, ch 41, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across; join with sl st in first sc – you will have 40 sc in this row/rnd. Use beg tail to sew gap at base of first row closed and proceed to Rnd 2.
- When instructed to work in a st "2 rnds below", work into the indicated st in the rnd numbered 2 less than the rnd you are currently working. For example, when working Rnd 3, a st "2 rnds below" is in Rnd 3 – 2 = Rnd 1.
