THE ROUND TOP OF THE CROCHET STRAWBERRY HAT.

Every crochet hat starts from the top (every knit hat starts from the bottom). It's a flat circle. Do not make a slip stitch at the end of each row and do not make a CH stitch at the beginning of each row, work in spirals instead - you will have no seam. Attach the stitch marker to the end of the first or the second row to indicate it and move the stitch marker up as the work progresses.

CH 3. (make a chain of 3 stitches).

Join the chain in a ring with a slip stitch.

Preemie size: Make 9 or 10 more rows as Row #13, slip stitch at the end of the last row.

THE RUFFLES.

After completing the basic hat and making a slip stitch at the end of the last row make 2 rows of ruffles:

Row #1: CH 1 and make 3 SC in each stitch all around the row, slip stitch at the end of the row.

Row #2: CH 1 and make 2 SC in each stitch all around the row, slip stitch at the end of the row.

The result is ruffled edge. Add a crochet flower and the pretty girly hat is ready :)
