My method was to use the directions from the C2C Moss Stitch Square,
https://www.cookiesnobcrochet.com/home/c2c-moss-stitch-tutorial
I worked to the dimensions of The Clever Hat, testing to make sure it would stretch around my head. I made the rectangle approximately 25 cm by 43 cm, then did a stretchy Moss stitch along one long edge, which will be the turned up edge of the brim. Without even cutting the yarn, I did a crochet join of the two short edges, making it slightly stretchy, too. Again, without cutting yarn, I did a SC2Tog type stitch around and around on the crown to gather the top. Future versions might be made with a slightly wider short side. Perhaps 28 cm instead of 25 cm. That will give a little more room in the crown, and some flexibility for the depth of the brim.
It works, but there may be better ways to do it. I used Moss stitch because I thought it would have enough stretch for comfort.

Love the fresh blue colour and the pattern of the stitches.  It will be a lovely warm beanie for some lucky child.

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
