CROCHET CHUNKY HAT – Pattern starts here:

Row 1: Starting in 3rd ch from hook, hdc across row in back bar of chain, turn. 24 (28, 31)
Row 2: Ch 2, hdc in back loops only across row, turn. 24 (28, 31)
Repeat Row 2 for a total of 22 (25, 28) rows.
Leaving a tail that’s approximately 2 – 3 arm’s lengths long, fasten off.
SEAMING THE HAT
Fold piece in half so that the starting and finishing edges are touching. Line up your stitches. Thread tail into yarn needle and whip stitch hat seam closed.
CINCHING THE HAT TOP
Using yarn needle insert the hook and whip stitch into the side of each stitch in every row around the top of hat.
Once you reach back around to where you started, gently pull your yarn tail to cinch closed.
Take yarn needle and secure cinch and close any remaining hole with whip stitch. Knot and fasten off. Pull any tails to the inside of the hat.
MAKING THE POM POM
Using your pom pom maker, create a 3 inch pom pom.
Make sure you leave a long tail so that you can easily attach your pom pom to your hat!
Lay hat and pom pom out in front of you. Use pom pom tails and a yarn needle to attach pom pom to center top of the hat.
Knot tails on inside of hat to secure.
Weave in all ends.
