My crochet hat pattern

I have been making lots of hats lately and thought I would finally write out my pattern for an adult size hat to help me remember it. I always think I will remember and then I stop making hats and have to remember all over again how I make them. So - here is my pattern to share with you and help me remember! Here are some pictures of my recent creations! I hope this pattern helps you!

I crochet hook medium worsted weight yarn
Join with slip stitch at the end of each round.

ROW 1: 12 dc in the magic ring. Or chain 5, join in the first chain. 12 dc in the ring.
ROW 2: 2 dc in each stitch.
ROW 3: 1 dc in the next stitch. 2 dc in the next stitch. Repeat.
ROW 4: 1 dc in the next 2 stitches. 2 dc in the next stitch. Repeat.
ROW 5: 1 dc in each stitch.
ROW 6: 1 dc in the next 4 stitches. 2 dc in the next stitch. Repeat.
ROWS 7-13: 1 dc in each stitch.
For ear flaps - 10 dc on evenly spaced on each side of the hat for 4 rows.

I just finished making ponchos for a group of girls at work. I make these by special order only. The ponchos are asymmetric and can be worn many different ways. So excited to get all 16 done!

Here is a picture (taken with my iPhone) of 13 of the girls with their ponchos on. They are all so pretty!

I've been making so many things for gifts lately but forget to take pictures and post! Sorry. Here is a little pig I crocheted. I recently started trying to make cute little animals using the Amigarumi crochet technique. I learned to make this little pig by following the pattern for Leon the Pig. The pattern is pretty easy to follow and she also has some videos on YouTube to help with the various parts you have to make.
