Lydia's Hat

     I made this hat for my niece Lydia. I tried to use a pattern but couldn't find one that I liked that was the right size so I decided to make my own pattern. I haven't had anyone test it for me so I don't know how well I did, but here it is. :) If anyone finds any mistakes please tell me.

     Hook: size I/9

rnd 3= ch 3, 2 dc in same sp, *dc in next dc, 3 dc in next dc* repeat from * to * around. join with sl st in top of ch 3. [38 dc]
rnd 4= ch 3, 2 dc in same sp, *dc in next 3 dc, 3 dc in next dc* repeat from * to * around. join with sl st in top of ch 3. [58 dc]
