Tipsy Lemon Child's Hat (Age 6-10)


A friend challenged me to try upsizing my tipsy lemon baby hat to a child’s size, for her 6 year old granddaughter.  It took some internet searching for dimensions and a bit of frogging along the way, but here you have it! A tipsy lemon child’s hat for ages 6-10.


For instructions on how to complete the Tipsy Lemon stitch, please see the tutorial on my blog, by following this link:

You will need

Approximately 3 ½ oz of #4 yarn (150 yd)

5.5 mm hook

Yarn needle

Scissors

Pompom maker or similar


Finished size

9½” diameter by 8” high.


Abbreviations

Ch Chain

St Stitch

SC Single crochet

HDC Half double crochet

HBDC Herringbone double crochet

Sl St Slip stitch


Notes

  • This hat is worked from top down.

  • Single chain at beginning of each round is not included in stitch count.

  • You will be working into the slip stitch in each row so be sure to keep it even in size to other stitches.

  • The tipsy lemon stitch has the advantage of hiding the slip stitch join and SC into the next round well into the fabric of the work.
