Chunky Visor Hat
I have been seeing this style of hat often lately. I really don't care for headwear, but it's January and pretty cool and i need something to cover my noggin. I am too tight to pay for the pattern I liked very much and I couldn't find a pattern that did not start out with a long chain. So, in one night I came up with super quick and simple pattern for my version of a chunky yarn military visor hat. I don't like it as well as the first one i seen but it works just fine for me.
Chunky Visor Hat
fits a 22" head
At least 81 yrds of super bulky yarn. I used Lion Brand Hometown USA and I did NOT have an inch to spare, cutting it very close!
Not in round bc the ch 3, but do not turn
In a magic ring, chain 3, 9dcs, sl st to join to top of ch3, ch3 (9 dcs)
Row 1: dc in joining st, 2 dcs in each st around, sl st to join, ch 3 (18dcs)
Row 2: dc , 2dcs ss, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 3 (27 dcs)
Row 3: dc, dc, 2 dcs ss, repeat around, sl st to join, ch3 (36 dcs)
Row 4-8: dc in each dc, sl st to join, ch3 (36 dcs) fasten off.
Using front post, find the middle 13 st
Row 1: attach yarn, ch 2, hdc, dc 5x, 2dc ss, dc 4x, hdc 2 x, ch2 turn
Row 2: hdc, dc 4x, 2dc ss, dc 5x, hdc 2x, fasten off.
