Seafarers Charity Crochet Pattern

Here is a quick and easy pattern that can be used to crochet a hat in a very short time.
177-7711_IMGThis hat is worked with chunky yarn.
Once again part of the Loving Hands winter challenge is to knit or crochet hats for seafarers.
Materials: Approx. 45g either DK double up for thickness or chunky yarn. 8mm crochet hook.
Pattern:
ch3, join together with sl st to form a ring.
Rnd 1: ch 2, dc x 9 into the ring, join with sl st
Rnd 2: ch 2, dc into first st, dc twice into each of the remaining st ch, join with sl st
Rnd 3: ch 2, * 1 dc, 2 dc into next st*, Repeat to end, join with sl st
Rnd 4:  ch 2, * 1 dc, 2 dc into next st*, Repeat to end, join with sl st
Rnd 5: ch 2, 1 dc into each st, join with sl st.
Repeat Rnd 5 until desired length is reached. You can add additional rows if you want the hat to have a turn up. Here I did Rnd 4 five times.
