One size US G-6 (4mm) crochet hook, or size to obtain gauge. Stitch marker (or small piece of contrasting yarn). Yarn needle.

INSTRUCTIONS

SPECIAL TERM
rev sc (reverse single crochet) Work single crochet in opposite direction by inserting hook in next stitch (to the right if right-handed, and to the left if left-handed), yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through both loops on hook.
 
NOTES
1. Hat is worked in continuous rounds, with RS facing throughout. Do not turn and do not join at the end of rounds, unless otherwise instructed. Place a marker to indicate the end of the round and move the marker up as work progresses.
2. Increases are staggered, to produce a rounder, less hexagonal shape.
3. To reduce finishing time, weave in ends as work progresses.
