Pattern: stocking cap

A friend requested a stocking cap, and after much research I couldn't find a free pattern for a cap like this one:


I initially tried making it according to the knitting patterns out there, but they turned out terrible. Eventually I came up with a pattern I really liked.

Start with a magic ring. Single crochet 5 time in ring, and slip stitch to close round. Chain stitch once, and sc across round, adding one increase (2 sc in same stitch) in every round, so that round 2 has 6 sc, round 3 has 7, etc.
Continue increasing until hat is wide enough to fit head. For an adult size, 70-75 should be enough (that's round 66-61). An infant hat should be at about 40 sc (round 36).
Continue until hat is long enough, sc once in each stitch. For an adult hat I made 105 rounds.
I chose to alternate colors every 10 rows. I would probably alternate colors every 5 rounds for a baby hat.
Brim:
rnd 1: ch 2, *dc 3 times, dc dec* repeat until end of row, close with slip stitch.
rnd 2-3: *fpdc, bpdc* until end of row, close with slip stitch.
rnd 4: sc in each stitch.

Make pompom or crochet ball, and add to tip.

Weave in ends.

This is just very cute. Thanks for sharing. Most patterns go from the cuff up I think I will like this way better.

Thank you! I think that cuff-up designs don't work nearly as well for crochet.

I'd like to see it. It would make me feel better about my recent (and now frogged and recycled) frankenscarf. It's amazing how one can eff up a scarf of all things, but I managed gloriously.

Ooh, yes! I frogged it at round 25, and the second one at 60...

I frogged once at 35, and then started improvising by round 75.

It looks like something from a Dr. Seuss book :D

Thanks for the pattern! I've been looking all over for a good crochet stocking cap pattern and then I found this on Ravelry, which I'm a registered user on. Here's hoping I don't fudge up!

Loved it so much I made two different. Both in a multi colored yarn.

I love the ball instead of a pom pom! I would do it in a solid color. That is a little too "Where's Waldo" for me. :-)

Thank you. The colors were a request from a friend and needed to be in those colors for sports team color reasons...
