MCK Ribbed Cap

Uses small quantities of 2 colors of baby weight yarn (I used Bernat Softee) and a G (4.5 mm) hook.


Note: The ribbing in this hat is made with Front Post Double Crochet stitches. To form the crown of the hat, you will increase stitches in the first 5 rows. When increasing, you will do a DC in the same stitch as your FPDC. Starting in row 6 you no longer increase.


To start – with color A chain 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a loop.

1) chain 3 (counts as first DC here and throughout), 9 DC in loop (10 dc)

2) chain 3, *FPDC in next stitch, DC in SAME stitch*, repeat ** around ending with a FPDC, slip stitch to join (20 stitches– 10 each alternating DC and FPDC)

3) chain 3, dc in next stitch, *FPDC in next stitch, DC in same stitch, dc in next stitch*, repeat ** around ending with FPDC, slip stitch to join changing to color B (30 stitches)

4) with color B, chain 3, dc in next two stitches, *FPDC in next stitch, DC in same stitch, dc in next 2 stitches*, repeat ** around ending with FPDC, slip stitch to join changing back to color A (40 stitches)

5) with color A, chain 3, dc in next three stitches, *FPDC in next stitch, DC in same stitch, dc in next 3 stitches*, repeat ** around ending with FPDC, slip stitch to join (50 stitches)

You are done increasing now. Continue pattern without increasing – you no longer will do a DC in the same stitch as your FPDC

6) chain 3, dc in next three stitches, *FPDC in next stitch, dc in next 4 stitches*, repeat ** around ending with FPDC, slip stitch to join (50 stitches)

7) chain 3, dc in next three stitches, *FPDC in next stitch, dc in next 4 stitches*, repeat ** around ending with FPDC, slip stitch to join changing back to color B (50 stitches)

8) with color B chain 3, dc in next three stitches, *FPDC in next stitch, dc in next 4 stitches*, repeat ** around ending with FPDC, slip stitch to join changing back to color A (50 stitches)

9) with color A chain 3, dc in next three stitches, *FPDC in next stitch, dc in next 4 stitches*, repeat ** around ending with FPDC, slip stitch to join (50 stitches)

10) chain 3, dc in next three stitches, *FPDC in next stitch, dc in next 4 stitches*, repeat ** around ending with FPDC, slip stitch to join (50 stitches)

11) chain 3, dc in next three stitches, *FPDC in next stitch, dc in next 4 stitches*, repeat ** around ending with FPDC, slip stitch to join changing back to color B (50 stitches)

12) with color B, chain 3, FPDC in next stitch, dc in next stitch. Continue alternating FPDC and DC around the row to create a ribbed edging.
