Really? It's exactly the same. So just pick a side, any side, and we're gonna start at a seem and we're gonna join the yarn with a slip stitch. And again, we're just we're keeping with our are the same color that we seemed with I'm gonna pull through and I'm going to chain too. Okay, So the chain to is just to give you the height of 1/2 double crush A. But it's not actually gonna count as a stitch when you count them. So we're going to half double crochet a evenly around all the way around. And you want to for this because we're gonna be working with a rib. It's important that you get a certain amount of stitches, and so we need to get 54. So, you know, you may have to fudge it here or there.

  • How to crochet a toboggan hat and a granny square hat
  • How to crochet ear flaps and braided ties for your toboggan hat
