bulky single-crochet tam

bringing more patterns over from their old home on quazen!

for this pattern, you will need bulky weight yarn and a K hook.  it’s worked in rows instead of in a spiral, but if you’re more comfortable with a spiral method, please use it; just make sure you mark the beginnings of your rows (i tend to get lost using the spiral method.)

Row 1 – From the beginning stitch, ch 2 (counts as first sc- throughout the pattern the first ch-2 will always count as the first sc).  Sc 5 more times in beginning st, and connect to first sc with a sl st.  You should now have 6 sc in a loop.

Row 2 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  2 sc in each st around.

Row 3 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 4 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 5 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 3 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 6 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 4 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 7 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 5 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 8 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 6 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 9 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 7 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 10 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 8 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 11 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 9 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 12 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 10 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 13 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 11 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 14 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 12 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 15 – Ch 2.  Sc in same stitch.  *Sc in next 13 st, 2 sc in next st.  Repeat from * around.

Row 16 – Ch 2.  Sc in each st.

Repeat row 16 ten more times.

Row 27 – Ch 2.  *Sc dec over next two stitches.  Repeat from * around.  If you don’t know how to do a sc dec or sc2tog, here’s a great video.

Row 28 – Ch 3.  Dc in each st around.

Row 29 – Ch 3.  *Fpdc in next st, bpdc in next st.  Repeat from * around.  The links provided will give you a tutorial if you don’t know these stitches.

Row 30 – Ch 3.  Fpdc in each fpdc and bpdc in each bpdc around.

Row 31 – Repeat row 30.

You can continue row 30 for as long as you need to to make a longer brim, but I’ve found that with bulky yarn, 2-3 rows of fpdc/bpdc ribbing works great.

peace and love!
