PATTERN NOTES

Right side (RS) always facing when working.

All dc and Bobble st rows start with beg dc instead of ch 3 to create a seamless hat.  Further instructions for completing this stitch can be found here:  https://www.google.com/#q=chainless+beginning+double+crochet

Dc can be substituted for beg dc if desired, but hat will have a seam.
