Double Crochet, 14 sts by 8 rows = 4 inch square

special stitches:
fdc = foundation double crochet
fpdc = front post double crochet

note:
Chain 2 does not count as stitch at beginning of rounds, it is merely to help the stitch get to proper height.

I wrote the instructions as for one color, but stripes are really easy to make a more colorful hat; cut the first yarn after slip stitch join. Join next color as slip stitch in same join; ch 2 as usual and continue as instructed for row. Weave in ends as you go to keep the task easier at the end.
