this will be a crochet baby cap with earflaps i will be using 3 ply yearn a size g, 4.24 millimeter crochet hook if you are new to crochet and you need help with the basic stitches i do have playlists in both right and and left hand versions i am including a live annotation link to each version put your hook below the center strand back up the opposite side. I’m going to be working right through the center of the loop. half double crochet is done by wrapping the yarn over the hook I will be working in the continual round. This is so I know where to change rounds for increasing. The first stitch will be two half double crochet. There will be a total of 24. Now we are set up to continue working around without joining for the remaining length of the cap. Round four will be one half double crochet between each stitch around for a total of 36. That’s working two half double crochet in the same space. Work an increase in the next space working two half double crochet in the same space. You can make the cap shorter if you find that 21 rounds is to much. And that completes the cap. You can end here or continue on and attach the earflaps.
