Hats off to winter

There’s something very satisfying about making a present for someone. And I don’t know about you but I love it when someone has put love and hard work into a present. So I’m hoping my sick auntie will like this, as I’ve put stitches of love into it.
This the basic pattern, add stripes as it pleases you or not at all.

Stitches

single crochet: insert hook,yarn over,draw through,yarn over and draw through two loops
half treble:yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, draw through, yarn over and draw through 3 loops
half treble 2together: yarn over, insert hook into first stitch, yarn over, draw through, yarn over, insert hook into second stitch, yarn over, draw through, yarn over and draw through all five loops….you’ll figure it out!

CROCHET BEANIE

Make 100 chains ( ch ) and slip stitch ( ss ) into the first to make a ring making sure it’s not twisted.
Make 1 ch and single crochet ( sc )into each ch until end and slip stitch into first sc. 100 sts.
Do 8 more rounds the same.
Make 2 ch, miss st at base of 2 ch, 1 half treble crochet ( htr ) into each stitch until end, ss into top of 2 ch at beginning of round.
Do 9 rounds the same.
Make 2 ch, miss st at base of 2 ch.* half treble2together ( htr2tog ) over next 2 htr, 1 htr into each of the next 7 htr * 11 times, ss to top of 2 ch at beginning of round. 89 sts.
Work 1 round htr.
Make 2 ch, miss st at base of 2 ch.* htr2tog over next 2 htr, 1 htr into each of next 6 htr * 11 times, ss to top of 2 ch at beg of round. 78 sts
Work one round htr.
Make 2 ch, miss st at base of 2 ch.* htr2tog over next 2 htr, 1 htr into each of next 5 htr* 11 times, ss to top of 2 ch at beg of round. 67 sts.
Work one round htr.
Make 2 ch, miss st at base of 2 ch. * htr2 tog over next htr, 1 htr into each of next 4 htr* 11 times, ss to top of 2 ch at beg of round. 56 sts.
This time don’t work one round of htr. But work as above and decrease the number of htr between htr2tog to 3. This gives you 56 sts.
Keep this pattern up reducing htr between htr2tog by 1st each round (4 rounds) till you htr2tog in each stitch, and end up with 12 sts.
Work one more round of htr2tog. Then fasten off. Run a gathering thread around the top of the last round and pull tight to close top and fasten securely.
