Hello. Happy Summer, everyone. I'm still waiting to start at the Smithsonian, so in the meantime, I was able to write up a hat pattern I've been meaning to do for about a year now. Here it is. I'm going to need to take better pics at some point.
Worsted weight yarn
Ch 3 and join with sl st to form ring. Ch 2.
Rnd 1. Dc 12 into ring. Join to first dc with sl st. Join this way throughout. Ch 2.

Rnd 3. *2 fpdc in first fpdc st, 1 fpdc in next fpdc st. Repeat from * around. Join. Ch 2. (36 sts)
Rnd 4. *2 fpdc in first fpdc st, 1 fpdc in next 2 fpdc sts. Repeat from * around. Join. Ch 2. (48 sts)
Rnd 5. *2 fpdc in first fpdc st, 1 fpdc in next 3 fpdc sts. Repeat from * around. Join. Ch 2. (60 sts)
Rnds 6-23. 1 fpdc in each fpdc st around. Join. Ch 2.
Rnd 24. Sc 1 in each st around. Join. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Check the length of your work when you get to Rnd 22 or so. With 23 rnds and one rnd of sc, it could be just slightly too long for some people.
