Huge thank you to Crochet Kim who taught me how to work both stitches!
chain to a length the size of hat (from crown to ears), add 1.5 to 2 more inches (as desired), plus two chains.
Row 1: tunisian purl each stitch
Row 2: tunisian purl each stitch
Row 3: tunisian simple stitch across
Row 4: tunisian simple stitch across
Repeat rows 1 through 4 until work is the diameter that goes around your head (or head of person the hat is for)
seam sides together using slip stitch if rows are even, sc if needed for spacing
weave yarn through the stitches at one end and pull tight, secure with a knot. (Alternatively, you can braid yarn, weave it through the stitches at one end and make a hat that will also work as a cowl)
turn inside out,
fold the bottom 1.5 to 2 inches up for a brim.
if desired, add a pom pom to the top.
