GAUGE: 2 puff sts and 2 sc make 1¼ inches.
Starting at center of back, ch 2. 1st rnd: 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. 2nd rnd: 2 sc in each sc around (12 sc). 3rd rnd: * Sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc. Repeat from * around (18 sc). 4th rnd: * Sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc. Repeat from * around (24 sc). Continue thus, increasing 6 sc evenly on each rnd until there are 90 sc on the rnd and piece measures about 4¼ inches in diameter. Work 1 rnd without increasing. Now work front as follows: 1st row: Working in back loop only of sc's, make * sc in next sc, ch 1, skip next sc, yarn over, insert hook in next sc and pull loop through, (yarn over, insert hook in same sc and pull loop through) twice; yarn over and draw through all loops on hook (puff st made). Repeat from * until there are 26 puff sts, sc in next sc after last puff st. Remaining 11 sc are for back of neck. Ch 1, turn. 2nd row: Sc in 1st sc, * sc in 2 top loops of puff st, sc in ch-1 sp, sc in next sc. Repeat from * across (79 sc). Ch 1, turn. 3rd row: Working in both loops of sc's, work same as 1st row. Repeat 2nd and 3rd rows alternately until piece measures 4 inches from last rnd of back, ending with 2nd row. Ch 1, turn.
EDGING … 1st row: Sc in 1st sc, * skip next sc, 5 dc in next sc (shell made), skip next sc, sc in next sc. Repeat from * across. Ch 1, turn. 2nd row: Sl st in each st across. Break off.
Work a row of shells (same as Edging) in remaining free loops of sc's of last rnd of back. Continue shells across back of neck, joining last shell with sl st in 1st sc. Ch 1, turn and work sl st in each st around. Break off.
Cut the 1-inch ribbon in half and sew to Cap for ties. Using 1 yard for each rosette, make 2 rosettes of narrow ribbon and sew in place.
Starting at wrist, ch 33 to measure 5½ inches. Join with sl st to form ring. 1st rnd: Ch 1, sc in same place as sl st, sc in each ch around (33 sc). 2nd rnd: Sc in each sc around. Repeat 2nd rnd until piece measures 2½ inches. Next rnd: Sc in each sc around, decreasing 4 sts evenly around—to dec 1 sc, work off 2 sc as 1 sc. Following rnd: Sc in each sc around. Repeat last 2 rnds alternately (being careful decreases do not fall directly over each other) until 21 sc remain. Next rnd: Work off 2 sc as 1 sc all around (11 sc). Break off, leaving an 8-inch length. Thread a needle with this length and run through remaining sts. Pull tight and darn in end on wrong side.
CUFF … 1st rnd: With wrong side facing, attach yarn at wrist edge and work sc in base of each sc around (33 sc). Sl st in 1st sc. Ch 1, turn. 2nd rnd: Sc in same place as sl st, * ch 1, skip next sc, puff st in next sc, sc in next sc. Repeat from * around, ending with puff st in last sc, sl st in 1st sc. Ch 1, turn. 3rd rnd: Sc in same place as sl st, * sc in the 2 top loops of puff st, sc in ch-1 sp, sc in next sc. Repeat from * around (33 sc). Sl st in 1st sc. Ch 1, turn. Repeat 2nd and 3rd rnds alternately until Cuff measures 1½ inches, ending with 3rd rnd. Ch 1, turn and work 2 rnds same as 1st and 2nd rows of Edging on Cap. Break off.
