Continue with s c, making 6 increases every rnd, equally spaced. Do not make increases over increases of previous rnd. Work until crown measures 5¼ inches in diameter then work a rnd without increasing. Next rnd: Increase 5 times, evenly spaced. Then work one rnd without increasing, and increase 4 times in the next rnd. Continue without increasing until crown measures 3¼ inches from 1st rnd to edge. From now on the hat is made with d c (except over wires), and each row is joined with sl st, and turn.

Work 2 rows of s c in each st, join with sl st, ch 1, turn. Holding inside of hat toward you, work 1 s c in each of 2 sts, and 2 s c in next. Join with sl st. Change to No. 3 hook, ch 3, turn, d c in each st, join, ch 3, turn. D c in each of 9 sts, 2 d c in next, for one row. Work 2 rows without increasing and in next row increase in every 15th st. Work a row of s c over wire, being careful not to bend wire more than necessary. Fasten wire neatly together, join the row with sl st, ch 3, turn. D c in each st, increasing in every 25th st, join, ch 3, turn. In next row increase 20 times, but do not have increases come over those of previous row. Join, ch 3, turn. Then make a row with increases 30 times. Make another row of s c over wire. In next row of d c, increase in every 5th st. Work a row of d c without increasing, and finish with a row of sl sts.
