Free Pattern: Newborn Sack Hat

I'm whipping these bad boys out!! Here is the second FREE pattern in 2 days. I call it the Sack Hat well because it looks like a SACK!! I'm pretty creative on the names I know! Anywho here you go and please post your pictures if you choose to try this one out. 

Supplies Needed:
Yarn: 1/2 skein of Worsted Weight Yarn (4) any color you choose. 
Hook: H, 5.00 mm
Ribbon: Any type you choose

Abbreviations (click the link for a video tutorial):
ch: Chain
sl st: Slip Stitch

Skill Level: Easy/Beginner

This pattern is for a newborn, if you would like to make it a different size just increase or decrease chains to fit head size. ALWAYS have an even number of stitches so the fpdc & bpdc will always be alternating.

Ch 41, sl st to join. Careful not to twist chain!
Row 1: Ch 2 (counts as dc), 1 dc in each ch, sl st to join.
Row 2: Ch 1, *fpdc in next chain/post, bpdc in next chain/post, repeat from *, sl st at the top of the Ch 1.
Row 3: Repeat Row 2 until your work reach 9.5 inches, sl st and tie off. Weave in ends.

Take your ribbon, cinch together at approximately 5.5-6 inches from the bottom and double knot your ribbon. You must make sure that your hat that you have left enough room on the bottom portion so that your hat will fit. Tie a bow with your ribbon.

*You could also use a button instead of a ribbon if you prefer but you will still have to cinch the hat closed with yarn*

I hope this all makes sense. It's a very easy hat to make, it's just very repetitive!!
