I am looking for a crochet pattern for a hat that goes in a continuous round with out breaking off or joining just increasing and then just the pattern. I used to make them for all my friends but I can't remember the pattern or increase. I want a SC for the warmth they provide and basic so that men as well as women can wear them. Help.

Okay, I'll make an attempt to describe my pattern:

First, I don't chain for the center hole - I do a slip not so the hole closes tighter - if you haven't done that, or can't figure it out, you can probably chain 4, join and then crochet into the center of the circle.

Using worsted weight with an H hook:

Form circle as described above. DC 12 into center of circle, join.

Round 2: Chain 2 (or three depending on what you need to get the height for a DC). Do not turn (ever in this pattern) DC in same stitch as chain, 2DC in each stitch all the way around (24 DC).

Row 3: Chain 2. 2DC in next stitch. Single DC in next stitch. Repeat around. Join with slip stitch to top of first Chain DC.

Row 4: Chain 2. DC in next stitch. 2DC in next stitch, single DC in next two stitches. Repeat around. Join with slip stitch.

Row 5: Chain 2. DC in next two stitches. 2 DC in next stitch, sincle DC in next three stitches. Repeat around. Join with slip stitch.

Row 6: Chain 2. DC in next three stitches. 2DC in next stitch, single DC in next four stitches. Repeat around. Join with slip stitch.

Basically, keep increasing the one DC in between the 2DC until the crown is the size you want it. I usually do six total rounds for the crown.

Round 7: single crochet all the way around. Sometimes I'll just do back post so I get a cool edge, but you can do both posts for a flatter look. Join with slip stitch.

Round 8: DC in each stitch all the way around. Join with slip stitch.

Repeat round 8 (12) times for adult sized hat.

For the final edge, I use a crab stitch (single crochet backwards around) because it looks nice, but you can also do a single crochet around the edge. Join with slip stitch.

If you did a slip knot circle to start, pull it tight and weave in the end. Otherwise, just weave in your two ends and you're done!

I'm not a pattern developer, so I apologize if what I said doesn't make sense. Ask if you have questions.

Just realized you were looking for a SC pattern. Sorry - mine's double crochet. I think SC are too stiff! :)

It's funny - I just did that exact pattern yesterday, with fabu results, and today, I switched to a different color, and the yarn must be thicker, because the crown came out all ripple-y. Going to drop down to a G hook to see if that makes a difference.
