Rnd 2: Ch 3 and dc in the same st as your join, *2 dc in the next st, repeat from * ten times, sl st into the top of the ch-3 to join, turn work. <24 dc>
Rnd 3: Ch 3 and dc in the same st as your join, dc in the next st, * 2 dc in the next st, dc in the next st, repeat from * ten times, sl st into the top of the ch-3 to join, turn work. <36 dc>

End of increase rounds- double check your measurements. Your flat circle should measure 6". From here on down you will be using a ch-2 instead of a ch-3 and it will not count as a st.
The hat will begin to take on a domed shape.
Rnd 6-16: Ch 2 and dc in the same st as your join, dc in each st around, sl st into the top of the first dc (skipping over the beginning ch-2) to join, turn work. <60 dc>

Rnd 17: Ch 1 and sc in the same st as the join, sc in each st around, sl st into the top of the first sc (skipping the beginning ch-1) to join, do NOT turn work. <60 sc>
Rnds 18-22: Ch 1 and 3 sc in the same st as the join, skip 2 sts, *3 dc in the next st, skip 2 sts, repeat from * around, sl st into the top of the first sc (skipping the beginning ch-1) to join, do NOT turn work. <60 sc>
With the hat turned inside out, weave in all ends, be sure the magic circle is secured tightly. Attach optional pom-pom. Turn right side out and enjoy your new creation!
