US terms used

Stitches Used: Main body of the hat
Sl st = slip stitch
Ch = chain
Dc = double crochet
Bdc = back double crochet = see special stitch explanation

Stitches used: Hat edge
Fphdc = front post half double crochet
Bphdc = back post double crochet

Special stitch Explanation: when we look at the loops of the dc that we work into, you will see that there are 2 strands of yarn on the top of the dc and one strand of yarn on the bottom, coming from the front of the dc, we place our hook in the space between these and make a dc. The special stitch is made by placing your hook behind the dc, going into the space over and under the single strand pulling our working yarn through to make a dc. This technique does become as fast and efficient as a commonly placed dc.

The hat is made from the top of the crown and down to the hat edge
