Nothing much to say about this, I wanted to make a hat for my best buddy and so I just came up with this design after learning fpdc and bpdc.

I like that hat it's nice. I would wear it too. Any chance of a tute?

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Yup! I can give you a bit of a tute.  I already gave the hat to my friend but I can explain how I did it.  I used a size J aluminum hook and some bernat chunkie soft (or whatever it is called). 

-first I started off with a ring and dc'd into it an even amount of stitches
-the next row was *fpdc, bpdc*
-after a couple rows (until I knew I had to increase) I went *fpdc, bpdc, 2 fpdc in same post, bpdc*
-then I kept working the hat until in *fpdc, fpdc, bpdc, fpdc, bpdc*
-When I need to increase again and then I went *2fpdc i same post, bpdc, 2 fpdc in same post, bpdc* - so now all ribbed posts are the same width of two stitches
- finally when I needed to increase for the last time I went *fpdc, fpdc, 2 bpdc in same post, fpdc, fpdc, 2 bpdc in same post* which just increases the space between the ribbs
-then you finish the rest of the length of the hat with the *fpdc, fpdc, bpdc,bpdc*

I think that was confusing, so please ask me any questions

Well, I'll try Smiley It's hard for me to explain.  to begin with the hat just has one column of fpdc's then one of bpdc's  (which are both just one stitch wide) as you continue you make every other column of fpdc's two stitches wide and then the next increase you need is making it so that every fpdc column is two stitches wide and the final big increase is making every row of bpdc's two stitches wide

If you were wondering how to increase you simply crochet to fpdc's in a post and then the next row you fpdc in both stitches seperately (like you would if you were increasing with regular dc-- the only difference is that you're working on the post)

I hope that helps? If anybody knows how to explain it better feel free to jump in here Smiley
