I might join in on this!
I need a hat that fits well with my short(er) hair and a lot of my old hats don't work. So here's hoping!

This hat has been slow going for me... I've been trying to catch up on laundry and haven't had much time to sit down and really work on this pattern.  I've just started the 6th row, and am hoping to work on it more this weekend!


Sorry for the bad pic - camera ran out of batteries so I had to use my cell phone.  Wink

Just a quick heads up:
Updated the pattern so there are now two sizes:
Smaller (which is new) fits heads 18-22"
and Larger (the original) fits heads 21-26"
I know some people have said that my hats turn out large, I have a large head and very thick hair so I tend to design them that way. Hopefully with more size options they'll fit normal-head-sized people better, lol. I need to keep in mind not everyone is shaped like a lollipop when I write patterns  Cheesy

Ohmigosh!!!!  I am getting really frustrated with this.
I couldn't figure out what row i was supposedly on, so i ripped the whole thing out.  The stitches I had didn't match up to what was in the pattern, so I couldn't figure out what to do. When i ripped it out, i found out i had evidently started with 16 stitches the last time - i don't know how the heck that happened?? I'm still not sure.
now i can't even get past the third row. i have the 24fdpc's, and i keep coming up with only 36 stitches in the next row, not 40. I have tried it 3 times. I had to turn off the TV even so i could try concentrating more on it, and I just don't get what the problem is.  ::::deep breathing::::

I recently updated the pattern so the standard size is medium instead of large, so if you started on the hat before the update there should be 16 stitches to begin with. If you restarted with 14 stitches to begin with you should have 28 fpdcs at the end of the second row, if you only have 24 then the third row will only give you 36 stitches, so the problem lies somewhere in rows 1-2, hope this makes sense.

Newbie Alert!!
Hi everybody - I was wondering if someone would hold my hand on this project...
Here is silly question #1: when starting round 2, do we ch 2 before starting the 2 fpdcs in every dc?  Or do we just do a quick slip and begin the fpdcs?  Round 2 seems like a foundation round...so I'm wondering if it needs the ch 2.  I'm guessing no, because the stitch count doesn't reflect the addition of two chains?  OR.......
Silly queston #2: Or does the ch 2 count as a dc?
Silly question #3:  Are we slipping to the top of ch 2 at the end of/beginning of every round?
I'm a bit baffled, as you can see....let's just say I made it to the end of round 4, and then realized I had one too many dcs!!
(~~woman spinning in circles tearing her hair out~~) - yes, you can laugh at me.  Grin
I have restarted this hat 3 times...I'm determined to get it right for heaven's sake!  After seeing the pics of the SMART CROCHETers that figured this pattern out, I can't help but feel like an idiot!!!  By the way, your hats are beautiful!!
Any help would be appreciated...

::::slapping head::::

Oh. My. LORD.
I figured out what I did wrong.  My kids took the first page of the pattern off of the end table where I had left it, and I was looking at the BABY sized pattern, which has a different # of stitches.
ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGh hhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

All that lost work, for nothing!
Now I need to find the first page again.
