I was so excited to try this pattern because this is the best Bella hat I've seen and I love anything connected to movies - I'm a dork like that - then I realized I'm newish to crochet (I do know how to do Fpdc, Bpdc though) and I don't understand the first line:

Ch 1 or use magic circle, Ch 2

Let's say I'm not going to use magic circle so am I doing ch 2 or ch 3? I'm confused by the separate Ch 1 and then Ch 2.

Sorry, but sometimes I'm a real dummy when it comes to reading patterns. I understand the rest of the pattern though. I know once it gets explained I'm going to feel embarrassed.  Wink

Thank you.

I made this hat, because I love your hat patterns and couldn't decide upon which one to make, and had grey cotton around... the most boring hat in the world, but I know some Twilight fans who might like it... and then I offered it in the current round of the Sweat Shoppe Swap, and it looks like a lot of people wiill want it, so I am currently making another one in white.

I love the pattern! Everyone wonders how you can be so fast with crochet, and now that I make your patterns (I also made the Valentine Slouchy), everyone wonder how I can be so fast with crochet. Hehe, I am not going to tell them that I got behind your little secret Grin Grin
Thank you for your wonderful patterns!

One thing though: I got confused when I had made the 19th row of the pattern and found the hat too small, so I just added another six rows and thought my hat would be longer than the movie hat - but it's not! The movie hat and the hat you fotographed have four back post rows, and as those come every six rows, there must be at least four times six plus rim rows, that is, at least 25.

Wasn't a problem, I had to make another pattern change anyway, to increase the size, so I wasn't surprised I had to make it longer as well.

And here they are, Bella's ugly hailstormproof helmet Cheesy and the cute slouchy:

aww they turned out great. Thanks for posting. As for the bella hat, I have a smaller head than most so it fits me one way but a lot of people a different way Smiley I Plan on making a hat a size bigger using my husbands head so I know how much to increase. I'm so glad everything worked for you. Thanks again for showing me pics. I love seeing what other people come up with Smiley

I finished another one tonight, this time with the increases of your pattern, and it fits my big head, although somewhat tighter, but not uncomfortable. I made comparably loose stitches (but used a smaller hook than you), so the hat is very flexible. If I had used thicker yarn and made it as tight as in the movies, it might have been too small for me. I will make one or two more, then my grey yarn will be finished and I think I will take a break from this pattern. I hope they aren't all claimed in the swap so I can keep one for future Twilight crazy swap partners.

I think the one in the movie was made with 2 pieces of yarn held together.

That makes sense. That must be the reason the hat looks so solid while still not having the blown-up stitches I got with a thick, fluffy yarn. I like the softness of the hat with the thinner yarn, I won't try the two strands.

Thanks so much for sharing the pattern. While (GASP) I'm not a Twilight/New Moon fan, I DO LOVE this hat. The directions were spot on and I whipped one out in no time last night. I can see several of these gracing some Christmas stockings this year.
Thanks again.

To tell the truth I do not like Twilight or Bella, but the hat's a beauty!
I'm about to make myself one in navy blue yarn (100% wool) right now!
Don't worry April. I'm not going to sell your hats without your permission.
Actually, I'm not going to sell it at all. I'm only 13.
