ive been trying this pattern all morning. its my first time making any type of hat. so im not sure if im following the pattern correctly, or if maybe the pattern is a bit off. it seems like its me. or maybe i just have a big head. lol. bc everything is fine until i get to about R13. i think. it just becomes to small to fit my head. and when i take out some of the stitches so it fits its not so "slouchy" any more. lol.  Huh

can some one look over the pattern and let me know what you think?

ive youtubed "how to" all the stitches just to make sure i wasnt messing that up and that wasnt it. so now im just at a loss.

I have the opposite problem - most of the slouchy hats I've tried to make usually come out too big to fit my head.

Anyway, I would suggest that instead of starting your decreases at Round 11, work 3 or 4 more rounds even (like Rounds 9-10) before you start your decreases. That way you can just decrease till it's the perfect size for your head, and you won't lose all of the slouchiness. Smiley

Hope I helped.

thank you. that actually did help. i ended up winging it so i could get it finished and it actually turned out great. but now im pretty sure it was me. lol. bc i tried a completely different pattern and ran into yet another problem. lol.

i havent tried this yet but the girl that works in our "yarn store" said that when her beanies come out to small she puts a damp cloth over them then puts a low heat iron on them for a short  bit and they stretch out just enough to fit her head.  Grin

thanks again for the advice.
