I'm such a nerd.  I read it but I guess it didn't register with me. So, where would one find yarn like that or what yarn is close to being like that. Right now, I'm using Bernat super value yarn. Anywho, as I said before this hat is WICKED AWESOME!

I so want to make this hat! But I'm having problems. I tend to get confused by crochet patterns regarding chain spaces and such and I end up with extra stitches. Could you please include in your pattern how many chains or stitiches you are supposed to have at the end of each round? I've attempted this hat twice and by the third or fourth round it's all ripply, like I have too many stitches. I'm using the recommended yarn and hook size. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, thank you!


I also ran into the same prob. once I reached like... row 7 or 8 it really started curling like I had excess stitches Sad I'd like to know how many stitches you should have at the end of each round, too. It would help a lot!

Hey girlypirate, what type of yarn did you use?

BeppyCat, are rows 7-18 increasing? Cause that's what I'm doing or is it suppose to just stay the same.  I'm just asking because that back of the hat is looking a little strange to me.  But, hopefully I'm doing it right.

I've never licked a spark plug.

Sorry I didn't post the stitch counts earlier, I forgot to answer... oops  Embarrassed

Rnd 1: 6
Rnd 2: 12 (2 sts in every st)
Rnd 3: 24 (2 sts in every st)
Rnd 4: 36 (2 sts in every other st)
Rnd 5: 48 (2 sts in every third st)

After round 6 there is no more increasing.  I'm not sure why things are getting ruffly for you guys, it was flat for me when I did it this way.  I'm not making promises, but maybe using a smaller hook will work better?

Good luck!

And I don't look good in leggings.

Lurkers and commentors welcome.
Lots of crocheting and sewing and knitting!  Pretty much my life for your consumption.

Okay, so I just finished mine in a light yellow.  I don't have a digital camera, have to borrow from a friend, so I will have to wait to post pics.  I think it came out fantastic being my first hat.  I have been wanting to try a hat and I loved the pattern as soon as I saw it, so thank you very much BeppyCat!!
But I do have a question.  I had some trouble when joining beginning with rnd 6.  It says to skip last dc and join to 3rd ch of beginning ch.  If I did that it left a huge space.  Maybe I wasn't pulling tight enough, I don't know?  So, I just winged it.   I do want to make more though and want to do it right!  It left the V shapes (formed when you dc, ch 1, dc into the ch 1 space) that come down the hat a little askew.  When I get the camera I'll post the pics if I'm not explaining well enough.  Sorry!!

ooh purdy... just wondering how much yarn you used? roughly, I never seem to be very good at figuring out crochet yardages, I have a lot more experience of knitting Smiley

I'm just learning to crochet so this probably isn't a very good project for me right away but I'm still gona buy the yarn for it and then I'll have to make it Cheesy I'll probably end up having my aunt finish it while i pretend that she's only showing me how to do it myself Cheesy

almost forgot to ask....Does anyone know what size metric hook you'd need for this?

It's not that hard of a pattern.  You just need to make sure you count your stitches.  Umm, you need a 5.00mm hook.  Are you from Canada?
