Thanks very much the replies!

I like the thick % quick pattern, its nice and simple and I think I should be able to handle it well enough. Wink
Though I'd love to find some more girly type hats too. I think that would be a good one for my Dad for this Christmas though. (Hes the one who apparently gave me this massive head. lol)

All the advice is really helpful too. I've been worried about straying from patterns perhaps a bit too much. I also have some very large hooks but being their not numbered/lettered I have no idea what size they are. lo l:D

I do worry though that using my own head as a gauge for hats may be bad being I have a larger than average size head; at the same time, though, I think perhaps it might be better to have a hat a little big rather than a little too small.

Thanks again for the help I think might have to go back and give bythehook's hat pattern another go.  Grin

I'm looking for a crochet pattern for a hat to fit my head. Granted I could always try simply adding a row or a stitch or two but I'm terrible at adjusting patterns being I'm still pretty new to crochet...

I'd really like to be able to find maybe even, dare I say, a small collection of different hats that work well for large craniums or can EASILY be made large by adding a row or two. Wink

Help?

(Every hat I've tried so far is much too small. My last attempt was bythehook's bobble beauty http://bythehook.blogdrive.com/archive/91.html; wayyyy too small for my head. Now I must find a tiny headed friend to give it to..)  Cheesy

LOL! I can't read patterns to save my life. What I have been doing is writing them out in plain english. IE writing out chain instead of sc and slip stitch instead of sl st. It's been less confusing so far.

lol!
Wow.. I did the EXACT same thing when I was first trying to figure patterns out. I don't anymore but I still have a very hard time trying to figure out some patterns (even when they claim to be "beginner.") A recent attempt at a "fast" and "easy" afghan pattern nearly had me in tears.  Sad

I would say I'm still a crochet noob but I have managed to make...

some bookmarks, some snowflakes (need to make more, ran out of white crochet thread), a scarf, 4 small bags, 2 pairs of booties, 2 baby hats, 1 pair baby mittens, 2 potholders, 1 chihuahua sweater, a pile of granny squares (waiting to be a blanket) and a chevron blanket which is my current work in progress

Well gosh.. ya know when I write it down it actually looks like I'm fairly experienced after all. haha Keeping in mind though most of that is all crap...  Wink
You've got to start somewhere though.  Grin

I wouldn't mind joining in on a crochet along for beginners. Only thing is.. I don't have a camera to show off my work.. Sad

If I wasn't terrified this was FAR beyond my skill level.. I'd give that pattern a go. Man that is freaking AWESOME...  Shocked

 Shocked

Whoa! Thats freakin' AWESOME!!

Now I finally can do something with the seemingly endless collection of plastic bags from the store! Ack! That is flipping brilliant!!!
(If it helps at all I've been repurposing them as trash bags.)

NOW.. just need to figure out the best way to go about makin' me some PLARN.  Grin

Aw thanks delfina! (pretty name btw!)

I think I'll manage to get it put together completely some time today.. provided I can find a suitable button; otherwise I might have to lookup that popcorn stitch or something. Anywho..

I just hope Dad likes it..   Smiley
149  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: stitch markers for crochet? on: September 20, 2007 12:24:46 AM
Its so rare that I've used stitch markers but when I need them I just use safety pins. I bet it wouldn't be too difficult to spruce up a few with beads or better yet charms (as in charm braclet charms.) You can get little craft store pretties for pennies. I'm planning on doing the same myself whenever I can fit more crafty goods into the budget.  Wink
Ok so its not a very fancy stitch marker idea but hey.. I'm frugal what can I say? Cheesy
150  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Eyeglass Case Pattern Problems on: September 20, 2007 12:02:32 AM
First off I'm not only new to crochet but new to the forum; so, hello everyone! *waves*  Grin

So heres my problem...

After looking, for what seemed liked an eternity, to find an eyeglass case pattern I finally did. This lovely pattern found at http://www.artoftangle.com/eyeglass_case.htm looked easy enough but now I'm completely bewildered.

I've got everything done up to Row 49; its there where things go horribly wrong for me. I should mention I'm only use one crochet thread of suitable thickness I think and not two. Now what I think I'm supposed to do here I've done but I'm not sure...
I think on Row 49 I'm supposed to basicly make something like a picot row with dc, ch, skp st and repeat til' the end which is what I did.

Then Row 40 *cringe* I've had to frog this one several times and I have no clue how to follow it properly. I can't tell from the picture what I'm supposed to be doing here.
Row 40 is as follows:

Row 50: 2 dc in first st (at base of ch-3), *sk next 2 sts, sc in next st, sk next 2 sts, 5 dc in next st, repeat from * twice; sk next 2 sts, sc in next st, sk next 2 sts, 3 dc in 3rd ch of ch-4, ch 1 and turn.

For one thing I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be working INTO the chains of the previous row or in the 1 ch gaps from the previous row. When I try to make this row it seems like it doesn't reach the end. Ack.. I just don't know..  It all looks like gibberish to me.

Help? Please?  Embarrassed

Thanks in advance... bless you for taking pity on a newbie hooker.  Wink


update:
ARG! Don't you just hate it when you finally break down and ask for help and then suddenly the answer becomes painfully obvious? I'd like to blame the lateness of the hour but no.. no.. I think we can chalk this one up to stupidy. lol  Roll Eyes
Sorry to be a bother...
On the bright side the eyeglass case is nearly done now! Turned out a wee bit more feminine than I had imagined. *cringe* Well heres hoping my Father likes it all the same. lol
