I found a pattern for a hat made with a shell stitch (http://www.anniesattic.com/crochet/content.html?content_id=15), problem is, it's for a kid's size so I'm trying to make it bigger to fit me. The pattern has you do 6 shell stitches and chain one in between them. In the next row, you do a shell in each of the shells and in the ch 1 spaces (in this row you don't ch 1 between shells). From there it has you work even but I need to keep increasing.

I'm not sure how to keep increasing because if I do the same thing as a first row (make ch 1 spaces to add more shells) you end up doubling the number of shells and it gets all wavy/lumpy.

Can anyone help? Or if anyone has a link to a pattern for a similar hat that would probably help me too Smiley

To make a hat that would fit you, I'd just increase the way it said in the one row (work 1 shell stitch in each shell and 1 in every chain stitch), except, only increase every five shells or so.  So you'd make a shell stitch in the first five shells, then make a shell stitch in the chain space, then do five more shell stitches, etc. until you can stop increasing and continue on.  I'd try that or just mess around with differnet increasing intervals until you find something that'll make a big enough hat!  Good luck!!
