I've made a few of these and was about to start another...might as well join the CAL!

One thing I've noticed with these is that they sometimes look huge, but end up fine after you do the ribbed edge. It kind of sucks in the brim so it looks less like a helmet and fits your head more closely. I have a small-ish head and this hat always fits me when I make it with a J hook. Hope that helps...

I'll try to stop by and offer help too, but if anyone is super stuck they can always pm/email/im me and I'll try my best to help. It is a challenging pattern, make sure you have frontpost/backpost double crochet down before starting (do a swatch to practice the stitches). I learned to fp/bpdc by Nexstitch's awesome video tutorials: http://www.nexstitch.com/v_front_back_post_stitch.html.
Also, I have a large head (seriously it's like 23 inches) so I designed the hat to be pretty large. People with heads smaller than 21 inches might want to go down a hook size.
Good luck, and feel free to contact me if you need help!

I finished mine! yay! I did it with an I hook, and increased once more after the last increase row( so i think i increased to 96 st), then at the end for the brim, i decreased the extra stitches as i did the first row of the brim, and i used a G hook for the brim. it fits.. could b a little smaller tho, but it does fit! i'll have to take a better pic!! Also i used simply soft in chocolate!...

here's a crpatastic photo taken on the webcam for the time being....

Oooh! I really like that color!
I got the first 3 rows done on mine, and then got interrupted by kids, dinner, all that stuff. I'm going to work on it more tomorrow... I'm doing mine in Simply Soft Eco in Soft Taupe. Cheesy

Ok so last night I was hooking along...amazed by how quick the project was going when I realized I had made fpdc where I should have made fptr.

Ripppppppppppppppp! Im back to row 7 now Roll Eyes I really need to read the patterns better. The plus side was that I typically only learn new stiches as I need them so I have added on more to my tool box.
