what if i what a brim on the hat

Crochet Jewel said...

you do a chain 3 to start, then front post, and then back post, alternate between the two of them and repeat again for the next rounds

Jackie Austin said...

do i start at row 14 or 13

Crochet Jewel said...

that depends how big you want the brim to be, either is fine

I find your instructions and crocheting style easy to understand. My ??? Is: I want to crochet a beanie for a toddler. So I make the first 5 rounds the same way than an adult beanie? How many double crochet rounds and no increase?Thanks for your answer

Crochet Jewel said...

about 6 more rounds of dc no increases

Carmen Estrada said...

My lo is 3 but her head is a little big. How many rounds on the childs hat minus increases?

Crochet Jewel said...

6 rounds

Dani said...

Is it normal to see the seam where you move up a row? I feel like there is a decent size hole where I stitch 3. Am I doing something wrong or is that normal? Thanks so much! Ps love your stuff :)

Crochet Jewel said...

yes that is normal but if you dont like that hole, then you could do a chain 2 instead

I got Red Heart yarn, but maybe the wrong one...mine seems thinner than what you are using. Can you, please specify which yarn you are using. Thank you so much. It's a great pattern...and I HAVE to make a Pokemon hat!!! Thanks again, Jane

Crochet Jewel said...

red heart medium worsted yarn, I think 4 oz
