Hat height: 7.5 inches (19cm)

  1. Hey! This hat is too cute! I’m kind of confused though about the stitch counts. When I count the chain 3 as a stitch i keep getting 41 stitches instead of 40 on round 4… I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. LOL any help would be appreciated 🙂 thanks!!

    • Hi Erin – sorry it took so long to reply. I had a baby 6 weeks ago and life is busy! 🙂 Honestly, I don’t know why the stitch count wouldn’t add up without grabbing a crochet hook and giving it a go. Just fudge it. It’s not important how you get the total of 40dcs, just so long as the increases (stitches where there are 2dcs) are done more or less evenly. So maybe just do 1 dc in a stitch that you would normally do 2dcs. Hope that helps.

  2. I’m doing good until I get to the ribbed border, I don’t know how to do fpdc or bpdc or what this means, help! Thank ou!

    • Its the abbreviation for front post double crochet and back post double crochet. If you search on YouTube you will find plenty of videos that show you how to do those stichtes. Good luck 🙂

      • I figured out how to do the FPDC and BPDC but I’m confused about the rounds. I got up to R-13 with the 60 DC in each round now how do I start back at R8 with the FPDC?

      • My apologies Linda. That should read R14 to 18. After the 13 rows of dc’s you will work 4 rows of the ribbing 🙂 If you find your hat is too short or long, you can do less or more rows of ribbing to achieved the desired length. Thanks 🙂

  3. That’s the way I did it because to me it looked like that was what how it was done on the picture. Thanks for clarifying for me!
