Notes on Sizing Hats:

  • Sizing hats can be tricky! Check the diameter after round 9. The diameter should be about 19-20 inches (48-51 cm) and the length about 5.25 inches (13 cm). If yours varies significantly, the difference may be due to:
    • Yarn: Not all weight 4 yarns are the same. You may get different results with different brands and even with different colors within the same brand.
    • Tension: Yours may differ from mine.
  • Solutions:
    • Change hook size OR
  • For larger circumference, do additional increases in rounds 4 & 5.
  • If you have questions, please feel free to email me (jcrochet AT gmail DOT com) or ask on the J Crochet Facebook page.

V-stitch section
