    I think I will do that pattern instead of the one from my beginner’s crochet book. This is much easier.

    Everytime I practice making rounds, they tend to curve into like a cup. How do I prevent that from happening? How do I make my rounds flat?

    Thanks so much for this tutorial! I’ve watched other tutorials that aren’t as clear or go way too fast. This was the first hat crocheting tutorial that really worked for me. 🙂 Thank you!

    You cap might turn out smaller with a smaller hook so you may need to modify with an extra increase round.

    k i did all the rounds i hope it tubes this time, but is it okay that i am using a G hook? i like tighter stitches so that’s why i chose this one.

    Thank you so much for making this video 😀 I originally taught myself how to crochet, and have been doing it for 3 or 4years now. The only problem was that I only stuck to scarfs and blankets. Haha. Thank you again for the challenge and for teaching me some new skills i can use in the future!

    If you are happy with it, you can modify it how you want to. The top of this cap is pretty wavy. It may not have come across in the video.

    i really recommend her videos to ppl who are trying to learn. im 18 and i learned from these videos. now a lot of my friends want me to make them one.

    QUESTION: is it ok if the hat looks more wavier at ROUND 6 than what yours did???

    can you give me an estimate of how much yarn you had to use?

    Don’t make yourself …
    Don’t make yourself frustrated trying to get all the stitches and numbers exact. Hats are pretty forgiving with crochet. As long as the hat is fitting, that is all that really matters.

    The slip stitch is done through the loops of the first stitch or chain loops. As long as the rounds of the hat are holding together, that will work. You can fine tune your crochet style as you practice.

    It was so difficult …
    It was so difficult to crochet my first beanie. Anytime I have to put a slip knot, I always think “Ok, is it this one? Wait…no, it’s this hole. I am STUCK! Well, I have to count all my stitches again. 51…52..” 🙁

    Thank you. The hat …
    Thank you. The hat will work up smaller if you crochet tight. Using a smaller crochet and yarn will also make it smaller. What you can do to resolve this is work another round of increase stitches. You may have to do a couple if it turned out really small. There will be some trail and error in modifying it to the right size. You can make any size hat with any size hook and yarn.

    Your video was very helpful, Thank you.
    I know you’ve probably gotten a thousand questions on this, and a hundred of them repeated, but when I finished my hat was much too small. It seemed as if it was fit for an infant.
    I do naturally crochet a bit tight, but I’m not sure if that would have affected it so much. I use an F hook, and what’s even more strange is that I used really thick yarn. I’m so confused on how this could have happened.

    ps. You’re a wonderful teacher.
