Here's that report I promised...using an 'I'/6mm hook and 5 weight (chunky, bulky) and following the pattern exactly EXCEPT using 3 chains instead of the pattern called for 2 chains, this comes in HUGE. Absolutely adorable, but huge. It will fit a 23" head when crocheted as directed. The finished hat is also NOT A BEANIE, but a slouchie beret, measuring 12" diameter, and 11" drop from centre crown to bottom of edge. My husband tried it and as I did it in a dark taupe, it looked pretty good on him, too, so this would work for the men who like a 'rasta' look to their hats. I love this pattern as it's incredibly easy to follow for anyone who can crochet in the round using DC, DCdec over 2 stitches, and SC (last three rounds), and is incredibly versatile. Made up in 3 weight (DK, sport) using a E/3.50mm hook it comes up fitting a toddler beautifully (ok, a little large but she loves it) using an F/3.75 and 3w made my 8yo granddaughter say she felt like a movie star as it comes up a bit more beret like than slouchie using the F hook using a US 7/4.50mm and 4w (worsted, Aran) gave daughter and daughter-in-law beret like hats, and using the H/5mm gave them hats with just enough 'slouchie' to the beret. Erm, no-one wants the huge hat so we're sending that to the homeless shelter. Re the rows versus rounds, yes, where the pattern writer has 'rows', think rounds. Otherwise this is a fab pattern that does indeed work up quickly, and I recommend it as four star, losing one star in rating owing to the confusion over yarn/wool and some of the terminology.

Whoops, forgot to mention this hat in all weights and hooks used slightly less than 154yds/140m. Also, when reading my above comment re results, mentally insert a semi-colon between the part about the F hook and the US 7 hooks. Dunno why semi-colons and paragraphs don't show up when the comments are posted.

I have a number of issues with this pattern but it's so darling (I have granddaughters, a daughter, and a daughter-in-law) I'm going to give this a go. First issue I live in the UK, but learned to crochet in America. At first and second read-through, Im not sure if this pattern is written by a UK or US crocheter for starters, over here the word wool seems covers any knitting/crochet fibre from actual wool through cotton, acrylic, blends, etc. My family members are all sensitive to actual wool so my test will be done using 100% acrylic yarn in DK (sport, 3 weight), Aran (worsted, 4 weight), and Chunky (bulky, 5 weight) to see what results I get - I'll post back with results including size of finished hats in each. I've no clue what an 8ply yarn works out to - is it a 3, 4, or 5 weight yarn?! Issue two the pattern directions uses the word ROWS where it's clearly ROUNDS being made. I also have a bit of a problem with the stitch terminology - here in the UK a double crochet is a stitch known as a single crochet in the US, while a UK trc=a US dc but neither uses a 2ch turning chain number - a UKdc/USsc uses one chain, and the 2ch is used for a UKhtr/UShdc - the UKtrc/USdc uses a 3ch turning. This adorable pattern calls for a 2ch. So I'll try it, but I think I'll end up having to use a 3ch to move onto the next round. Again, Ill report back with my results this really is a sweet hat I know my girls will love if I can suss working it!
