How do I get the free directions for this hat?

I made one for my grandson so shortened the hat body - don't want it so slouchy for a boy.

Love this pattern up to point of closing as others have mentioned. I will try to use needle instead of hook and see if that will work for me. Thank you for sharing this pattern.

Can someone please help me!? I'm making this hat for my daughter. I'm on about the 5th row of the hat ( puffs), does the number of puff stay the same or should it be decreasing?? And please help me with the top closure! Thank you!!

Hi Crafter 3379905--Thanks for your comment. Yes, the puffs should stay the same. If they're decreasing, you might be forgetting to chain three at the beginning of each row. Make sure you always start with a ch 3 whenever you start a new round. As for the top, your hook is at the back center of the hat when you're done. Go straight across to the front center of the hat, insert your hook, yarn over, and draw up a loop. Then yarn over again and pull through both hoops on your hook (the hoop from the back and now the front). Now the back is connected to the front of the hat. Then you bring the middle of the two sides into the middle of the hat and single crochet those like you just did to the front and back of the hat, so it will look like a star or an X. Continue to do this (bringing opposite sides together) until the hat is closed. Hope that helps! --Melissa

round 3 says skip next puff so I am decreasing

I'm confused about the gauge: 18 stitches and 12 rows is 4'' No matter what size hook I use with my worsted weight yarn I cannot get the 18 stitches to be 4 inches when the 12 rows is also 4 inches. In order to get the 18 stitches down to 4 inches, the 12 rows then shrinks down to 3 inches... anyone else having this problem?

Hi ballgurl-Thanks for the comment. Are you using the correct sized yarn and hook for this project? Sometimes that can make a difference. And depending on how tight you're making your stitches can effect your gauge as well. If you continue to have problems, we suggest contacting Caron yarn directly, as they may even have a revised or fixed pattern for this project. Thanks so much!--FaveCrafts Editors

Thanks for the pattern, it was very clear and easy to follow. I striped the hat body with three colors. The only change I made was I used a needle instead of a hook to close but I still followed the same directions! I also really liked how you used the front loop for the ribbing, it gave it a much softer look!! I think this is my favorite slouchy hat pattern, thanks again for sharing!!!

My issue is also with closing the top of the hat.. It looks too pinching in the sides as described...

I'm no expert, but I will try to answer Melissa and Dakota's questions. On the 3rd row you place the puff/cluster in the space on the row below made by the single chains placed between the puffs. So on that 3rd row I believe the very first puff would be placed into the chain 3 of the row below. You may have to play with it & see what looks better; doing that or skipping ahead to the next chain 1 space. As for Dakota's question the 10 stitches for the band are being worked vertically wheras the 110 stitches are being worked horizontally into the ends of all those rows of 10 stitches. My issue is with closing the top. I just can't picture in my head how pinching the side edges to the middle is going to look. I'd rather decrease several stitches for several rounds first.

I'm not clear on the 3rd row of the hat, do you place the 1st cluster in the space before the 1st cluster on the row below?

I don't understand how you only work ten stitches for the band and then need to crochet over seventy stitches into ten this maybe a typo for 110 stitches and the (9) is then wrong for the first row of the band?

70 stitches into 21 or 22 inches. :)

This look easy enough too make. I'll give it a try.
