Hi can you please advise if this pattern is in american or english terms... im presuming american ..so sc = english dc ? Before I go to far

Hi there, this pattern is indeed written using American English terms. Hope that helps - Julia from FaveCrafts

seemed ok for me.. did you all check your gauge first? i used cotton and it had shape and fit perfectly

I made the hat and had to modify it because it was too big and the brim isn't right on it. waste of my time with this pattern

Is there a video on making this hat

Made this hat today and it sooooo didn't have any shape. I got to the end of the pattern and it never did get any real definition to it. I'm thinking that maybe stop the increase at row 10 or 11... I would also quit somewhere around row 23/25 as it was entirely too long. If this was a Red Heart Pattern... then I am not surprised, I have real troubles with most of their patterns on a regular basis.

Where is the shaping for the hat? I am on #17 and have a huge flat circle. When I try to form it into hat shape, it is too full. Should there have been some decreases?

its very good but is there any video for it????
