On row 11-14 it says to repeat row 10. If you did that you would have 50 stitches at row 14 and then row 15 you couldn't do the last round and have 27 "spikes" I found that repeat row 7 will allow the pattern to have 54 stitches allowing the 27 "spikes" on row 15.

With this pattern & patterns I've printed in the past the printing is so small you almost need a magnifying glass to read it. I know it isn't my printer as some patterns print okay. Is there any way the print could be made larger?

I would like to make this hat to fit my girls that are 6 and 8 as well as myself. How would I enlarge this to fit the 3 of us?

this is a nice and easy pattern...would be very cute with a little crocheted flower on the side, too. Thanks for sharing this free pattern!

For those of you wondering about the beginning chain. It is only 3 chains long. When you hdc in the last chain the previous 2 chains become your first hdc. I think it should read make nine hdc in the last chain giving you a total of 10 hdcs. Hope this helps ,also think that they intended for the direction to read the circumference of the hat to be 17 1/2 inches not the diameter as was pointed out in a previous comment.

For everyone asking how many chains to start: I don't even read crochet books, am a total beginner, but can still see it says, "Chain 3." That is the first chain. 3. It has to start out as the middle of the top of the hat. There isn't a long chain to start it.
