Since a K hook is 6.5 and an L is 8.00, I can't seem to find a 7 mm hook.

Hi there, as long as you use a K/10.5 hook, you'll be good. In mm, the hook range that could work is 6.5-9. Hope that helps! - Julia from FaveCrafts

I have tried to make this hat and can't get passed row 4 when I try to get 54 stitches on row 5 it doesn't come out!! I get 48 when you stated it would be 54 what am I doing wrong?? it's hdc1 then hdc2 all around which comes out to 48, hopefully you can help me clear this up, I really want to make this hat! thanks claire
