Congratulations! This is a nice design, but still can not get to finish it due to abbreviations. It is possible to give instructions for an easier way, just for starters! Thank you.

Felicitaciones! Este es un bonito diseno, sin embargo aun no logro terminarlo debido a las abreviaturas. Es posible dar las instrucciones de una manera mas sencilla, solo para los principiantes!!! Gracias.

I have made this hat and it is way too big, but I really want one to wear for myself. Can you help me edit the pattern. I tried to edit it myself and got a hat for my cat. :)

ChristineK, I don't know if you will get this because it's been a while since you posted, but you can get styrofoam heads at beauty supply stores (at least around here you can). I got some to use to model some hats I was selling. Good luck!

Does anyone know where I can find a "head mannequin" for a cap I'm designing? I've doneall kinds of searches, checked Rio Grande and other websites but all they seem to stock are mannequins for necklaces; the ones with heads have only partial heads (not useful to me).

Or if anyone has a mannequin head that they'd like to sell, as long as it's in useable condition, please send me a picture and we can discuss details like price.

I'm looking for a medium-size head mannequin.

I usually detest wearing hats of any kind, so I decided to make this. The entire time I was crocheting it, I'm thinking, "Who is going to be the recipient of this crocheted hat?? Hmmmm, Mom? nope the hat would have to be a perfect match to a winter coat. Elsa (sister)? nope, she lives in Houston. Jonathan (my brother)? A varigated yarn with pink and purple (with other colours as well), nope."

Well, well, well. When I was done, I, as in me, tried it on. (twirling on tiptoes around my house) I loved it on me!!!! I wore it nearly every day after I made this--back in March or so.  Niow that the weather is cooling, I may have to make a bunch of these to match my outfits, or wear out the one I made. Don't quite know what I'm gonna do yet, but I DO know I'm going to be wearing it again!!

Hope I made y'all smile!

8 ch-2 sps

that just means you will have eight chain 2 spaces once this round is complete.  It is there to help you use your crochet as a guide to knowing where you are in the pattern and to keep you on track.  If you end up with nine chain 2 spaces you will know that something is off and you can fix it before you continue with the next round.

Hope this helps.

Help!  I'm new to crochet and I'm learning the abbreviations and how to read them, but I can't decipher what something in this pattern means.  Can you help me?  

Could someone spell out exactly what this means....

sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch-5 to join ---8 ch-2 sps.

I understand slip stitch in 3rd chain of beginning.....but then I get lost.

I made two of these hats with a variegated faux suede yarn and they turned out very cute.  I did have to adjust the pattern a little to compensate for the yarn's heavier bulk, but it wasn't much of a change.  I simply made a couple less ch-2 sps in round one and followed the pattern the rest of the way.
