  2. Stop increasing after round 7 and continue on to form the sides of the cap

Making the Cap Larger:

  1. You can use a larger crochet hook

  2. You can make this cap larger by adding another increase round. At round 10, you will do 1 SC in ea of the next 5 SC, 2 SC in the next. (Approximately 65 single crochet total). Round 11-24 will be 1 SC in each stitch around. You can add more stitches or less stitches for a custom fit.
