    1. What weight of yarn you used and what brand? I am using red heart super saver soft navy blue4 ply worsted weight and my stitches are coming out to thick and bulky!! :(

  4. Would this hat be okay to make with a chunky yarn? I have a 6oz yarn that I want to use, but I'm not sure how it will look. It recommends a size N hook. Maybe I could just use a smaller hook???

    1. The only thing you could do is try it and see if you like the results. You will know right away if it is something you will like. You will also need to modify and use less stitches. Chunky yarn will make the cap much larger.

  5. Hello Teresa! I am working on this pattern right now as I speak.I purchase the Red Heart Super Saver yarn worsted weight 4ply Soft Navy. I really don't care for red heart yarn at all but I wanted to make this pattern using this yarn to give it a shot. My stitches are not coming out like yours, my stitches are coming out very chunky and ugly. They are not thin and neat at all. I am using the size I and H hooks and the stitches are still coming out to puffy and thick. I notice when I compare this color string of yarn, to other red Heart Worsted weight colors yarn, I notice that this fiber much more coarser and thick. Does the dye of the color has an effect on my stitches? I have frog this pattern over and over and for some reason the thickness and puffiness is still there. Should I change my yarn and go with Red heart super soft navy blue or will that yarn be to soft to make this hat? I don't understand why my stitches are coming out thick and puffy and I am using the correct yarn and hook. Any suggestion!!!

    1. Greetings Jianni - Yes, the dye of the yarn will affect the yarn creating different size strands. My suggestion would be to use a larger crochet hook and see if that will help. By using a larger crochet hook, you probably won't need to work as many increase rounds since the hook will make the cap larger. Let me know how it turns out.

  6. Teresa I am using my size I hook. The thickness and puffiness is still there and now its better then before. I don't want to frog my hat because I don't want to start stitching all the way over. I am continuing with stitching my hat in the rounds.Once I am finish making this hat, I will block it and hopefully this will help the material relax and become a little flexible. Once my hat is finish I will send you a picture.

    Thanks for listening!!!!
