Stitch Instructions and Definitions
Single Crochet Decrease - Insert the crochet through the first stitch, wrap the yarn over the hook and pull it through, insert the crochet hook through the next stitch, wrap the yarn over the hook and pull it through. There will be 3 loops on the hook. Wrap the yarn and pull through all 3 loops.

Continual Round - Instead of joining, work the first single crochet in the top of the first stitch. You will want a yarn marker to mark the first stitch of the round. This is so you know when to change rounds. A scrap piece of yarn or left over tail work very well for a yarn marker.

Modifying Hat Sizes - Crochet Tip #56

There are several sizes of hats that can be made with in a larger hat pattern. Modifying sizes can be a lot of fun. You may even find your own unique design as you are experimenting with different sizes. When making a custom hat, you will need the head size of the child/person you are making it for.

I did a recent example of different sizes in one pattern, with the Pixie Cap. The pattern shows four different stopping points, to continue on with the length of the cap. This can be done with any adult size cap when you are looking for a child/youth size or even a toddler/baby size. There may be an amount of trial and error, with fine tuning the size you want.
