I love this hat but can't seem to follow your directions very good. This is what you have. Crochet chain 10, connect into circle. Round 1: 12 dc Roound 2: 2 dc in the same st = 24 dc Rounds 3-10: dc, add 7 sts evenly in every round. There should be 80 sts in the 10th row. Rounds 11-24: all dc Rounds 25-26: Single Crochet rib. Tie off.
You replied to another person to chain 3 after you joined with slip stitch. And what does this mean? Rounds 3-10: dc, add 7 sts evenly in every round
You can start from ch 8, if 10 seems to be large. Yes, you should slip stitch to connect each round and ch 3 at the start of each round. To use thicker yarn, you'll probably need less rounds. Anyway, it is possible to try the hat on to make sure it is the correct size.
I just finished this hat using a worsted weight merino wool/cashmere/microfiber yarn, size D hook, and didn't slip stich or chain at the end/beginning of the next round, just worked in a spiral. I wanted a smooth transition between rounds and no noticeable line where the rounds connect. Use a stitch marker for the end of each round. It would be easier to count stitches if the increase was 6/row rather than seven. Because of the worsted weight yarn, I eliminated the last six rows of double crochet,and the hat fits fine with two rows of the crochet rib. For the ruffle I did the first row in worsted weight then three rows of a variegated mohair. It looks fine. I made this as a chemo cap for a neighbor.
I don't understand the Single Crochet Rib instructions. It says to double crochet on row 1 and then row 2 also has dc/rf (around front) what does this mean? Only dc in the front - then it says dc in back? Also says repeat row 2 when there are only two rows (rows 25-26)?
