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.
