Surprisingly huge

Even though I have a large head, went down a hook size, checked my gauge twice, tore out 20 rows, and followed the directions for the small size, and crocheted very tightly, this still was so big that it’s laughably huge and virtually unwearable. I can’t figure out what I did wrong, I am an experienced crocheter and have done these kind of things before, so I’m baffled. I put an hours of work on this, even going to the hardware store and purchasing the wire rope—and now I won’t be wearing it so I’m disappointed frankly. My hat’s off, pun intended, to anyone who made this pattern and it came out right. I’m sure the fault is mine, but I am probably never going to attempt something like this again.

Hello - we're sorry that this project didn't turn out as envisioned! Sometimes with slippery tape yarns like this changing the material of your hook can make a difference in the gauge. A metal hook might give you a looser gauge than a plastic hook, which in turn might give you a looser gauge than a bamboo hook. If you do decide to give it another try we suggest using a bamboo hook and seeing if that reduces the hat size.

Love it!

I am a beginner and this pattern was so easy to follow and turned out beautifully! I've received so many compliments :)

Easy and stylish!

This pattern was very easy and I love the yarn. I needed something light and breezy for summer. This fit the bill perfectly.

Hat's Entertainment!

I bought the kit for the fedora but in between getting the pattern & receiving the yarn, I used up some wool from my previous order which was part of a Mystery Box. Couldn't believe how quickly it all came together. The hat was just right. Haven't used the rewind yarn just yet but it feels lovely and will make a second fedora in no time at all.

Looking forward to getting started on this hat. Hope to update positive results soon.
