  1. Thank you very much for posting the pattern using the hdc. I really enjoyed making the hat.

    I used:
    Adult Large pattern—my head circumference is 25″
    4 Ply Red Heart yarn (used abut 3/4 skein)
    12 rows=5″
    10 rows= 41/2″
    14 sts = 4″
    I realize this info is for a different pattern than this one, but wanted to let you know.

  2. Please forgive me! I found the info. I looked twice! before and missed it both times. Duh!

  3. I don’t see any chaining or sl between rows. Does that mean it’s a spiral pattern? New to making hats 🙂

  4. Hi Rhondda,

    I am rather new to crocheting and am still learning all the lingo. I’m confused as to what a Magic Ring is?

    Thanks you so much,
    Carol

  5. I’m going to take a stab at it, does ‘MR’ mean magic ring? It doesn’t say anywhere in the pattern that I can find.
