Lelia, Try wet blocking to right shape.

Lelia 25.09.2010 - 23:12:

Hi again, thanks for the previous tip, it worked out well. Just want to know how to avoid the top of the hat from taking a pointed shape. When I'm finished it looks pointy at the top instead of flat/round. Please advise. Thanks.

DROPS Design 16.09.2010 - 20:18:

Leila, you are doing it on every round. Check out the tutorial video linked from the pattern. It's showing you how it's done.

Lelia 16.09.2010 - 18:21:

Hi, when it asks to replace the 1dc with a 3 chain, do you do for only round 3 and 4? If I keep doing it, I end up with a row of larger holes/circles down the middle of the hat. Please advise asap. Thanks.

The shawl is really beautiful! The wool is also very nice, soft and pretty. I would recommend this pattern to anyone, it is easy and the result is wonderful. It is also a lovely present! Thanks for this pattern, I love it!

After 7 rounds without inc the hat is ready and you cut and fasten thread.

Tawana 26.01.2009 - 15:19:

How do i finish the hat pattern after doing the 7 last rows? It does not line up evenly. Do have to decrease on the 7th round?

La till ett extra varv på mössan, så passa den bättre.
