Can you clarify the sizes and measurements for this hat? I see sizes with cm measurements in the tags (5 sizes total; 3- 4 years, 5-6 years, 7-8 years, 9-10 years, 11-12 years), but in the pattern, there seems to be only 3 sizes based upon increases and final measurements. Can you clarify the sizes and final measurements in the pattern please?

Dear Mrs McRoberts, this hat is in 3 sizes: 3/5 years (= 50/52 cm), 6/9 years (= 52/54 cm) and 10/12 years (= 54/58 cm). Remember to check your gauge. Happy crocheting!

Bonjour j'ai terminé les 8 tours et mon bonnet est plat comme une galette. Pouvez-vous me dire S.V.P pourquoi ? Cordialement merci

DROPS Design 16.12.2016 kl. 09:11:

Bonjour Patricia, les 8 premiers tours du bonnet sont les tours d'augmentations pour obtenir la largeur nécessaire, on continue ensuite tout droit (= sans augmentation) jusqu'à ce que le bonnet mesure 19-21-23 cm selon la taille, on va ainsi former la hauteur. Bon crochet!
