Thank you for helping me finish my FIRST crochet project. It was the perfect way to begin my crocheting journey, and it fits! I can't wait to wear it out and about. Now, I'm on to leg warmers or slippers or a scarf...so many projects.
I wonder if it's possible to ad a brim to the hat? Thnx!!! XP

For row 9 or 10, is it normal to have remainders after finishing the last double single crochet? If it is, do I just finished single crocheting it and start the next round like nothing happened in the last round???

do i have to use wool?? can i use carron simply soft eco yarn?
NO! You MUST use wool! J/k, I'm sure any is fine (I'm using acrylic like a n00b), as long as it suits your needs (warm enough, not too itchy, washable, etc.)
Dont feel bad,i used acrylic too. nOObs UNITE! lol

i'm not new at crochetting, butI never learned the vocab and names. What do you mean by "do the counting rows again only modify stitch 8" on step 10?
It follows the same pattern of single crochet, then 2 single crochet in one stitch every 8 stitches.

This looks interesting, but when I tried to get the PDF of it, the box appeared too far off the left to effectively fill in. Please fix that, and I would be willing to download it.
