    ok, I tried this and I think I did something wrong, it did not turn out at all like the hat in the pictures… it is way too wide and way too short. Anyone else have this problem? This is not the first project I have done but it is the first one that is sooo off. Thanks all!

  2. amray2007 says:

    let me check out the pattern, see if it is ok. I did have someone say it turned out fine. I have hdc hat videos, if that may help you and make sure you have the right amount of increased stitches at the end of the rounds.

  3. amray2007 says:

    ok, I did revise the hat some. It does fit my 6 year old daughter. It may seem wide but try it on the child you are making it for and see how it fits.

  4. Mercedes says:

    I am working on the knights helmet and am having a heck of a time getting the 2hdctog decrease on the mask. I’m still new at this and I feel like its not turning out right. Can you give me some pointers or make a youtube posting please. I have my 4 boys and my husband who all want one!
    Thank you,
    Mercedes

  5. Bonnie says:

    Hi I am making this hat right now. I am working on the mask and I am at row 15. I just want to double check the pattern. The previous increase rows were followed by another hdc row of the same number. Row 15 increase to 20 but there is no second row of 20 written in the pattern. I just want to know if this is correct? Thank you so much for the time and the pattern!!

  6. Sharon says:

    I started this pattern last night. when making the first part, instruction state
    “rnds 7-18. *work a hdc in each stitch around,*repeat for 7 more rounds. Slip Stitch”…… if round 7 is the first hdc in each stitch, if it was repeated 7 more times it would be to round 14, not round 18….. not sure if it should read rounds 7-14, or to repeat 11 more rounds.

    thanks!! i’m only on round 9 so i guess i may tell when i get to round 14 if i should add more or not, but i would so appreciate any help!!

    thanks!

  7. amray2007 says:

    That boy is for 3-10 year old, but if its too big, try an I hook, and follow the boy pattern the same way.

  8. linda says:

    Hi was just wondering how would i make this to fit a 7 month old. I made this for my husband and he loved it. He wants me to make a matching pink one for our daughter and i cant seem to figure out the right way to make it smaller..
    Thanks for the help:]

  9. Maria says:

    So I want to make this hat for my three year old nephew.
    Any suggestions on how to adjust it to fit a preschooler.

  10. amray2007 says:

    I havent tried it for a preschooler, but Im sure if you used a smaller hook on the boys size, it may work

  11. Sherry says:

    Hey just wanted to say thanks for the pattern! My Grandson will love it! I’m going to make his Back with grey and trim with red! He’s five. Do you think the boys size will work for him?

  12. Cara says:

    Just attaching the mask to the hat and not sure if I should sew the button on first and then slip through the hole or sew the button on top of the hole? Not sure how to attach it.
    Thanks

  13. Virginia sherwood says:

    Can you tell me how many ounces of yarn is needed for a man’s hat? I am assuming it is worsted weight yarn,correct?

  14. Linda Jackson says:

    I just finished copying your hat pattern and can’t wait to start. Only thing I’m wondering is that I keep seeing some who say there are errors in the pattern. Have they been fixed on the pattern that I just copied? Just wondering if I need to read all post and change as I see them say there is an error or they’ve already been corrected and I’m safe to start my 15 yr old Grandson’s hat. His room is done in Michigan State Spartans and he says he is going to go to college there. He will love this. Thank you.

  15. Linda says:

    What kind of yarn are you using? That makes a big difference in the end result. Maybe that’s why everyone’s is coming out a different size?

  16. Erica says:

    Hello I’m excited to start this pattern I got a little confused. In the boys pattern it says to use a J hook chain 4 then sl st but in the video you are usinga J hook but chain 5 then sl st, my question is for a boys do I start with 4 or 5chains. Thank you soooo much for your help :)

  17. amray2007 says:

    either is fine, just as long as you can fit hdc in the that ring, but I did change it to 5 to match the video, thanks

  18. Marijke says:

    Thank you so much for the pattern! Just made this helmet for my 3 year old, using a smaller hook size and it fits just fine!
    Now I probably have to make one for his brother and father as well. :)
