I'm conducting testing for a new pattern in my Ravelry group here - http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/pam-daley-designs/topics/2852866 You can read the details & requirements in the thread linked above, but short and sweet synopsis is that it is a hat made almost entirely of unjoined rounds of front-post double crochet stitches that is completely reversible for 2 different looks (see pictures below). The pattern includes sizes from baby to adult; ladies & men; requires from 2 - 4.5 ounces of worsted weight yarn (depending on size made). Testing deadline is Monday, March 3.
Okay, I am a newbie to this community as well as crochet itself. I just recently (3 months or so) started actually creating items. Here's my problem... Whenever I make a beanie/hat I follow every instruction but my hats always end up looking HUGE but they still fit. I just want them to look normal. I have problems with increasing the "circle" and every chart that I have found about how big the circle should be before stopping increase always ends up looking too big (and sometimes the hat turns out 'boxy'). Does anyone have a correcting sizing method for the diameter circle for sizes newborn up to male adult? And any other tips for beanies would be amazing! Thanks!
