    I just saw the other comments about the finished size of the hat. I used Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn and a size I hook and it firs perfectly on me, and my head is 22.5 inches.

    Love your Fall For Me Spiral Hat! I just wanted to tell you a little improvision i love to do to this pattern. I follow your pattern exactly, with the exception of the length of the body of the hat. I add 3 to 4 more rows in the body and continue to the end of the pattern. Then I run a gathering stitch (not to tight) starting from the very last row of the body of the hat going upward from the brim using long gathering stitches with a piece of leftover yarn, to the second or third row from the top of the hat. Pull slightly taught and fasten off. Gathered Slouchy Spiral Hat. Love it and so do teens! You have my permission to add this to you pattern if you wish. Best wishes!

    Back bar is also called back ridge look at the front of chain turn it over and there’s a bar it makes things lay flat and neat it’s different than back loop

    • I have not tried using Unforgettable yarn for this pattern but I’m sure it would turn out beautifully. You can substitute for just about any worsted weight yarn. I have worked this hat up in Lion Brand Amazing and Baby Alpaca, Malabrigo Merino Worsted and Lion Brand Heartland. It turned out perfect each time 🙂

  • Hi Amy!

    Thank you so much 🙂
    This pattern is quite versatile so you can substitute different yarn brands as long as you keep it within the worsted weight category. Doing so will make sure the sizing comes out as the pattern suggests.

    I have made this hat using LB Amazing, LB Baby Alpaca and Malabrigo Merino Worsted. All of them turned out great!

    Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable would look beautiful with this pattern. I would, however, approach it somewhat cautiously because it is a thin worsted weight. Just measure as you go to make sure it comes out the right size 🙂

  • Tracy

    I think I did something wrong. I’m up to row 18 with 72 stitches and my hat is so small. I can barely get in over my forehead. Help!

    • You could be working your slip stitches too tight. Did it fit over your head before you started the faux-knit brim? If this is the case, as mentioned in the pattern, you should be slip stitching so loosely that it feels wrong! Slip stitches are notorious for being much tighter than our usual stitches and as crocheters, we have to compensate for this. The other possibility is that the pattern itself is too small for your head. It’s difficult to write a pattern that fits everyone since we are all unique. My hat has a diameter of 8.5″ and I would call it an adult S/M. Hope this helps!

  • Elisabeth

    I made this and it’s much too small for me. I don’t feel like taking it apart cause this yarn fiber tangles and knots up. I’ll see if it fits my bff. She’s 5’1. I’m 5’9.

    • That’s a bummer 🙁 The diameter of my hat is 8.5″ and I would call it an adult S/M. It’s difficult to write a pattern to fit everyone since we are all unique. As I mentioned to another commenter, make sure you are making your slip stitches loose enough because if they are too tight, it will shrink the overall size of the hat tremendously! If you decide to make another one in the future, perhaps you could add one more row on increases to make it big enough.

    • That sounds about right to me. Mine is around 7.5″ but I am notorious for being a “tight” crocheter. My gauge always tends to be slightly smaller than everyone else 🙂

  • Stephanie

    I would’ve finished this last night but I’m a little lost when it comes to the slip stitch rounds. I did the first round but when I turn the work, that’s where I lose what I’m doing. Is there something I’m missing? I slip stitch into the back loop like you say to but it doesn’t look or want to lay right. Is it a matter of “keep going and it will fix itself”?
