When you start the rounds, I have more stitches for the medium size than stated...48..when should I start decreasing the stitches to reach 48...I love this pattern and how it is looking...just having a hard time when the number of stitches when I start the rounds...

Hi dmetzs 3006033, are you referring to the first round after joining the ribbing section? If so, I would recommend re-measuring the ribbing section and checking your gauge for that section of stitching. If your tension is too tight, you may have too many stitches in the ribbing section, leading to too many stitches in the rounds. I hope this helps! - Laura, editor of AllFreeCrochet

Here is an all purpose unisex slouchy (but not too slouchy) hat for both men, women, and kids alike. Sizing goes all the way up to fit an extra large. I wear a medium myself -) If I were to attempt to make one for myself I would probably print out the pattern and reformat it to be a line by line instruction instead as the way it is written is a little too much for me. Just want it easier to read, that's all.

I see the scarf pattern but not the hat pattern.

Hi there! I've updated the instructions---this is the hat pattern, not a scarf pattern. Thanks for pointing this out!
