Crochet to big of hats when I follow the stitching

Hi, I have a concern or question.
When I am crocheting different size hats, for instance, I crocheted a hat for a male and instead of being size
22in. It was 24in.. I end up doing that a lot, Even with women and children hats.. If I get like a Size 4 yarn and it calls for a 5, or if I i Get a different hook size, or one of the other. What can I do to make it an even size.. I figure Right now for spring it's too hot to make a size 5 or 6 yarn, from the patterns on YouTube that is.. What can I do to make it right:-) please help

Jeannie Aldrich (Confused please HELP:-)),



Everyone has a different crochet gauge... meaning you and I can crochet the exact same pattern using the exact same yarn and hook but yield a different size project. If the yarn and hook you choose yields a hat that is too large you need to adjust one or both to yield the correct size project. If you like the yarn, go with a smaller hook.

If the pattern lists a gauge... check your gauge with the intended hook and yarn before making the entire pattern.

“How else but through a broken heart may Lord Christ enter in?”

~ Oscar Wilde ~


~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

My soul, wait in silence for God only, for my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I shall not be shaken. On God my salvation and my glory rest; the rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.

Psalm 62:5-8


May Thy lovingkindnesses also come to me, O Lord, Thy salvation according to Thy word; so I shall have an answer for him who reproaches me, for I trust in Thy word. And do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for I wait for Thine ordinances. So I will keep Thy law continually, forever and ever. And I will walk at liberty, for I seek Thy precepts. I will also speak of Thy testimonies before kings, and not be ashamed. And I shall delight in Thy commandments, which I love. And I shall lift up my hands to Thy commandments, which I love; and I will meditate on Thy statutes.

Psalm 119:41-48


My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments; for length of days and years of life, and peace they will add to you. Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:1-6

Declare and set forth your case; indeed, let them consult together. Who has announced this from of old? Who has long since declared it? Is it not I, the Lord? And there is no other God besides Me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none except Me. Turn to Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.

Isaiah: 45:21-22


For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with Him. Therefore encourage one another, and build up one another, just as you also are doing.

1 Thessalonians 4:9-11


Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also excult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

Romans 5:9-11


But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus, in order that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:4-10

And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation.

Hebrews 5:9

Adding fringe to a project is a simple task. Cut several pieces of yarn approximately 12-14 inches long (you can experiment to get the length you want). Insert hook into the stitch where you want a fringe. Fold all strands of yarn in half. Using the hook, draw the folded ends of the yarn up through the stitch and pull the loose ends through the folded end. This completes a fringe and all you need to do is tighten up the knot by pulling on the strands of yarn. Continue with this method until you have added all of your fringe. You can trim the ends even with scissors after all fringes are added.

Re: How to write on single crochet fabric using slip stitches.

 << Comments >>

do you have a video on the rest of the alphabet? i'm trying to make a "b" and i'm having a problem with the curves?
Jean Roeth

<< Reply >>

I do not have videos of each individual alphabet written with this method. It's a personal preference as to how you shape your letters. Try writing in letters that have more of a block style.

Subject: Crazy Scarf

Am wanting to make your "Crazy Scarf". Just one question...does the "tr" stitch mean triple crochet?
Thank you!
Teri Hvidsten

<< Reply >>

Yes, “tr” is a treble crochet, also known as a triple crochet.
Here’s how:

Yarn over twice, then insert your hook into the stitch or space indicated.

Yarn over and pull up a loop. (4 loops on hook.)
Yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (3 loops on hook.)
Yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (2 loops on hook.)
Yarn over and draw through two loops.

And, here’s a video:

Re: How to Crochet - Ruffled Edge

Thank you for the lesson on ruffles. I put them on the edge of a shawl, and used the triple crochet stitch and the ruffles came out great! This is my first time attempting ruffles, I love the way it looks.

How to Start a Tutoring Business



Threads N Stitches



This book is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
I've had numerous requests over the years of what to crochet for boys.
Crobots are definitely the answer!
This 96-page book is filled with numerous types of Crobot patterns as well as well-illustrated instructions for the
crochet stitches, assembly stitches and other embellishments used in the patterns.
The patterns are well written, some of the book is written in a small font but the pictures are wonderful. NOTE: This book comes to you with a safety warning regarding the small parts used in the patterns.
Therefore, please use your own discretion as to the age of the child you intend the gift for.

My two daughters were having a discussion about family resemblance.

"I look like Mom," said my nine-year-old, "but I have Dad's eyes and Dad's lips."

The six-year-old said, "And I look just like Dad, but I have light hair." Then she turned to me. "Mom," she asked, "what does Dad have to do with us being born anyway?"

Her older sister jumped right in. "Don't be stupid, Christina. Dad is the one who drove Mom to the hospital."



After ordering a milkshake, a man had to leave his seat
in the restaurant to make a telephone call.

Since he didn't want anyone to take his drink, he took
a paper napkin, wrote on it,
"The World's Strongest Weightlifter,"
and left it under his glass.

When he returned from making his call, the glass was empty.
Under it was a new napkin with new writing that said:
"Thanks for the treat!"
"The World's Fastest Runner"


Told my daughter that I could identify with my grandson's
response on the morning of his second day of kindergarten.

When she entered his room to arouse him for school again
he sat up in the bed and exclaimed, "But I went to school

My daughter explained that he would have to go every day
of the week.

He rubbed his eyes in confusion and asked," Did I sign up
for EVERY day"?


Little Darlene surprised her mother with the postscript
to her bedtime prayer:

"And dear Lord, please send the beautiful snow to
keep the little flowers warm through the winter."

Climbing into her bed, she confided to her mother:
"That time I fooled Him. I really wanted the snow
so I can go sledding with my new sled."

One Mother's Day at church, I noticed carts of little
potted flowers beside the altar. The pastor asked all
the children to come forward and pick out a plant for
their mother.

My children and I had certainly survived some very hard
times, and this special bit of appreciation was just what
I needed.

I was surprised when my children presented me with a small,
bedraggled flower plant. Yet I saw joy and pride in their
eyes, and asked them, out of all those beautiful flowers,
what had made them pick this plant for me?

My son said, "This one looked like it needed you, Mom."


Hurrying to catch the last bus for home, my son and I raced down the escalator in the subway station, and Ben darted into the waiting train. Just as I reached it, the door slammed shut.

Reacting instinctively, I ran along the platform abreast of the moving train, yelling: "Stop! Stop! My baby is in there all alone!"

To my amazement the train stopped, reversed, and the doors opened. I entered the the furious glare of my 16- year-old son and the amused smiles of the other passengers.



I always took it for granted that a yard was three feet.

Then I bought a house in the country and started cutting
the grass.

Now I know better!



The evening of my 41st birthday, my eight-year-old
daughter, Catherine, said a special prayer for me.

She began: "Dear God, please bless Mommy. She's
had a birthday and is getting really old."

Beside me, my husband was shaking with suppressed
laughter until she continued: "And please bless Daddy,
too. He's also at that difficult age."


The minister gave his Sunday morning service, as usual, but
this particular Sunday, it was considerably longer than

Later, at the door, shaking hands with parishioners as they
moved out, one man said, "Your sermon, Pastor, was simply
wonderful - so invigorating and inspiring and refreshing."

The minister of course, broke out in a big smile, only to
hear the man add, "Why I felt like a new man when I woke


I had always talked about my job a lot at home, and my young daughter had always expressed great interest. So I thought it would be a treat for her to spend the day with me at the office. Since I wanted it to be a surprise, I didn't tell her where we were going, just that it would be fun. Although usually a bit shy, she seemed excited to meet each colleague I introduced. On the way home, however, she seemed somewhat down.

"Didn't you have a nice time?" I asked.

"Well, it was okay," she responded. "But I thought it would be more like a circus."

Confused, I asked, "Whatever do you mean?"

She said, "Well, you said you work with a bunch of clowns, and I never got to see them!"



After hearing "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy" all day long from her
five little boys, KC said, "I am changing my name from Mommy
and I'm not telling anyone my new name."

Hours later, when KC tucked her sons into bed, "R.C." (age 4)
was crying in his bed.

KC said, "Honey, what's wrong?"

He said, "I don't know what to call you. Please tell me your
new name. I promise not to tell my brothers."



My friend's father is a locksmith in a resort town. Once he
saw a group of beach-goers park near his shop and dump trash
from their car on his property. As soon as they were out of
sight, the locksmith picked the lock on their car door, put
the garbage back inside and re-locked the car.
