I don't know how to resize baby hat pattern.
The pattern I have is as follows:
Hat: Size 6-12 months
First rnd of hat = 1-1/2" in diameter; 8 sts = 4".
I want to adjust the pattern to the following:
Hat: Size 12 months - 3 years
Not sure if you need the pattern so I will give it just in case.
I have looked all over the internet for help and I have found charts,someone said to increase stitches by 2, and to create a swatch to determine how many stitches it will take to make the hat (No instructions on how to determine the stitches. I just wish I could get some help on this. I appreciate any help that anyone can give to me. I would like to make my grand-daughter a hat that is a custom fit.
Instead of trying to change the stitches, perhaps using a larger hook would work. If you feel that makes it to airy looking, use a slightly thicker yarn or two strands of yarn held together. You will still need to work a swatch up to make sure of your gauge.
When I want to change the size of a hat, I add or subtract a row on the increase rounds. Generally, the increase rounds follow a pattern of increases. For example, 1st round has 2 stitches in each stitch; the 2nd round will have 2 stitches in one stitch then 1 stitch in the next (repeat this increase around); the 3rd round will have 2 stitches in one stitch then 2 single stitches (repeat this increase around); the 4th will have 2 stitches in one stitch then 3 single stitches (repeat this increase around); and so on for each successive round until the desired hat circumference is reached. Of course, you need to ensure you end your increase rounds with the number of stitches needed to begin your pattern stitches but this is easy to accomplish with a few adjustments as you go along.
Is there any E-book or any site availabe which provides beginner or complete knowledge.
