An excellent introduction to the slip-stitch technique, this cap is worked in the round from the bottom up. Traditional Bosnian slip-stitch patterning uses front loop and back loop stitches to create their texture.

tried this with an "n" hook and still came up short on the circumference.  wondered if beginning chain of 48 might be a misprint or can my technique be that far off?  i am not a tight crocheter and made the stitches qute loose, as suggested.  of course, i can increase it on my own to make the pattern work, but since it's my first attempt at slip stitch crochet, i wonder if i will always have this problem if i attempt other projects?  love the hat.

Please can you tell me if the above hat, cinnamon colour, girl with plait, is available as a free download?

I am new to this site. Are only some of the patterns available as a free download?  Will patterns in current magazines become free once the magazines are out-of-date? I really like this hat and would like to try it.  Thankyou.

I agree with daryl8.  48 stitches cannot be the correct amount for the foundation chain.  I have even tried doubling the yarn to get gauge and it's still too small.  I can't seem to locate an erata page for this hat, it's awfully cute, but I can design my own hat in the time it will take to make adjustments to this pattern.
