Gauge is very important for proper sizing of the hat. Please take the time to check for proper gauge and adjust yarn or hook(s) size as necessary. Many users of this pattern have noted they needed to go down to an H or G hook to get gauge and/or have had to use different sized hooks for each gauge measurement.
Ribbing gauge: 8 ribbing repeats (16 rows) = 4”
Crown gauge: 14 sc and 16 rows = 4”

I hope someone is still monitoring this thread. I’m just not wrapping my head around the 90 degree turn? I’m a visual learner, I’m hoping you have a video somewhere? I bought this pattern on Raverly.
Hello, and thank you for your purchase. I don’t have a video but a picture a clock. If the hour hand is on the twelve, 90 degrees would e when the hour hand is on the three. Another example, if you have a piece of paper that prints portrait, then turning it landscape would be 90 degrees. I hope this helps.

can you tell me what turn 90 degrees means? I bought this pattern but it may be too advanced for me
Turn 90 degrees just means to turn on its side. 90 degrees is a right angle, or the corner of a piece of paper, from straight up and down to laying flat. I also sent you an email. Please let me know if you didn’t receive it, CrochetByDarleenHopkins@gmail.com
