Have a look at the link on the page for the instructions to fptc and give it a go. It really is a lovely shaped hat and very easy once you get into a rhythm. You just go around the post rather than through the top with your hook. And not much concentration needed because its just a repeating pattern of 2 stitches.
That beanie's lovely Woolly although I might have to lose the trim as I'm making a red and white stripey Man U hat for a male friend.
I spent ages on Ravelry yesterday looking for very simple beanie patterns but I have to rule out anything American or anything with stitches I don't understand (ie most of them) ... although I've just figured out that a half double crochet is the same as a half treble.
If the wool still had the label on it, it will say which hook is appropriate (in MM I think it's the same as the size given for knitting). Using a fatter hook with chunkier wool will result in a bigger hat so watch the sizing - I think Worsted weight is more like Aran, so not as chunky as chunky
I kind of understand the basics eg creating the starting ring and how to do the stitches, the principles of increasing, etc, but now need someone to tell me which hook size will work with chunky wool. I just started one using a 5.0mm hook but the edge was wavy rather than bowl shaped - does this mean my wool is too thick? The pattern says worsted wool, but if I use the chunky will I need a bigger or smaller hook?
