  1. Read the pattern carefully before starting.
  2. This pattern is worked sideways and then seamed together at the end.
  3. The beginning ch 1 does NOT count as a stitch.
  4. Numbers in ( ) at the end of the round indicate the number of stitches in that round.
  5. Not all heads conform to sizes by age; please measure for a more accurate fit. If you wanted to adjust the size of your beanie, you may add/deduct two rows and end with Row 2. If you want your beanie to be slouchy, add a few more chains to the foundation chain.
