    1. I do not actually, but I have had a few requests about it and will put it in my books to do a video on how to do an adult size.

    2. I too would like to see a video with step by step instructions for the Adult size. Had to take my work apart 3 times already because it did not look right. How many rows do I need to EW before the DACOF step? I still am not even sure I did the first part right.

  3. I believe the instructions for the adult size should read EW 20 rows not pegs as I tried it with 20 pegs and it came out far too small and unusable.

    1. Thank you for letting me know, I will go and take a look and do any necessary adjustments. Always if you find an error let me know, I am not the greatest pattern writer, I do better showing then writing.

    1. Well I am fixing to be putting out a book that uses formulas that tell you how to go about making a hat style like this on any loom. So I wouldn't be able to tell you how on that peg loom.
