Altering Patterns
Is it possible to make patterns 'bigger'?

I've made this hat before, and my mother liked it, but the pattern is intended to be for a baby. Is there some way I can change the pattern so that the hat would be able to fit an adult?

You can if you know how to do the spirals. Just co the correct number for an adult hat and go with it.

There are a number of spiral hats for adults that are similar though.
