  1. Baby I’d like to crochet for was born end of July. Do you have any suggestions for increasing size based on size of baby’s head?

    1. Hi Bonny, after round 10, I would recommend that you increase another round to make it a total of 42 stitches and then continue on to make more room for a large head.
