Gauge is important for this crochet Christmas Tree Hat.

18 stitches = 4 inches and 9 rows = 4 inches

✓ If you have more stitches in 4 inches, your gauge is tighter than mine. Try using a larger hook size. 

✓ If you have less stitches in 4 inches, your gauge is looser than mine. Try using a smaller hook size. 

Finished Size

One size fits most teens and adults.
