  4. I love the hat but I am confused about the first 9 rounds...aren't they increase rounds? As written it says for example, sc one time .in first three sts and sc one time in fourth st. which is just saying sc around. Do you mean * sc in 3 (or 4,5,6,etc), 2sc in next st, * repeat * around? What size hook did you use? Thank you
