-You can check out yarnsub.com to see yarn substitutions that are equal to the yarn I used in this project.
-There is no video tutorial for this pattern yet.
-To make this hat smaller, I would recommend leaving off the last round of the square and sewing the squares together after round 3 of the squares are done. OR you could use a smaller crochet hook to make the stitching tighter and smaller.
