Sorry. I didn't use a pattern. If you check out some of my other projects you will find how to do a simple beanie. This hat is so nice because of the beautiful yarn made by Debbie Bliss. I think I did the increase rows until I got to 48 HDC. Then worked even fo about 8 rows then did 6 rows of sc. But it really depends on the yarn you choose so just experiment and you'll get it right. Hope this helps.
