    Hello
    I am happily knitting along on this awesome hat, and have come upon a snafu! When I did the increases for Row 15, I ended up with only 48 stitches, not 54. Was there supposed to be an increase somewhere in Rows 7-13 as well?

    thank you for the free pattern, I look forward to completing this hat for a friend going through chemo!
