Free pattern: Crochet knight hood

As promised I am giving the instructions on how to crochet the knight hood / hat I posted about last week. (he was so proud of his dog picture and having him hold it was the only way he would pose for a photo :) he said "it looks just like a  real dog!")

Yarn: Red heart worsted 4
Hook: USK 10.5 / 6.5mm

Here is a key for all the abbreviations I use.
dc = double crochet
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
rep = repeat
sk = skip
beg = beginning
rnd = round


Ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring.

Rnd 1: ch 2 for first dc, 12 dc in ring, sl st to top of beg ch. 
(13 stitches counting the ch 2.)

Rnd 2: ch 2 for first dc, 2 dc into every dc, sl st to top of beg ch. 

Rnd 3: ch 2 for first dc, 3 dc into every other dc, sl st to top of beg ch.

Rnd 4: ch 2 for first dc, dc in 1 dc, *2 dc in 1 dc, dc in next 2 dc, rep from *, sl st to top of beg ch. 

Rnd 5: ch 2 for first dc, dc in each dc, sl st to top of beg ch. 

Repeat rnd 5 nine more times (or till edge of hat reaches eyebrows)

(Now you are going to make the face opening by only stitching the back and sides.)

Row A: ch 2 for first dc, dc in each dc for 35 stitches, (flip work around to start next row on top of the stitches you just finished).

Repeat row A five more times back and forth with 36 stitches each row counting the ch2.

At the end of the 5th row don't ch2 and flip work around. Ch 18 & sl st to top of beg ch to begin stitching in rounds again and create the collar.

Collar rnd 1: ch 2 for first dc, dc in each dc and all 18 ch st, sl st to top of beg ch.

Collar rnd 3: repeat collar rnd 1

Collar rnd 4: repeat collar rnd 1

Collar rnd 5: repeat collar rnd 1

Collar rnd 6: ch 2 for first dc, dc in 1 dc, *2 dc in 1 dc, dc in next 2 dc, rep from *, sl st to top of beg ch. 

Repeat rnd 6 three more times, fasten off and thread extra yarn into the hat. 
You're done!
Let me know if you have any questions. :) I'll be posting the full finished costumes soon!

Thank you so much for posting this, it is awesome!! I am having a little trouble with the pattern though. I can't figure out how to have 13 stitches at the end of the first round. Once I have done 8 dc in the ring, my round has 8 sts. Even if I count the ch 2 (which are not part of the round anymore) I would only get 10 sts. Am I reading the instructions correctly? Thanks so much for your help!

Hello! I love your site. Your patterns are amazing. I have made one of your gnome hats and it is just simply adorable. I wanted to make this knights hats but was confused on the second round. It says to ch 2 then dc 8. That would make 9 dc. How do you end up with 13? I would live for you to clear this up for me. I am excited to start crocheting!

Super cute pattern. Quick question: Is the collar missing round 2 or did you just mis-number the rounds?
