Rnd 2: (incr 12 sts) CH 2, DC 2 in every stitch across; Total 24 DCs; Slip stitch to the first st just to close the round.

The diameter of these first 7 rows is about 18,4 cm / 7.25 inches. It is L size beanie for adults.
For size XL, make one more, eighth round in which you will add stitches.

Rnd 8: (No more increase) CH3 and make BPDC one in every stitch across. Slip stitch to the first st just to close the round.

Repeat Rnd 8 until you measure 18 cm / 7 inches / 19 rnds
