Crochet Newborn Puff Stitch Beanie

I followed this blog but they didn’t explain a few things. They said to follow this blog but didn’t explain how exactly to make it smaller. I counted the stitches and I think it’s the following. Now I have to frog everything and try again. I’m writing it down so I can do this pattern again in the future.

For the rim: I’m going to do try chaining 8 instead of 10.

Then 34 sc around the hat starting from the seam after you finish the sl st.

For the top of the hat (starting from the bottom but on top of the rim): I’m going to do 5 rounds for the baby hat and slowing decreasing each round.
