  2. I don't know how I got here but I'm so glad I did. I am so new to crochet but absolutely obsessed by it. I have been thinking about the need to start crocheting something a bit practical like a hat so thankyou so much for these tutorials. Your photos are stunning. I also have 3 girls and live on the other side of the world in Australia. I have one blog called Daylesfordorganics and am in the process of starting up foxslane which will be about my sewing and crochet and my kids.

  3. Thank you for the pattern. Not only do I know that my granddaughter will love that hat - but she bears a striking resembelence to your daughter! Take a look here http://janevdoviak.blogspot.com/2009/04/set-another-place-at-easter-brunch.html You will have to scroll down a little bit to see the picture of her and my daughter. And...we also live in Maine - in Gouldsboro, across the bay from Bar Harbor. Can't wait to make that hat for Tori!

  5. I just had to tell you how much I enjoy your blog! You have some of the most beautiful patterns for children clothing that I've seen! I was thinking that I'd like to make the meagan cap for my nearly-three year old son... I'd have to probably use a finer yarn and smaller hook. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful patterns.

  9. I first made a hat for a newborn with one strand of Sinfonia mercerized cotton and a size D needle and it came out beautifully, and seemed to size right for a baby. Then I made a second hat for my son (nearly 3 years old) and used Sinfonia mercerized cotton, two threads together (which seemed to match for the worsted weight yarn) in a brown color and size G needle. It turned out so nice and when he wears it on the side, he looks like one of the kids from Little Rascals. Adorable. Thanks again for sharing this beautiful pattern.

  11. Thank you so much for this pattern! I am VERY new to crochet and am excited to make this cute hat for my daughter. It is my first attempt at a pattern. I have made it through the first 7 rounds. Yay! :) But I am stuck on the instructions for Rnd 8. Can you please help me with "dc next 2 sts together"? If you have any more detailed instructions for a rookie like me I would greatly appreciate it! My e-mail is jwsmrs@gmail.com...not sure if you need that or would just post an answer here...new to blogs too. ;)Thanks!

  18. Hello! I stumbled on this site when looking for--what else?--crochet beanie hat patterns. I love this hat and tried to make it but I got stuck on round two. My question is this: do I begin the dc in the same stitch as the chain 2 stitch, or do I start the dc in the stitch after that? And I think it would help if you included the number of stitches you're suppose to have at the end of each row. That's always helped me with other crochet patterns. Oh, and I LOVE the fact that this hat is made with WW yarn. I hate working with sport weight yarn and am always thrilled to find cute kids stuff made with WW yarn.

  19. This is adorable! I'd like to make this for my 18 mo old granddaughter (actually, like everything I give her, it actually is aimed to please her Mother, my wonderful daughter-in law!) and was hoping you could suggest modifications for an 18" toddler noggin? Many thanks!

  21. I absolutely love your designs!! So adorable! I just made my first newsboy cap for my daughter (Finally got it sized right!!) and I want to make this one and your butterfly one for her as well, she's one and her head is about 17.5 inches around, could you give me any suggestions on modifying the pattern for her head? or do you just do the increase rounds, then stop at the length you want? I'm using worsted weight. Thank you soooo much!!

  22. I love this pattern! I made it in a soft blue WW yarn. I changed one thing - I repeated row 8 instead of doing straight DCs for row 9. I wanted it to have more of a newsboy cap look since I'm making it for a little boy. I also left off the strap. It turned out awesome and was soooo easy! It only took me a couple of hours. This is one of my new favorite patterns.

  23. I love the hat in the pictures. I made it with WW cotton (Lilly's Sugar & Cream) and used an I hook but it still turned out too big and too floppy. So I have given it a heavy starch treatment and right now it is drying on a styrofoam wig head, though the hat is too big for the wig head. In a couple of days we'll see if the starch solved the floppiness problem. I'm thinking of adding a drawstring to it to make it fit a child-size head.

    And "dc next 2sts together" of 8.

    Is there anyway you can email me a little better explanation?

  35. Thanks for this awesome pattern. Those struggling with sizes, I use a 5.0hook for toddler, 5.5 for child, and 6.0 for teen/adult. For the infant sizes you can leave out the final round of increase and then the 5.0 should equal 0-3, the 5.5= 3-6 and the 6.0= 6-12. Though on the infant sizes you then need to adjust the band and visor size. Hope this helps! It has worked for me :).

    ReplyDelete
  67. It depends on your head, but mine is 23.5"! Some patterns can be altered simply by using a bigger hook or chunkier yarn. It's really trial and error. Others, you need to add more increase rows. I think you add them here...

    Rnd 6) ch2, 2dc in first st, * dc in next 4sts, 2 dc in next st, repeat from * around, st st to back loop of first dc

    and then it would be something like
    Rnd 7) ch2, 2dc in first st, * dc in next 4sts, 2 dc in next st, repeat from * around, st st to back loop of first dc

    then continue from the original Rnd 7.

    My son's head is 21.5" already at 13 months old lol. I'm hoping I can get away with just using a slightly smaller needle size. :) Sometimes that method leads to problems in shaping though so adding increase rows will likely work better.

    To make it smaller, I think you could use less increase rows. Like say skip rows 5 and 6 and go straight to 7? I'm not 100% certain because I'm usually a knitter!
