  7. @crystina and betts....for row 2 of the pattern it says to "round 2 and all even rounds" are you doing this round again after every odd/increasing round? this is where the length comes from in the pattern...Hope this helps. I made one this morning and had no trouble.

  12. Is there any way to use this pattern for my baby on Christmas this year? In size 9-10 months or would I have to shrink the pattern?

  13. Not sure what I did wrong but I ended up with a hat that was HUGE! I had to put a ton of decreases in once I started the white part just to try and make it small enough to wear. I used the right hook and thought I followed the instructions correctly so I'm not sure where I went wrong. Mine didn't even fit an adult much less a child.

  17. I just found your pattern. Thank you for sharing. I am going to adapt the pattern to fit my husband and add it to a ballcap. I bought him a ballcap Santa hat before and he loved it until it was no longer useable.

    1. Every even # row, you do 1 dc in each stitch around. The odd # rows are where you increase.
