  1. I love this! The hats are adorable, as are your girls. Thanks for sharing this cute pattern.
    Best to you and yours at Christmas and in the new year.

  2. thank you for sharing your pattern, the hats are wonderful!

  3. Thank you soo much for sharing your pattern. This works up super quick. i liked making this one more then the other one i made that was all SC. I am also following you on here and Ravelry.

  4. Thanks for this pattern. I plan on making two for my daughters to wear to their junior high orchestra concert. Happy holidays!

  5. I dont know if this is still open for discussion but I have made two now and bothe time the top is never long like the ones shown on here? and suggestions?

  6. @Crystina, I am getting the same results

  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.

  8. Is this hat big enough to fit an adult?

  9. Very Useful information , this is both good reading for, have quite a few good key points, and I learn some new stuff from it too, thanks for sharing your information.Best advertising Agency in the world | top advertising agencies in pakistan | Marketing Agency

  10. Thank you for sharing the pattern.

  11. Very nice pattern. Can I translate that to Danish and share it with my friends.??

  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.

  14. The hats are so pretty. And I can tell that your kids really love them.
