  1. Perfect for the Maine spring-oops, I mean fall, I mean summer time ;)

  2. I just came across your site and I love, love, love it. The hats are so beautiful and so are the kids:) I look forward to seeing more. Great work!! Mrs. G.

  3. Love 'em! Thank you so much for sharing the pattern with us. (((hugs)))

  4. lets be honest here.... No one shares more well written and good looking patterns than you do. You are a amazing women to be able to share so easily! You could sell these patterns for over$5.oo each or more and instead you share your creativity. I have made about 4 patterns for babies of friends I know and they love them. They always want to pay me and I say absolutely not. Your patterns give so much joy
    thank you

  5. Hi, I have commented on another post Olivia's butterfly. I am from Australia and want to make this for an 8 month old and 2 year old how do I alter the pattern and what equivalent wool do I use in australian ply and hook?? so confused but not going to give up.

  6. Youre patterns are perfect. And your generosity is amazing. Thanks for being you.

  7. Can't wait to try this pattern. Do you happen to know what the circumference is supposed to be on either of the hats?

  8. I'm having trouble with round 5, I keep getting 55 stitches not 54. What am I doing wrong?

    1. It might be that I had a typo. :) I have had quite a few with the kiddos running around while typing!

  9. Hey there!! Love this pattern, I've made five now :) I just posted about my latest one that I made on my blog and linked it back to your pattern :) Thanks for the patterns, love them!

  10. I found this pattern Saturday and made 2 hats with matching scarves for my twin nephews on Sunday... I mailed them out on Tuesday and my sister called me today to thank me for making the perfect hats for her little boys! I absolutely love this pattern!
    Now I'm currently working on 3 more for my kids.

  11. I am so excited. I love using Red Heart Yarn--it's my favorite, because of the price and the way it works. But I am so excited to try this pattern out. I have been searching for days for what kind of pattern to use to make my neice a hat and this is perfect. Thank you so much.


  12. how do I make this for an adult
