  1. Awesome hat! And so appropriate for the season!

  2. I need help on the pattern for your baby brimmed beanie!!! I saw that several comments addressed the same issue I'm having when I get to round 4 the stitch count doesn't match up. I'm VERY new to crocheting so I don't know if I am just doing something wrong or not, but it seems several other ladies had similar issues...could you help please! Thanks. : )

  3. It could be a typo. I will go back and check. I don't get the messages from the comments and can't always go back and check every single pattern for a comment. If you send me messages through the email it's better. :) I will go check tho.

  4. If you want to make you free flash website I think you need free flash templates .
    Free flash intos is of the best free flash effects that you need.
