  1. Hi Alli,
    With the help of you tube, and your crochet instructions, hopefully I can make some cute little newborn hats for photo props.
    You have beautiful work!

  2. I do hats for cancer patients and would love to make a hat like this for adult ladies - can you help me use this pattern? Thanks, in advance

  3. Brenda - this hat is a little more difficult to adjust because the sc doesn't increase the size at the same rate as the dc. I would suggest starting with a hat pattern you already use and trying it in dc/sc rows, then looking at how it looks "off," and adjusting from there. Sorry I couldn't be more help!

  4. Hi Alli,

    I found your blog tonight and already finished a hat for my neice who is due in December. I blended your bear and earflap hats together! :) I finished it fairly quickly so I decided to tackle another project... But I haven't repeatedly changed colors in a project so I have a question: do I cut the yarn after I change colors or do I leave it intact because I'll be picking that color to again in the next row? Thank you so much for the great patterns! I'm hooked!

  5. Hi! I'm excited to begin this pattern. This may be a silly question, but do I make the magic circle the exact way shown in the Planet June instructions, that is, use 6 sc as she does? Or do you recommend a different number to begin? Thanks!

    1. I link to her tutorial for you to get the concept, but you should follow the number of stitches written in the first round of the pattern.

  6. Do you have a gauge for the stitches/rows so that i can make sure it is the correct size when completed? Thanks, Linda
