  1. Cute pattern, I luv the button.

  2. Lovely ideas! I also love to crochet - and believe me, i have patterns galore, but I am blessed to crochet just from a picture. Enjoy this craft, cause it is so calming and a good stress-reliever! Enjoy!! Amanda

  3. do not understand from r7 on... how does this become a hat if it is not connected after doing the button flap... i have tried this pattern 10 times trying to figure it out and it is a non connected hat! HELP!!!

  4. You're right, it's not connected from Round 7 on. You will attach the flap to the other side of the brim with the button. You sew the button to the base of the brim beneath the flap, then button the flap to the other side of the hat, thus connecting it.

  5. I've read your response to Anonymous and continue to have trouble. The button flap is part of row 6, right? In the photo it appears to me to be part of the final row. As a result, rows 7, 8 and 9 are a wide open gap. I love the concept of the flap and button but am having such difficulty. Is there any guidance you can give me? I'm sorry to be so challenged with this pattern!


  6. I have trouble with the flap too. I've tried the pattern 3x. I think it's cute but mine looks off. is there only one row of dc for the flap? I wish you would do a tutorial for the row that starts the flap to the ending of the pattetn.

  7. I am also having the same trouble with the flap. It seems from the picture that it should be a part of the final row?

    1. If you see, Row 6 starts with "Ch 8." That's where you start the flap.

  8. Thank you for your quick response! I guess I understand that part. But when you continue after Row 6 and making the flap, you still have 3 more rows to go which puts the flap in the middle of the hat. I must be misunderstanding something though, because that's not how your picture looks. :)

    1. When you reach row 6, you stop joining the circle. Just keep going with the pattern and it should become clear!

  9. I went into the bigger sizes and read how someone solved the "flap" problem. She said "when you start the fpdc INCLUDE the flap." I did that and it worked! The "flap" is now the same width and doesn't look weird.

  10. I had no problem with your pattern and the hat is adorable! I love it!
