Round 2: 2 dc in each st around (20 dc), join to ch 2 sp with sl st, ch 2.

  1. Hello, I am wondering how I could change the pattern to make a larger hat, say, for a one year old? Thank you!

  2. I love all the hats! Will go make some now! Keep them coming!

  3. Love your patterns! The chunky baby hat works up great!

  4. what are your suggestions for making this pattern for a 6 month old?

  5. Use the six month fuzzy bear hat pattern and leave off the ears. You can find it in the labels under 6-month.

  6. This is the best hat pattern I've tried! So fast and easy!! Thanks for sharing! !

  7. THANK YOU!!!! I have been looking for a simple baby hat to make with chunky yarn and this is PERFECT!!!! I've made THREE already :)

  8. Hi Alli I have a question. When I finish row 4 I come to the chain 2 from row 3. Do I make a slip stitch to connect and then chain 2 like the end of row 3? If I just try to do a straight DC I have a big hole. Thanks for helping the handicapped!
