  1. Super cute. And it's so generous of you to share your patterns.

  2. This is adorable! My daughter and I are preparing to open an etsy shop, and we're thrilled to feature a few of your patterns. And a HUGE thank you for the Magic Ring! I've crocheted for years, but yours are the first patterns I've seen that use it. Love it!

  3. I loved this pattern. The hats crocheted up quickly and looked so cute.

  4. I love your patterns! I have a question though - if I want to use a different weighted yarn, how do I adjust the pattern/hook size to still get the right size end product? Example - if you use a worsted weight for the hat with ear flaps, but i want to use a sport/baby weight, what would I change to still gaurantee a newborn fit? (thanks, I'm new to this!)

  5. It is WONDERFUL of you to share your patterns for FREE! I'm so happy I came across your site. THANK YOU SO MUCH! May God Bless you! You do WONDERFUL work!

  6. this was my first hat i've ever made!! thanks for such clear instructions! :) -michelle

  7. Maybe you can help me. I'm VERY new to crochet, and I dont understand what it means when it says 2 dc in each dc. How do I do 2 double crochet in 1... does my question make sense?
    Thanks you

  8. ^^^ Ah ha, after about 10 false starts... I think I get it now!

  9. Love this hat! I made it for my 15 month old daughter and she loves it. Thanks for sharing the pattern!

  10. Very cute! Do you have some animal hat patterns for teens?

  11. When I join in the ch 3 space, I get a large gap, help! I love this pattern!

  12. I just stopped by during my internet search for an easy, adaptable baby hat pattern. I was so pleased with how easy this pattern is to follow. I love the fact that it can be customized with a variety of embellishments! Ears, flowers, tassels, pom poms, and more can easily be added to the finished hat. Thanks so much for sharing!

    And...Dianna, try joining at the top of the ch 3 stitch and not in the space between the ch 3 and neighboring dc (if this makes sense :)This should eliminate the gaping hole you mention.

  13. Awesome and easy pattern! Thank you so much! I do have a question, I'm a noob to crochet, so in row 2 when you say dc in each dc, do you mean in the top of the stitch or in the post? If that makes sense??? Thanks in advance!

  14. A couple questions... On the ears, where it says "repeat twice" does that mean you do it two times total... Or a total of three? Also, do you ch one each time you turn, or only the one time it is mentioned?
