  1. Very cute beanie cap. thanks for sharing your pattern.

  2. So very excited to find your blog! I love to crochet but haven't in quite some time. My BFF is soon to be a new grandma...I've known the 'new mom to be' since SHE was a baby (yikes, how could she 'age' and yet I've stayed the little baby girl will be arriving in Oct...and I'm looking forward to spoiling her with lots of little crocheted treasures! I'm a 'follower' now...can't wait to come back and check out all your goodies.

  3. Your patterns are adorable. Thanks for sharing. I came here from all about ami and am so glad I did. Can't tell you how much I love your adorable hats!

  4. So um...where's round 7?

  5. Good question. I double checked the pattern and realized that the numbers were all off. I updated it. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

  6. I love how this turned out! Thanks for all the awesome suggestions with all your wonderful patterns :)

  7. I'm a little confused on Round 9 - if you want to end up with 40 sts again, shouldn't you have 20 pairs of crossed stitches?

  8. Thanks for having the cutest patterns! We have been asked by the local children's hospital to provide hats for the NICU, again. Love that your patterns are fun and easy to follow.

  9. I think row 4 is wrong. It should read ch3, dc next st, * 2 dc next st, dc next 2 sts*
