If you have any questions leave a comment and I will get back to you ASAP! 


  1. is there a pattern for adults?

  2. Not yet. That is a great idea! Thanks :) I will work one up today. :) Check back on Monday, I will try to have it posted by then!

  3. After round 1, do you turn the work? I'm confused as to where to start row 2. And also how to fold the hat so the ribs are going vertically as shown in the picture. A very cute. hat, but I'm frustrated! Thanks for your help

  4. Oh goodness! Yes, at the end of the row, you turn your work. (I will fix that right now, thanks for pointing it out!)

    After you have finished your last row, you will fold your work in half so the top of your last row is matched with the bottom of the foundation row. When you seam it together, you will have a "tube" and the lines will be horizontal.
    Attach your second color to one of edges of your tube. This will be the top of your hat.
    Hope this helps!

  5. Thank you! I've figured it out, and it's a great, easy pattern once I did! Thanks for sharing and helping.

  6. You are very welcome! I am glad you enjoyed the pattern! :)

  7. love the hat! and especially the adult size! What size crochet hook did you use?

  8. The size hook used for this pattern is "I". :)
