  3. The pattern only goes through Round 11. Doesn't the ruffle have more than one round? Or do I just repeat that round until it is as wide as I want, but it doesn't say.
    Thanks for any help because I have started and am almost to that point. Thanks.

  8. I just wanted to say thank you. I made one in the time it took for my son to have a nap. (it's not for him .lol.) I did the main part in white and the ruffle in hot pink and it looks great. Thanks again for all your wonderful work.

  10. Thanks so very much for this darling pattern. I just finished it this afternoon. I made the hat white with an aqua ruffle to match a sweater I made for a 2 year old girl. Your directions, along with the left handed tutorial, made it so easy. You are a wonderful teacher!
