  1. i don't see any measurements at all on this an adult hat or child's...what is the guage on this?

  2. I think your instructions and videos are quite helpful to a beginner like me. Thanks for all your efforts.


  3. My blog is

  4. Hi Teresa! I wanted to let you know I LOVE your videos and have successfully made a baby beanie and your cute Mary Jane Slippers this week and wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your blog and youtube videos!

    I wrote a post about your great videos on my blog and I have pictures of my hat and slippers if you want to take a peak!!

    Thanks again! You are awesome!!


    Following the Footsteps

  5. Hi Teresa.
    Just wanted to let you know that I found your blog and this beanie hat pattern on Sunday afternoon. I immediately left the house and went to my local wool shop where I bought some chunky wool and the 9mm hook needed to make it.
    When I got home I made two hats which used up my two balls of wool exactly!
    Last night I made the hat again in a DK wool with a 4mm needle, this produced a cute baby sized hat.
    I think this pattern is brilliant and so easy to follow for an addicted beginner like me!
    Thanks so much for being a fountain of knowledge and for listing everything in such an uncomplicated manner. Your videos are also fab.
    Can you do some equally easy patterns for babys mittens?????
    Thanks, Jeni x

  6. Greetings,
    I love this cap. It's easy enough to make that you can start to play with striping & color for a different look to really make it your own!


  7. that's cap really beautifull. i want to try that pattern. thanks

  8. Hi Teresa! I like the way this pattern worked up in the picture. I have some bulky Red Heart yarn I want to use for this pattern. I tried working it up and the hat was too small to fit over my hair (I have big hair and a big head). I suppose I should make this to fit a man's head. Do you have any tips on how to make this larger? Should I just continue increasing? Thank you for your help!

  9. would love to know how to make this great hat for a baby... im guessing smaller hook and thinner yarn?? help please :)
    ps love love love the tutes :)

  10. Thank you so much for this tutorial... made this hat for my little baby girl :) I am wanting to make one for my 3 yr old but am having a hard time coverting this over. I used a size H needle and medium weight yarn... I would like to use these same supplies.. any suggestions ??? Thank you again so much.

  11. Just made this cute hat for my baby girl! Turned out adorable! I am wanting to make one for my 3 yr old son but I am having a hard time converting this pattern. I used a H size and medium yarn. any suggestions? Thank you again.

  12. I'm actually making this hat right now and I've realized that it's not going to fit on my head. Is this a child's size hat? Would I just expand it to 56 SC around to make it bigger? I really love the pattern and I think I will make hats for my nieces too!

  13. I am not sure what I did, but my hat was HUGE!! Gonna try to shrink it in the wash, but I lobe the design. Thanks for the video! :)

  14. I think you made a typo. for the brim you say to sc in the next 20? sc. and then you should end up with 15 sc? i watched your video and you only do 15. so im thinking its a typo. Just thought id let ya know. Other wise the pattern is written very well. and I love the hat!!! im going to have to make many more in more colors!

  15. Theresa: First, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! You are truly awesome for having all your work and toots online for us! Second, I have tried to make this hat 3 times. I follow your instructions to the best I can (I cannot understand how on earth the hat can have 22 rows. . .it is over my eyes at 12!) and I am confused on the brim. It says to sc 20 stitches but in () it shows that there should be 15 stitches?? I'm so confused. I LOVE THE HAT; but I need help. I thought about trying a smaller hook, but with the chunky yarn the N hook is really the smallest I feel comfortable with. (and I also LOVE the chunky yarn so I don't want to go with a smaller ply either.) Any suggestions??

  16. Thanks so much for the wonderful youtube video...I just made not only my first crochet hat with yarn that I had here at the house but sent Hubby to the store to get some of the fluffy stuff so that I could make one for real!

    I just learned to crochet a few weeks ago from my Great Aunt and Grandma. I am in the just fallen in love stage and have such a great time finding all the great resources online!

  17. I have made this hat in child size and women's size. Any suggestions on a man size?

  18. This hat is child size.I want to make this hat = women's size. Help me! Thanks.
