  1. I made the adult size for my almost 8 yr grandson because his head is almost adult size and I will make the child size for his almost 7 yr brother because his head is not to big. I will say that the big hat fits my head but it seems to be at least an 1 1/2 in longer then needed.

    Can I make this child hat with bulky (5) weight—-how many sts cast on?

  3. Can I use the 4-ply yarn that we have here in the US?

  4. Nice simple pattern, but 8 inches ended up being way too long for my liking. The end of the hat poofs out too far at the back of my 5 year old’s head :( Thinking about unstitching it all and starting again, but it took so much more than the 2-3 hour estimate that I’m a bit discouraged.

  5. CraftBits (Shellie Wilson) says:

    Worsted Weight is equivalent to 8ply

  6. I would like to know if worsted wool is the same as 4 ply which we get here in South Africa. I have never seen worsted wool.

  7. this needs a pic

  8. awesome
