    Came out beautifully. Used 1 ball (50g) of chunky yarn and 60 stitches, and worked out the casting off down to 9 stitches. And the casting off should read *k2tog, k1 across*. I found it confusing written the other way. Ready to make another now. Thanks for sharing this pattern.

    Thanks for these great patterns.

  5. Thank you for the pattern. I have recently become dissabled with cancer and this will give me something to do. Our community has a group that gives out hats at Christmas to children in need so I am going to get started now for next year. I am so excited to make this. do you have the pattern for the flower? I don’t know how to crochet but I have a friend who will help me learn how to do it. Thank you again.

  6. This is SO cute! Can’t wait to try it. I gotta finish all of my Christmas prezzies first though. =/

  7. Where can I find the directions to make the flower? My daughter picked out this pattern and wants it to look just like the picture.

  8. This pattern is lovely and the hat is quite tight-fitting so its warm and cosy. But you need at least 60 stitches or possibly more, and quite a few extra rows for the length. I used a chunky yarn which came out beautifully.

  9. Love this pattern! Made it with one 50g ball of Twilley’s Freedom on 8mm needles. Only took me a few hours and looks great, thanks : )

  10. Is this pattern supposed to be made with regular needles and stitch up at the edges or with double pointed needles knitted in a circle?

  11. I agree with the commenter about the length of the hat. I love the stitch but it was much too short and I am extending it to be probably about 30 rows before the decrease pattern. Without the extension it barely covered the top of my head! Otherwise, I love the stitch and how easy but elegant it looks when completed.

  12. this is soo beutiful but what type of yarn over are you supposed to do purl,knit,or purl knit yarn over?

  13. Fast, easy, fun project. WAAYYYYYYYY too small, though. Needs more rows of the lace work and it needs extra stitches. I have a very small head and I couldn’t fit it. Making it again, this time, with some modifications. I think I’ll try 25-30 rows of the lace work.

  14. Pretty!!!

  15. I love it! It has a very modern and fashion forward look. The colours scream fashionista! Can’t wait to make it myself!
