  1. I’m making this hat for Chritmas project to donate to my favorite home for homeless children.

  2. Stephanie Galliher says

    I followed the instructions, however when I finished and tried to put the hat on my 12 month old daughter it was way too narrow and wouldn’t even fit over the top of her head. 50 rows, right? Any helpful input would be greatly appreciated.

  3. Awesome hat pattern. I’m making 100 of them to donate to the homeless shelter in my area.

  4. I love this pattern. Its the first I’ve made. Thanks 😀
