I have just started crocheting.....just a month now....and I was able to complete this in just a few hours. Great pattern....easy to follow. I have a grandson coming in April...this is just for him!

I think,its a pattern I can understand . I'm just learning at the age of 80.

On row 11-14 it says to repeat row 10. If you did that you would have 50 stitches at row 14 and then row 15 you couldn't do the last round and have 27 "spikes" I found that repeat row 7 will allow the pattern to have 54 stitches allowing the 27 "spikes" on row 15.

With this pattern & patterns I've printed in the past the printing is so small you almost need a magnifying glass to read it. I know it isn't my printer as some patterns print okay. Is there any way the print could be made larger?

@peainmuskoka: We've test printed this pattern, and the text seems to be printing normally. Perhaps there is a setting you can adjust on your printer? Please contact us if you need further assistance. -- Editors of FaveCrafts.com

I would like to make this hat to fit my girls that are 6 and 8 as well as myself. How would I enlarge this to fit the 3 of us?

i would also like to know how to enlarge this pattern ?

this is a nice and easy pattern...would be very cute with a little crocheted flower on the side, too. Thanks for sharing this free pattern!

For those of you wondering about the beginning chain. It is only 3 chains long. When you hdc in the last chain the previous 2 chains become your first hdc. I think it should read make nine hdc in the last chain giving you a total of 10 hdcs. Hope this helps ,also think that they intended for the direction to read the circumference of the hat to be 17 1/2 inches not the diameter as was pointed out in a previous comment.

For everyone asking how many chains to start: I don't even read crochet books, am a total beginner, but can still see it says, "Chain 3." That is the first chain. 3. It has to start out as the middle of the top of the hat. There isn't a long chain to start it.

Please let me know what the length of the chain is also. If you could please email me I would be most pleased and I lve the hat. Thank you kindly

I too would like to know how long do you make the beginning chain. I am anxious to make the hat but without the length of the chain it would be hard to do.

I to would like to know the lenght of the Chain.

I made this hat in yellow with a white border and it looks like a little daffodil. I also used the border on a matching afghan--it was a little too ruffly so I changed it to "Ch 2, 1 dc in next st, sc in next st, sl st in next st" and it was perfect.

This is a great tip thanks for the tip

You have left all the instructions on jow to get started on this pjroject. Liike what lenght of chain do you start with? Please answer to my email maryannkuhn@bellsouth.net Thank you Mary Ann

Hi Mary Ann, I would like to know if you ever found out the length of the chain for the Baby Blue Hat?

hdc is half duoble crochet- for crafter6999970

what does hdc stand for

RS means right side

for vgirlsmom, maybe it is to make it a little tighter at and rim. I sure would like to answer to this also.

I am confused when it asks to repeat round 10, won't the hat get smaller at the brim because you are skipping the last stitch on each round or is this just skipping the ch 2 at the beginning of the previous round?

In round 1 what does (RS) stand for ?

Lovely Baby Blue Hat. Can't wait to try it. Am writing about one correction. You said the hat measures 17-12 inches in diameter. It should be 17-12 inches in circumference, not diameter. If you draw a circle and then make a straight line from side to side through the middle, that is diameter. Circumference goes around an item such as using a tape measure to measure around your head. I just made a hat for my 1 month old niece and the circumference (around) of her head was about 16-12 inches which is why this simple error caught my attention. Hope it was okay to call this too your attention. Sue

I loove these types of hats on babies and small girls.
