How can I make the type bigger when I print the pattern. Thanks

I really like the hat but tried to make it but the Red Heart yarn (Buttercup) was it fuzzy because it was hard to work with? can you let me no the exact yarn you used for the crown, because that is all the Red Heart (Buttercup) they had! thanks RR

Yes and yes, I would crochet this hat. I believe there is no such thing as too cute for a baby.

I have previously made 2 different color combos, of the cupcake hat, I did not find it difficult and it turned out adorable, I would definately make it again!!!

If you go to the Red Heart website, there is a knit version, too.

Unfortunately I don't know how to crochet and really don't care to learn. Is there a pattern for us knitters to use? I really think that this is adorable and would love to make some for the hospital that I knit baby hats for.
