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

Hi jojosubrbo--Thanks for your comment! You can copy and paste the text into Word and increase the font there. Hope that helps!--FaveCrafts Editors

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

How do you make a pom pom?

THE COLORS ARE DELICIOUS AND THE PATTERN ADORABLE!

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!!!

Really cute! I love it.

Definitely going to make this cupcake hat. So Cute.!

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.

I think this baby cup cake hat is adorable. Yes, I would make it if I had a baby still in the family. Normally I am not crazy about the cup cake patterns for adults, but this is nice. jcg1224

I am totally going to make two of these for my twin nieces! I am going to change the brim from pink to a chocolate brown. We are big on chocolate in this family!

So cute. I would definitely make this and be proud to give it as a gift.

yes, I would do this hat! it's so cute any child would look so sweet, wearing this!

This is super cute & I would make it for a little girl.

It is so cute, and little girl would love to show it off.

Although I usually only knit, I will try this hat for the church baby cap tree.

Of course I would make it!! So cute, and we have to dress them up while they're tiny, before they start getting fussy about what clothes they will put on.

thank goodness for cupcakes!!! very adorable.. will now HAVE to learn crochet in new year.thanks??!!

Love this hat!! Would make it - if I can learn to crochet something other than ripple afghans (which I like doing). Thank you for this adorable freebie!! I'm putting this on my list of things to make for charitable contributions.

Already gathered up the yarn and I'll start making this tonite. Very cute design.

Yes, I think I will crochet this cupcake hat. It is cute and, best of all, different. Thank you for the pattern.

I will definitely make a few of these hats not just for my grand-babies but for those less fortunate than me.

I think this cupcake hat is adorable, and I will be making several of them, as I have friends who are "getting" new grandbabies, and I'm getting a new great-granddaughter in February. I love this site, and really appreciate all the free patterns!
