Has anyone made this according to these directions? Did you change anything? thanks for any suggestions that you might have.

@KathyBart - That would be great! Please send us any pictures of the beanie that you make and we can put them up on the page to help other readers see the finished product. Thank you! -The Editors of FaveCrafts

Looks like I will have to try this pattern and work it to fit my head. From another comment, it seems like the pattern does not give enough information. Also, if I make this hat and take pictures of my results, will you post those pictures so other crafters can see the end result. Thanks

@Brenda30 - Thank you for your comment. Whenever possible, we try to post the largest photo available. Sometimes, however, we are limited by what we are given by the craft designer or company. We apologize for any inconvenience, -The Editors of FaveCrafts

I wish you would post pics than can be enlarged so we can see the design better. Sometimes it is easier to see what is meant in the pattern or to see what we may be doing wrong. Thanks Brenda
