Hi CrazyJanetd--Thanks for the comment. You can find the patterns by clicking on any of the links above. Hope that helps! --FaveCrafts Editor

Does anyone watch Rosemary and Thyme, TV series, via Netflix? Thyme had a super cool multicolor (?) knit or crochet hat with brim & bobbles. I think it was like the 5-8 show. I never saw this series before but I think aside from the gorgeous gardens and houses, we are going to see more knitting & crochet garments, hats, etc. Let me know if do watch where might get pattern. Thanks!

Hi tropicalmoment 5758773, We do not appear to have any of these kinds of patterns. We apologize for the inconvenience.

am looking for a christmas tree hat to knit for a baby

I just knit a christmas tree hat for my great-nephews. The pattern was written for a premie or newborn but I used larger needles 8 and 9 - and worsted weight yarn instead of DK. I found the pattern at Http://www.p2designs.com/pdf/HatTreeElfSox.pdf I hope this is correct since I can't copy and paste like a normal person. If it doesn't try google for christmas tree hat pattern. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

Am looking for a knitted adult monkey hat

to advance for me. Dont real under stand the directions on the cable stitch. Very cute patterns and would love to make one

I'm so happy to receive your mail. I knit and would like to know if you have knitted hat patterns for four needles. I have knitted a hundred hats or more for charity, use a Red Heart pattern which I converted to four needles. I like simple patterns, tho' can work with some complex ones. With the four needle patterns I don't have seams to sew, makes for a better finished hat. Thank you, Dorothy Goodhart
