Has this style been adapted for a child's hat? I would really like that in a size for ages 5 - 9 years.

God BLESS you for a pattern NOT using a knitting board OR double pointed needles! Whoo hoo!!! :)

Thank you for the opportunity to find a pattern for this hat. I so very much appreciate it. Hanne
