Just made the hat up for my 3 year old niece and she LOVES it! Could you email me so I can send you the pics of her wearing it? I used 2 strands of yarn together throughout and added a 3rd strand of fancy yarn for the last row. Great pattern!

Love the baby items. These are my favorite things to crochet. Is it possible to get copies of your patterns?

Thank you soooo much. I am Italian and couldn't find a nice, simple and... for free pattern on Italian web sites. Tomorrow I'll start before going to the seaside with my beautiful daughter! ;)))) Dominga

what is the gauge on this?
what age baby did you intend this for? (what head circumference?)

Blogger Wormie said...

I'm sorry Brandi - I didn't check my gauge or measure the hat. This was for a very young baby - newborn to a few months. I have changed the hook size though, and followed the same pattern to make hats in all sizes from newborn to toddler.

how can i make this for my 12 month old i love this pattern and it is so girrrrly like me

Blogger Wormie said...

Glad you like the pattern!

It's easy to adjust it to a bigger size. Follow the basic pattern. In the beginning when you are increasing to make the crown, continue increasing for one or 2 more rounds to get the size you need. Then as you start to work down the height of the hat, do a few more rows to make it the size that will fit your child. Then follow the ruffle pattern to finish. I made this hat for myself - just increase as many rows as you need to make it fit.

Hope it works out for you!

Wormie, I love your pattern! It is absolutely adorable. I made it for my niece and everyone went crazy over it. I, too would like to make it in bigger sizes for various family members and was wondering if you could further explain how to do that. Sorry to sound repetitive but I'm very new to crocheting and don't quite understand what you meant in your last comment. Where you are putting 2 dc in every second stitch, then every third, and finally fourth, is this where you mean to continue increasing so that the next row I would put 2 dc in every fifth stitch then every sixth etc.? Thank-you for your time and for posting such a sweet hat.

Blogger Wormie said...

Thanks, Heather! I'm really glad that you like this hat!

Yep - you've got the right idea. You can make this hat bigger by increasing the top the way you described -

"continue increasing so that the next row I would put 2 dc in every fifth stitch then every sixth etc."

When the top of the hat is the right size continue with the pattern doing 1 DC in the back loop of each stitch around. Then do several rows of DC in each stitch around to get the height required from the hat.

To finish the hat follow the instructions on row 11. Depending on how many stitches are in your next to last row, you might have to play around with the pattern on this row. In a pinch, you can always do 2 dc in each stitch around to give a light ruffle.

If you have any trouble you can e-mail me at WormsWords at g mail dot com.

Good luck!

Thank-you so much. It's working great. I've also found that using a heavier weight yarn is making a big difference.

I'm so glad it's working for you!!! Send me a photo!

Very nice pattern! I have a question on the size or the circumference of the head. I am making this hat for a 9 mos. old. Is it okay?

Please reply, Thanks!

Blogger Wormie said...

This cap might be a bit small for a 9 month old. I would use a slightly heavier yarn with an H hook to make it a bit larger.

There are two photos at the top of this post. Not sure why you can't see them.
