NOTE: My patterns are free and I would like them to stay that way. You are free to print them out and pass them around but please make sure my blog address is somewhere on the pattern (http://knotyournanascrochet.blogspot.co.nz/) so that people know where the pattern originated. 

Please do not sell my patterns or say they are your own. You are free to do whatever you want with the finished item. If you are selling them online please link back the pattern and give me credit.

    1. The pattern above was made to fit a 7 month old with a 45 cm or 17-18 inch head. So it is possible that it would fit a 2 year old. Would also depend on how tightly/loosely you crochet. I forgot to measure the top of this hat before I sent it off but I am guessing it was 5.5 inches. I work of this chart http://www.slugsontherefrigerator.com/home/2011/10/how-to-design-a-hat.html and use a balloon blown up to the head size to get a correct fit.

    1. No from memory I used Crucci Olympus http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/crucci-new-zealand-ltd-olympus-8-ply. Any 8 ply yarn would work though as long as it is not too soft as the hat might just flop over then.

    1. Hi there, I would do a few more rounds of increases at the top and possibly a couple more stripes. It depends on how tall you want it. Then I would do another few rounds on the brim. I hope this helps

  4. Am I not understanding round 6 correctly or are there a couple of mistakes in the writing of it?
    Round 6: Ch 1, sc in same stitch as ch 2, sc in next 4, *2 hdc in next stitch, hdc in next 4 stitches*around. (54 sc) Is this round to be worked in sc or hdc? This is an adorable little hat by the way, I'm about 1/2 way done with it but when I got to round 6 I just did sc being at the end it said I should have (54 sc) Was I correct in doing that? Thank You! :)

  5. Thank you for this free pattern. I used single strand worsted weight yarn and went up half a hook size and it worked well for me. I was making it for a 4 YO so I just added one extra row of HDC with a few more increases and it went well. I also did a row of SC in the back loops only at the top of the hat (before going down into the first red stripe) and right before starting the Brim to help define the edges a little more.
    Great pattern, thank you!
