  1. Hi Elisa, Yes, the project is crocheted in continuous rounds without turning (or joining). At first when you work the hat it will be a flat circle until we stop adding stitches. Then as you continue to crochet it will begin to round up and take shape into it’s final ‘hat shape’. If your hat is still flat and not shaping into a cup like shape and you are almost finished then you gauge may be off, or you may have too many stitches in the hat. Let me know how you do 🙂 Rhondda

  2. Do you keep going in rounds without decreasing? I am trying to do it but it is coming flat. Am I doing something wrong

  3. Hi Janice! Thank you for catching this! Yes it should indicate to repeat 10 and 11 7 times. I’ve updated it. Thank you for letting me know, Rhondda

  4. Question – On the 12 month-3 years size the pattern says to repeat rows 9 and 10 7 times. All the other sizes have you repeat the last 2 rows. Should this read repeat rows 10 and 11? Thanks.

  5. Hi Roberta 🙂 You are most welcome! Thank you, the model is my daughter Darla 🙂 Have a lovely week, Rhondda

  6. Thank you for the lovely hat pattern.This will be wonderful for the hats I make for our local hospital newborns. I try to make a variety of hats to donate. Your model is absolutely adorable!

  7. Thanks Sharon 🙂 I hope she wants to model hats for a while yet – she is getting older and more independent lol

  8. Thank you for the free pattern! 🙂 I have been looking for a pattern for crocheted hats for children for a Craft Hope project for Kenya and you have a pattern with all sizes! This is awesome:-)

  9. AWESOME hat and Beautiful little Darla Modeling! Thank you!

    Hugs:)
