  1. Aww! Thanks Jennifer 🙂 For trying the pattern and for letting me know 🙂 Have a great week! Rhondda

  2. This hat is so adorable!!! I made this yesterday. Not sure if mine has the diagonal look like this one does had a hard time on Row 8. But none the less I made it work and the edging really made this hat. I will be making more had such FUN. Thanks Rhondda your patterns are unique very pretty.

  3. hello i´m mexican, love this texture but, in spanish, how write half double crochet?, is similar punto alto ?

  4. Thank you! I’m happy you like the design 🙂 Congratulations on the upcoming arrival of your newest Granddaughter 🙂

  5. I just love this baby hat! Can’t wait to try this pattern for my newest granddaughter, due Sept.26!

  6. Thank you Magruth 🙂 It is good to know how large the hat is using different types of yarn. 🙂 The yarn I used was much lighter than worsted weight – do you mind sharing the dimensions you ended up with when made in worsted weight? I’d love to have them here in case someone else wants to try the different yarn too!

    Thank you again,

  7. Just made this hat, I think it will fit a three year old, lol, I used leftover worseted yarn, probably should have used a smaller needle 🙂 but it is still LOVELY!! I want to make many more . Thank you soo much for sharing.

  8. I’m so happy it turned out for you 🙂 It is one of my favourite hats – I can’t wait until my niece is old enough to wear it – she is due this summer so I have a little while to wait still!

  9. Thank you so much for this pattern. It turned out absolutely adorable! Dainty definitely descriobes this hat. It actually fits my 11 month old.

  10. Hi Mary, Thank you so much! I apologize for not responding sooner – I only just figured out how to turn on comment notifications! I’m going to need to add reminders for the Friday Party! Adding to my calendar now! Thanks! Rhondda
