I am sooo glad you liked the pattern! I would absolutely love to see your hat. My email address is jenncrochetbusiness@gmail.com. Also, for you guys that have been so patiently waiting for some crochet flower patterns, I am so very sorry it has taken such a long time to post them. I have been very ill, and thought I would be able to post them sooner. Thanks so much for your patience, and please keep reading my little blog because in the next week I have tons of things I want to post about. I will have some cute little patterns and whatnot to share.

Hi Jennifer - I'm looking to make 2 of these hats for my nieces for the Summer. Do you know how I would change it if I used a lighter yarn? Do I just use smaller hooks with the lighter yarn and follow the pattern? Also, do you have the pattern adjustments for a 2-3 year old?

Thank you! :)

Jennifer Waters said...

I have never used a different yarn or weight so I am not sure what you would need to do to adjust it. But I do know when using lighter yarn a larger hook would be needed to get it to be a similar size as the cotton yarn. I have not yet had time to figure out how to upsize this pattern but it is something I have been working on. When do you need the pattern for the size 2-3? I would be happy to work out that size for you. Just let me know. Feel free to email me my email is jenncrochetbusiness@gmail.com

Did you post the pattern for a bigger size? I would be very grateful to have that.

Jennifer Waters said...

I am still in the process of tweaking the pattern for different sizes. I work almost full-time so it doesn't leave me with much time. But check back in the next few weeks, hopefully I'll have at least a few new sizes up by then.

I just made this hat with intentions to make it for my 2 year old grand-daughter. I increased the first single crocheted rows up to 7 stitches (increased 2x after row 7). I also made 7 rows at the brim of the hat. Well I ended up with an adult size hat. Hopefully increasing by one and using a smaller hook will do it!

Any idea how to add a scalloped edge? Maybe instead of the color change?
Thanks!
