  1. I need help. I want to make this for a toddler. I need a 18-24 mo size. Will the child size work and if not, how do I adjust the pattern. I really want to make a few of these for gifts.

  2. I used this great pattern to make an earth tones adult sized beanie for the Cancer Crochet Along. Turned out beautiful and now my 33 year old son wants one just like it. Thank you!

  3. I’ve made these delightful hats for my daughter/son-in-law and their 3 children. Matching scarves have been requested. I’d like to incorporate the “contrasting color” pattern at both ends of the scarf. Is this possible since the scarf will not be worked in the round?

  4. Am making two child sized beanies for my two nephews. I am making them in Arkansas colors so they can wear them to the football games or wear them while watching at home. I know they will turn out great. Almost finished with one. Thank You.

  5. just finished one for my 2 year old grandson in brown and tan and it is beautiful. We live in IL so now I am doing one in black and red for him to show spirit for the Blackhawks!!

  6. Our little guys are farmers and hunters so I used camo yarn for the main color and black instead of the bright stripes. So cute!!

  7. I love this pattern especially for a boy. I want to make it for a 9 month old. His head measured 18 inches so I did the circle circumference to 5 1/2. I then did the pattern until it measured 5.5 inches in lenght based on charts I read for 9-12 months old. It looks way too short. I don’t understand. Do you? Has anyone made this in a smaller size. I love this and really want to make it. Thank you!

    1. Hi Barb,
      Not sure what chart you are using but that’s even shorter than what I use for 3-6 months. I’d go to at least 6.5″ Maybe even close to 7″ so there’s room to grow.
      Thanks!
      Katy
