  1. Thank you; this little hat will come in handy for my hospital donations to the preemies'; I will check to see if I need to make it smaller. Just lovely with those colors.

  2. I made the 306 months size, used a 5mm hook and 4 weight yarn like the pattern says, but my hat is only 5 inches tall, when it should be 6.5-7 inches tall for 3-6 months. Did I do something wrong? What could cause this? Please help! :)

    1. You may crochet with a tighter gauge than I do. I do crochet loosely. I would suggest using a larger hook.

  7. Please don't laugh, but just making sure...hdc is a half double crochet. Your picture does not look like my half double crochets, but I am still learning to go from written patterns to the crochet hook!
    Love the look of this hat, and I want to make sure that I am doing this correctly! Thank you so much!!

  8. Flower crocheting is one the things which I wanted to learn. I want to put all the flowers at once in crochet and one single flower in another crochet with different techniques and ideas. You're doing wonderful things. I feel envy of you. Always I want to give a gift to my little toddlers this type of stuffs in their happy birthdays. But I am clueless where to start crocheting. I wish if you could teach me by sitting by my side over a cup of coffee.
