  2. Beautiful!!!! How would I increase for a 2 1/2 year old toddler?

    • I plan on adding that pattern, but here’s another pattern I have for the same size you’re talking about with the same stitch – Crochet Monster Hat. There is a pattern there for 18 months to 3 years and the 48 stitches is also divisible by 2 and 3, so it’ll work with the sides of this pattern. You’ll just need to make it about an inch longer than the 6-9 months hat.

      • thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • I love this beanie… but I’ve been stuck between row 6 and 7 of the pattern. I think I did row 6 right, I increased with 2 stitches… on row 7 I work the stitches all the way around— the directions above say to keep stitch count to 42… when I complete row 7, I keep coming out with 44
        HELP!!!!

    • I just made this hat for my one and a half year old (her head is 19 in. roughly) and I had to increase it to 66 stitches to fit her. I did that by adding and extra row of HDCs to the 6-9 month size crown that had a total of 6 increases (making row 7 with 54 stiches). I then did a row 0f the pucker stitches and in the next 2 rows I did HDCs as suggested, but increased 6 times in each of those rows also (bringing the total number of stitches up to 66). The rest of the hat I did the same as the pattern (adding a few rows for needed length) and it fit her perfectly. I hope that helps and makes sense.

  3. Sooooooo adorable! Thank you for the great tut. Can’t wait to make it.

  4. That is absolutely adorable, I bet you can’t wait to give your gift to your little one.

  5. Why won’t the pictures print?

  6. Can I please have the pumpkin pattern please.

  7. I’m a little confused.
    “CH 2 (counts as first HDC)
    7 DC in ring, SL ST to top of beginning CH (8 HDC total)”

    Do you mean 7 Hdc in ring?

    I made your granny stitch hat yesterday and hope to make this one today. Thanks for the pattern!

  8. I have looked and looked for this pattern or similar! I am so excited I cant stand it! Thank you thank you thank you!

  9. Hi! I love this pattern and would like to make it for my 8 year-old granddaughter. Can you give me an idea of how/when to increase for her size? Thanks–Marcy

  10. What a great hat! I just love mixed stitch hats and afghans! Could I ask you a question? I’m not very experienced in crochet, but I do ok. I would like to make a mixed stitch blanket, but I’m afraid I’ll try to mix stitches that don’t end properly. Is there some kind of rule for mixing stitches? Mathematical or stitch counts or something? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you very much!!! XO!

    • Becky, did you see my pattern for the mixed stitch blanket in this post? Yes, mathematically it all has to even out. So, I used stitches that require 2 and 3 spaces, so my beginning chain was divisible by both 2 and 3.

  11. Just cause it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s not super helpful.

  12. Hey there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re
    using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must
    say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a honest price?
    Many thanks, I appreciate it!

  13. Oombawka lists your site for a Sugar Love Stash Buster Blanket. Do you have a link to it ?

  14. What is the darker pink color that looks similar to caron simple soft strawberry? Or does it just look like a darker pink in the photo?

  15. I’m confused on the bobble stitch row. You told us how to do the bobble stitch but not how to put it into a row. Are we supposed to put a bobble stitch in all 42 stitches? Or is there a sc or chains between?
