I must say, that hat is sooo cute, and fits Sarafroggy so nicely!   Smiley
I would love a hat like that, but I havent the first clue how to crochet aside from making a long chain by finger crochet. Tongue Is crochet easier than knitting?  I may try this out someday,or I may say aw screwit and just buy one from ya! heehee!


ps-
Is there a way to knit and make a loose, pretty lace like that? knitting I can handle. Smiley

Pixelpusher, I wouldn't say that either knitting or crochet is easier than the other is, but in my experience, everyone tends to think the one they learned first is the easy one.  My mom is an awesome knitter, but she hates to crochet even though she does it well because she didn't learn to crochet till after she learned to knit.  And I love crocheting, but I can barely knit.  Everyone else I've ever talked to about it says the same, it's always "Knitting is so much easier!"  or "I can crochet so much better than I can knit!" and it always depends on what they learned to do first.  That said, there are also plenty of people who do both just fine and like them both.  Also, this hat isn't super complicated, it's a good beginner thing to try.  I wouldn't think it's a good first project, but it'd be good for a second or third project I think.  Good luck if you try it!

I so want to make this hat! But I'm having problems. I tend to get confused by crochet patterns regarding chain spaces and such and I end up with extra stitches. Could you please include in your pattern how many chains or stitiches you are supposed to have at the end of each round? I've attempted this hat twice and by the third or fourth round it's all ripply, like I have too many stitches. I'm using the recommended yarn and hook size. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, thank you!

yeah, so i gave the hat to my buddy, but forgot to take a picture with it on him.  i did, however, get one with my dear friend elmo.

it's way cuter on kyle.
p.s.  i omitted the last round of dc before switching to the pattern because it made my hat way too huge.  my gauge was pretty close, so check the pattern just in case.

ok, i finished the hat (plus a skinny little scarf to go with it).  i ended up crocheting into the chain, instead of around it (not the easiest way!), and it came out fabulously.  however, my hat was big enough at row tweve, instead of eighteen (you know, how you repeat row seven from 8-18).  i repeated row 7 from 8-12, added the two finishing rows, and it came out well.  my flower was horrible, so i omitted the second row of petals.  very cute!  if i can figure out how to post pics, i will.

Ok, this was so cute that I had to try it.  I have never crocheted with a pattern before, so I had to start over a couple of times until I got the hang of what the stitches were supposed to look like.  I opted for a littler flower...


From the front...


From the side

I used a g-sized hook (all i have at the moment) and the yarn i used was pretty un-stretchy, and toward the end it started getting a little tight (or maybe it's just my fat head!  Tongue) so I left off the very last row.  it's definitely not *perfect*, but i'm happy for my first project.  yay for crochet!  Grin

Chessa Kitty, that's really nice looking!  Thanks for posting a pic.  You too Girlypirate!

Coolbeans, the hat SarahFroggy posted is the one I made for her.  I used a vintage acrylic yarn that's sort of a light weight worsted.  The name of it is in my original post.

I think that the differences in size that are happening for some people are due to the size of the yarn.  Mine is a pretty light weight worsted, smaller than, say, red heart super saver.  But really that's the nice thing about this pattern, it's totally adjustable and you can personalize it however you want.

I'm so glad everyone likes my pattern!
