I made two granny square hats using Crafty Christina's Soley Granny Squares Hat Pattern. They were relaxing projects and I really enjoyed the contruction. I plan to make a few more if I can fit them in with all the Chrismas WIPs I've got.

I wish I had switched the yellow and green on the blue hat. I wanted it to be boyish and it looks too much like a yellow flower with green leaves to me.

For the purple and green hat I used a circular start. The first two rounds are taken from a granny blanket pattern using double crochet instead of half double. Here you can see the two starting rounds side by side.

Edit:  I've made another hat with the circular granny.  It is a good idea to use hdcs for the first round then dcs for subsequent rounds.  This makes the hat edge much more straight.

I finally got to try these hats on a school-age kid.  Here are more accurate sizing directions.  The individual square size is followed with recommended crochet hook sizes;

Kid (3-10 yrs): 4.5", G
Toddler (1-3 yrs): 4", F
Baby: 3.5", E

Remember that the whipstitch seams add another inch or so to the total circumference. I used the sizing charts from Bev's Country Cottage.

They're cute, I'm definitely trying one. They look small - are they adult sized? And thanks for the pattern!

Thanks for all the comments! 

The pattern called for a size I hook and is an adult size.  I used an F hook for the blue one and should fit a 3-12 year old.  The purple one was make with a size E hook and should fit a 1-3 yr old.

I still haven't even tried to make a granny square, but I'm thinking I'm going to have to now.

Love the hat! This is really weird though. my friend has made a hat much like this one, different colors but same style, and her name is Laura as well. When i saw your user name i was like there is no way...i was right your location is different. Still weird.
