  1. Yeah! Found last years patterns so have already made 4 hats and almost finished with the 5th hat. What fun! A challenge since I also crochet for Octos for a Preemie US and have to use a 2.25 hook and make the stitches super tight. Having gone through chemo this project has a special place in my heart so was excited when I found your site/project. – judy

  2. Hi, can you tell me if the yarn used in this pattern is the same weight as Holly Lobby I Love This Cotton. I am not good at knowing which yarn is interchangeable. Thank you.

    1. I am so happy to start making these hats. I also participated in last year CAL. It was so nice making those beautiful hats. Thank you for teaching us to crochet something beautiful to donate.

  3. Thank you for doing the CAL again this year! Hats are a great summer project since they are small and I can take my WIPs with me! I was wondering, if I were to make a child sized version, what diameter would you suggest for the crown?

  4. Hi, my daughter finished her hat, she was wondering how she acquired a prominent diagonal line on her hat and how to avoid it, or if its normal? although not too bad for her first crochet hat. Where can I send photos of her finished product. She is still donating the hat as is to our local oncology military hospital. Many thanks…
