  • stacey - Hi Susie! Love this hat and am planning on making it for my friend’s son. I have one quick question….Can you use another type of yarn or do you need to strictly use cotton? If yes, what kind of yarn would you suggest? Thanks so much.January 17, 2017 – 3:49 pmReplyCancel

    • Susie - Hi Stacey, I only use cotton yarns for my son because it holds up really well in the washing machine and dryer too. Acrylic yarns are beautiful but I’ve found that they tend to pill after washing often and they lose their shape and luster. I also find that there are too many special instructions on washing wool yarns. If your friend’s little boy is as sweaty as mine, or likes to roll in the dirt, like mine, this hat is going to be washed A LOT! Cotton would be the way to go if you want it to last! Hope this helps! -Susie ;-)January 17, 2017 – 8:12 pmReplyCancel

  • TJ Olsson - I want to start making beanies for child cancer patients here. Any chance you would have a conversion chart for younger kids head circumferences.
    Thanks.January 12, 2017 – 6:07 amReplyCancel

  • Ronke - Hi. Wanted to do a new hat for my 5 year old son to start the new term. I opened hats for kids for him on Pinterest to choose one and out of the hundreds of hats, he chose yours. I was a bit terrified initially but after reading your pattern, I realized making it was so stress free and easy. Thank you so much for clear instructions and a hat that rocks!January 5, 2017 – 3:09 amReplyCancel

    • Susie - Wow! That makes me so happy to hear this! Thanks for taking the time to write to me! -Susie 😊💕January 5, 2017 – 7:47 amReplyCancel

  • Penni Kinkade - Hi there,
    Thank you for this pattern! I’m making hats for a non-profit for kids with cancer. I noticed on rows 7-16 you continue to increase yet you say each row only has 58 stitches. This appears to be a typo.
    Thanks again!December 29, 2016 – 10:24 pmReplyCancel

    • Susie - Hi Penni, you’re right! It was my typo and I’ve corrected it! Also, I admire what you’re doing for the kids. You’re inspiring me to give more in my local community as well. Thanks again for writing! -Susie 😊✨December 30, 2016 – 3:55 pmReplyCancel
