  2. Adorable! I was wondering what brand of yarn you use for this pattern and the mickey mouse patterns, I know it says 60 g DK (8 ply) but when I look for that specifically I have a hard time finding it.

  5. This is a lovely hat but lacks crucial details in the directions. The body of the hat was doable with given directions only because I'm an experienced crocheter. The stem doesn't work. I had to invent my own stem completely. I am not going to include directions that work because only the newborn size is free and I'm not going to add free corrections when not all sizes corrected would be free. I love the projects on your site but won't buy any directions because these were so below par. If you're selling directions, not product, those directions better be first rate!

    1. If you are an expert then you should not be looking for someone else's pattern and you should start creating your own pattern. And if you don't like it, don't do it. She is awesome and all her pattern work perfectly.

  7. Hello,
    Do you allow people to sell items that they have made with your patterns?
    I'm going to be at a craft fair this fall and would love to sell some of your hats but wanted to double check first!

    Thank you!

  8. I've been asked to replicate this hat in a bigger size. I was thinking it should be easy enough to make the chain longer and add more rows but was wondering if you have suggestions on how to make that work at the top/stem of the pumpkin? My thought is to start with more than the 20 stitches and add a few more rounds of decreases but I'm not sure.
    Thanks,
    Kelly

    Thank you!

  11. I used this newborn pumpkin hat pattern to make a tiny garland. I used crochet cotton thread and strung several of them on hemp. Came out sweet. Thank you Olivia for all your free patterns and tutorials.

  14. Hello! Thanks for this tutorial.
    I'm going to try to make it for my 5 months baby. I've found only one kind of yarn, wich is 100g/250m,I think it's slightly thinner than yours... do you think I can try or do I have to double it??
