  4. love this pattern. But it seems a bit large. More like a 3-6 month old with a 16 inch circumference.

  5. Very cute need to get one done as my daughter just received a baby shower invitation. As for the lady asking about the 16" circumference everyone crochets different. I tend to crochet to tight and every babies head is different.

  6. Hi Olivia, I love your pattern! Thank you so much for sharing it with us :) My hat seemed to turn out slightly small... I was wondering how I might size up the pattern.

    Thanks again!!

    1. Hi! I often have my hats turn out "too small" too. I have found that if I use a hook a mm larger than called for, it helps me get the proper size. I found a "sizer" for hats online, too, and often consult that if I don't have any little "heads" around to try it on.

    2. Please direct me to the "sizer" thanks!

  8. Thanks for the pattern! It's adorable. I felt it was a little small so I did an additional increase on round 5 and ended up with 32 stitches. I hope this fits the little one on the way!
