Well, it is especially easy it is to crochet with! I like to work with Vanna’s Choice because they have an awesome variety of colors to pick from and it is so durable.

  1. On round 2. It states ch 2, BOBBLE in next chain. What is a Bobble. ???

    1. Hi Dianne,

      In the crochet stitches section of the pattern, there is a link with a bobble stitch tutorial. Hope this helps, and happy crocheting!

  2. Just wondering how to adjust the pattern for baby yarn. I have lots of it and wanted to make premie and newborn hats to donate. I love this pattern.

    1. Hi Jeanne,

      I do not have a pattern for this type of hat with baby yarn but If it were me, I’d start with more double crochets in the beginning round and increase each row to to get the size of 11-13″ before stopping the increase. Hope this helps!

  3. where could I find a tutorial for this hat?? I do not know what a slip stitch is at the end of the first row.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Gail,

      Under the crochet stitch section in the pattern there are links for each stitch with tutorials that may help 🙂

    Hi there, I was wondering if you would know the amount of stitches necessary for a slightly larger newborn hat size? I love the pattern and style and it’s so easy but the size of the finished hat seems like it would fit more of a premmie than a newborn

  5. You don’t mention the hook size for the newborn crochet hat in pink?
    MATERIALS:
    Vanna’s choice yarn in pink or any other worsted weight (4) yarn
    Crochet hook size
    Scissors
    Yarn needle
