  23. Thank you for this lovely FREE pattern. I feel badly that you didn’t reach your goal…Hopefully, by now that goal has been reached….
    I really don’t know where else to share, since the only real “social media” I use is Facebook. I just don’t have time for anything else…As it is, I only rarely visit FB….just takes so long! I also do Pinterest and believe I’ve shared it there as well. Is it okay to share this pattern on Pinterest?
    Let me know….don’t want to share there if it’s not your choice…

    Best of luck to you….and THANK YOU again@

  24. Thank you so much for the free pattern, much appreciated but not necessary.
    I didn’t do this to gain anything for free, l did it to help you……
    Many, many thanks…….just one little query, as l’d like to make this for myself, how many
    stitches would l need to start with please sweetie

  25. Ignore my question, l see now the pattern includes adult sizes, sorry
    Kas xxxxxxx

  34. 450 is not Bad!! Keep up the Great work!!

  35. Thanks for sharing these adorable hats on the Knitting Love Link Party!

  36. Thanks! Lovely patterns my grandsons will love these hats.

  37. Love this pattern but am having problems with cast on count. If I start with K2, then the last two stitches must be P2. Every time I start first row, it ends with K2, so I then have 4 knit stitches. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am doing the 1-3 year hat with 90 cast-on stitches. Thanks

    • Hey Cris! Yes – due to the number of cast on sts needed to make the hat come out the right size, you’re going to end with K2. The 4 knits together are in the back of the hat, and not super visible. Sorry for the confusion!

  38. Thanks Melody for clearing this up….again, I love the pattern….and thank you for giving it to us for free…..

  40. I am making cap with diamonds. All goes well till I finish. Say I should have a stitch count of 72. But when I finish the last row of diamonds my stitch count is around 60 something. I have watched the video several times and did 5 redos. I am skipping one stitch and then only single crocheting 2 on the last round? Please help if you can.

    • When you’re counting your stitches, are you counting the FPTRC2tog as a stitch? It should be counted. It sounds like you’re losing one stitch during each diamond repetition. Could you accidentally be skipping 2 sts during each diamond instead of one?

  45. Thank you so much. Got my yarn picked out, Now to do the gauge. This is my first stitch-along.

  46. When do we start crocheting this? Can hardly wait.

    • I’m not sure exactly what Jessie’s timeline is, but I’m betting gauge is this week and you’ll start the project next week 🙂

  59. I want to make this for my aunt. Is there any reason I can’t use a short circular needle instead of DPNs?

    • You’ll have to switch to DPNs at the top when the stitch count decreases a lot, but otherwise you should have no problem using a small circular.
