  1. The hats look great and I am going to make 1 of each and see which of these will be a favorite.
    Different styles for different folks

  2. On the first pattern in round 5 the repeat portion should include a sk 4 dc, sc in next dc, ch2 at the end before repeating.

  3. Love your patterns! I take the small size is for a child as it is 17″ circumference. Just womdering, approximately what is the length of the hat? Should it be the same lemgth of an adult large size?
