These are so cute! I will definitly have to make some for my little ones, especially with fall coming up and school starting, lol. TFS!
 
Oh, thank you so much, Suzetta! :-)
 
These are wonderful patterns and I just bought a bunch of purple yarn (RH) yesterday with kids' projects in mind. Thanks for making your patterns available to us...I love all your stuff!
Cathe.
 
Hi!
Hats beautifuls.
Have a nice week.
Hug,
Sônia Maria
 
I've tried it about five times and I keep messing up :( At first I was going to just keep going, even though I'd made some errors. But my grandma's voice kept ringing in my head "Even if you have to start over and undo hours of work, START OVER!" So I started over. My husband couldn't believe it!

I'm stuck ... wish I knew how to make this happen. I'd love to make this for my daughter!

Join the Suzies Yarnie Stuff Yahoo Group and we will see if we can talk you through your problem. There is a link to join it near the top right hand side of the blog.
 
how freakin' cute is that? My niece's daughter and my grand daughter will look FABULOUS in it. Thanks.

I have just finished this hat,I made it in pale green with a pink trim. I'll post a photo soon. Thanks Suzie for the pattern.
 
s, this hat works up so nice , Iam making some to sent over seas to thekids in Irac, My friends son in law is handing them out to the kids there are 50 were he is . I made mitttens to go with them thanks for a great pattern that works up fast cheri
 
It is a wonderful thing you are doing.
 
I made it for a toddler by using a smaller needle and taking out the last row to expand from 48 to 60 and one of the dc all around before getting to the change to add contrast color - it turned out cute. I used cotton yarn in denim blue and off white and it reminds me of Holly Hobby. Thanks for posting.
 
I love the roll brim hats. I have made two already. Where would I need to increase the stitches to fit an average adult size head?

Bev
 
Look at the list of patterns on the right hand side and there is a listing for the Roll Brim hat in adult size.
 
just made this in one evening. Used a light green worseted with cream contrast rows and the a cream final row. used an h hook for a one year old. thank you suzie great simple hat.
 
Thanks for such an easy, simple pattern (I can finish those projects, lol). I am using up my yarn to make these to donate to a local hospital for the children with cancer. Now to search for a bigger pattern that is similar. If you have one, please post it. Thanks again. I look forward to seeing more patterns from you. :)
 
Check the links to my other patterns on the right hand side bar, there is a pattern for a larger roll brim hat there.
 
this is a very easy pattern that works up beautifully Pattie
 
I just made one of these for my granddaughter who then asked if I would make the same hat for her doll. I just stopped after the top was big enought and started going down the sides, increased a bit for the brim. It is so cute! Johanna
 
I'm having a problem as I am make the to of the hat it doesn't stay flat and starts to curl.What am I doing wrong.


Tina
 
It sounds like you are working to tightly, try a larger hook. It should cup slightly, not be flat.
 
I have 2 little girls (age 2 and 4) who need hats this Christmas. How do you measure for the sizes you have? One says 20": where on the head do you take that measurement?
 
Measure around the head above the ears.
 
I have a very dear 7 year old friend with severe Cerebral Palsey. Her long hair is always put in two ponytails high on her head. I would like to make a hat with holes for the ponytails. (about 2" from the crown and 3" apart) Any suggestions??
 
When you choose a pattern pick one that starts at the crown. When you get to the round where you want the openings, chain a few stitched, and skip an equal number of stitches. On the next round, work into or over the chains. That will give you openings for the ponytails.
 
Thanks for the suggestion. Love your fluffball Pom! (I've had two)
 
what size would i make for a six year old girl??? love the hat
 
I would measure, and make one an inch or two smaller.
 
Hi Suzie, I love this hat. I made it for my grandsons 4 and 2. I thought they would make cute fishing hats. I made one orange with a green band and one green with an orange band. Thanks so much for the pattern. It was one that I could follow easily. Thanks again, Sharon
 
I was looking for a pretty hat with no seams for donations to kids' cancer groups. This is perfect. Will put crochet a flower and pin part of the brim up for the girls and do it in camo colours for the boys. Thanks SO much.

Jan
 
I am so excited to find your pattern. I do day care and want to make hats for the kids for Christmas. This one is going to be perfect for the girls!!!
Thanks!!
Joyce
 
i made two so far and I also added earflaps.they are so adorable
 
I love this hat, but mine seems too small. Anyone have anyideas how to make it fit a 4 year old, bigger hook. I double checked pattern.
 
My guess is you used one of the thinner worsted weight yarns (4). Worked with Red Heart Super Saver and the I hook it should have been plenty large enough for a 4 year old.

You could try making the smaller adult roll brim and with your yarn and technique it would probably turn out small enough for a child.


 
To increase size of hat for an adult would you use a larger hook?
 
No I would use the pattern for adults listed on the sidebar.
