This hat is soooooo cute! I am going to make one tonight! For my 6 mos old daughter. Thank you, I will try to send a picture when I am all done!
 
What a sweet cap! I worked it up in my spare time today. I was quick and easy to follow your instructions. Thanks!!! I will be giving it as part of a shower gift.
 
I loved reading your kind comments.

Would like to see photos.

Thanks for the pattern, My 18 month old daughter will love it.
 
I love this pattern. I worked it up in about 2 hours, and my two daughters fought over it! So now I have to make another one!! Thanks for the great pattern.
 
In row 8 you say "dc in next 9 dc." I'm assuming you meant "dc in next 9 sc" since the previous row was done in sc. I just thought I'd point that out.
 
this hat is too sweet! I am making it for my daughter and nieces!! They will love it!!
thank you for sharing it.

This hat is so cute, but I just can't seem to get it to turn out right... it is very bunched up & lumpy. The butterfly stiches are perfect, but the spaces inbetween is where it gets lumpy. Any thoughts on what Im doing wrong?
 
Sometimes a cap just needs a head to look right.
 
Such a cute hat. I'm going visiting tonight and realised that I didn't have gifts for the youngest 2 children so looked online, found this pattern and 2 hours later had 2 really sweet hats. One in pink and one in lilac
 
i fall in love with this hat , may first time making it ,i just started today ,u should make a video so we could follow ur steps that would be awesome !!!!! thx a lot
 
I am trying to make this as a chemo cap for my mom who is fighting breast cancer. I am stumped on round 6. Does the tr in round 6 refer to a treble crochet? That's the only stitch I know with tr and it doesn't seem right? Please advise if possible. Thanks so much.Cindy
 
Yes the tr is treble.
 
Great hat. It would be nice to have a video tutorial, since others want to learn, but aren't that great with "crocheting terms". My daughters would love to learn... I just have enough time to walk them through it.
 
Sorry, I don't do video.
 
Hi do you have a way to turn this into a scarf? My mom loves butterflies and I would love to make a matching set for her. Thank-you!

That's the matching scarf.
 
Have used this pattern sooo many x I modified for 8 and now started with 6 increased to 12 butterflies. Wish I could include pictures. I've recommended in crochet clucs on Facebook too. A big thanks for a lovely pattern. ♡♡♡♡♡
