Oh, Suzie, you've done it again! All the sizes we would ever need! I'm going to do some in my kids' HS colors: maroon and white. And of course, in Seahawks, Sounders, and Mariner colors. I'll also crochet some to send to the Pine Ridge Reservation kids. Thanks so much!
 
Hi, i'm just crocheting up one of these baby beanies, thanks for the pattern, it's great. I have a question though, at the end of round 10 you have 42 stitches, at the end of round 11 you have 54, where do the extra 12 stitches come from, do i increase evenly over round 11? i've looked at the other sizes, the larger ones don't have an increase at this stage, the small childs one does, but is the same as this one, so i'm a bit lost. thanks, \Helen
 
Thanks for catching that. The hat is worked on the 42 stitches with no increares.
