Crochet Pattern Central is a wonderful place to find just about anything! I love going in, but must do it when I have lots of time because one pattern leads me to another, and another, until hours have gone by. I must stay focused when I'm there or I completely lose myself! Thank you for sharing a great place with everyone.
Blessings, Donna

Hello,
Thanx for the cute pattern. I have a problem though, the finished size is small, and the peice starts curling before decrease starts. I have tried it twice so far. Should I try a bigger hook size?

A bigger hook size, or different yarn. Maybe your yarn is too thin, therefore it's coming out smaller when ifnished. or maybe the hook is. have a play around, and see. you could also alays block the hat once finished, to the correct size.
hope that helps, :)

thank you for this lovely pattern. My daughter-in-law wanted something a little different for her soon to be born baby. I reckon this will be just the ticket :-)
