When I saw this pattern I remembered my son had a hat similar when he was a baby and I just had to make it. The pattern was simple enough but did use something called an extended single crochet stitch which I wasn’t familiar with. Once I got the rhythm down I didn’t have any difficulties. The size was supposed to be newborn but I think I crochet a bit tighter than the author so my hat possibly is a bit smaller. I need to get a different model so I can judge the sizing better. Mr. Hugglesworth really enjoyed the hat but Senõr Hoppy wanted ears too. He didn’t realize that he wouldn’t be able to see.
