    Awesome pattern as always Paula, am going to give it a go on an 11hr train trip (1way) to Adelaide next Thursday. Can it be done using 8 ply too? I guess just do extra rounds maybe? I’m not sure, you’re the expert!

    • Paula says:

      Aww, thanks Michelle! You are sweet. Yes, you can use an 8 ply or if you want you can thicken your 8 ply yarn by using a 3-4 ply with it so you won’t have to do extra rounds. Otherwise you will have to do an extra increase round and more rounds for the sides using 8 ply.

  2. Jennifer Crewe says:

    I love the look of this beanie. Tank you for being inspired and thanks for sharing the pattern. Just the excuse I need to get more Redheart wool sent to Australia! I just wish the postage was less and it didn’t take time.

    • Paula says:

      Thanks Jennifer. Glad to be sharing it with you. Ah, yes definitely a great excuse to order more Red Heart. 🙂 Order a big batch and spoil yourself, I do! lol. Yep, the postage is a bummer!

  3. Jennifer Crewe says:

    Paula, wondering if you could give me some advice as to the best and most usuable Redheart to get. I have tried super saver but it feels a bit harsh. I would appreciate any suggestions for all round crochet.

  4. Susan Gullion says:

    Hi Paula,

    Thank you for making this tutorial so easy to follow. I had never done a BPdc. I am a technical writer and even I would never be able to explain in words how to do it. The stitch is hard, but worth it. My beanie came out great! I am self-taught, but never knew how to follow a pattern before. You have truly given me a gift. Thank you so much.

    • Paula says:

      You’re welcome, Susan. I’m glad you’ve been able to achieve making this hat. It sure is a nice one. Well done on being self-taught, that’s how I did it. Thank you for leaving your lovely comment. All the best, Paula

  5. Monica says:

    Made 2 beanies of yours love them …been crocheting since I was 12, now 52 love it…love your designs …bring on more

    • Paula says:

      That’s great, Monica! You will love my next design then, I’ve just finished designing a slouchy beanie! 🙂 It will be up on the website and youtube channel soon.

  6. Julie Monty says:

    Oh my !!!! I love this. I am currently making caps/beanies for babies/kids/teens that are undergoing cancer treatment and donating them. This will be awesome for the teenagers. Thank you so much.

  7. katy says:

    I made this hat this morning. Love it and seriously….it only took a few hours. It was so quick and extremely cute. Just have to add a few flowers or something then I’m finished.

    • Paula says:

      That’s fantastic, Katy! Yes, a few flowers always do the trick to finishing off a hat. 🙂

  8. Amal Farah says:

    I would like to know how to make it for bigger heads .

  9. Mary-Elizabeth says:

    i LOVE this pattern but didn’t want the pattern’s gorgeous linear flow to be interrupted by the slip stitch and the building of the next row! after playing with the joining of rows a bit, i found a way to almost completely hide the join and new row! begin this maneuver with the first bpdc row and each one following. after joining your last increasing round with a slip stitch, slip stitch again using the back post technique to slip stitch around the chain-2 “post” you just joined into the top of. ch-2 and continue per the pattern. but now when you build that new row, you’ll see that the ch-2 builds out of the back of the work and the join hides gorgeously! I COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASED!!!!! THANK YOU, PAULA!!!!

    • Paula says:

      This is truly magnificent, Mary-Elizabeth!

      Thank you so much for taking the time to share this with us all. I really appreciate it, as will others. 🙂

      • Phoebe Gibbs says:

        I was using this gorgeous merino and silk and the join was really obvious – I kept undoing it and looking around the internet for invisible joins for BPDC -(there was only double crochet info) I finally hashed a few techniques together – If I used the same one over and over it was obvious – had to mix them up. I really loved the hat (Christmas prez for my mother) and it looked great. Maybe this techniques will get me what I am looking for. I was starting to wonder if I should alter the pattern to be a continuous coil and therefore not have “joins” to worry about. Has anyone tried that?

  10. Pat says:

    I have no skill what so ever..and I did try this crochet hat by following your video every steps! First I didn’t think that I could do it, but because of you that make it so easy….Last night I started and can’t stop…ha ha ha … couldn’t believed that I can do this …a special Thanks to you Paula, Thank you so very much…………..Tomorrow I am going to make one more for my lovely mom ,surely she will love it 🙂
    Thanks a lot for sharing this knowledge to us all.

    • Paula says:

      Wow Pat, thank you so much for sharing this great story. I can tell you are so excited at your achievement and congratulations. You are now a crocheter! 🙂

  11. Lillian says:

    I made this for my Mom for Christmas this year and she loved it! Thank you so much for sharing this lovely pattern.

    • Paula says:

      I’m so glad to hear it, Lillian. I bet your Mom looks great in it too. 🙂

  12. michelle kilner says:

    I did this hat for a Christmas gift with matching mittens and now I have people calling me to make them one too. I love this pattern so much I made myself one too! Thanks so much.

    • Paula says:

      • ArtisianGal says:

        Hi! Paula,

        This past weekend I located the visual instruction on the beanie hat. You are the first instructor to speak clearly enough for me to hear on my headset. I truly enjoyed the instructional video as I am a visual learner…thank you so very much! Say hello to your model ( Mother )!

        • Paula says:

          Hello ArtisianGal,

          I’m really happy to hear that. Thank you so much. I will say a hello for you to my mother. 🙂

  14. Jackie says:

    Hi Paula, I crochet chemo caps with a group of women at our cancer center. I started this hat there this afternoon and finished at home this evening. It is very easy to make and I’m sure it will be worn comfortable by an appreciative cancer patient. I even crocheted a flower and attached it to the lower right side. I think it’s darling! Thanks for the pattern.

    • Paula says:

      Hello Jackie, That’s very admirable that you crochet chemo caps for women at your local cancer center. I’m very happy to hear that you can make this hat so quickly. Yes, I am sure that any cancer patient will appreciate your work and support. A flower really is a nice touch. Thank you for leaving a comment. 🙂

  19. Phyllis Lough-Williams says:

    Hi! I love this pattern and have made many in different sizes. Thank you for sharing.

    I am unable to get to your Facebook page. Help, please?

  20. Frank Barrera says:

    I just wanted to say, THANK YOU PAULA, for your instructional videos. I have been crocheting now for three weeks and have made several of your beanie caps. To those that received them, my grandmothers and friends, I have heard nothing but praise for them. I started attempting to learn to crochet about 20 years ago, and from then to now, often fiddled around, couldn’t seem to make it work, got frustrated, and gave up. Until I learned about the vast amount of instructional videos on YouTube, more so yours, have I become somewhat successful. I again, just wanted to say thanks as your teaching style, patience, clear spoken voice, and I can’t say it enough, sorry, but your videos are a total hit in my book. I can undoubtedly say, without your videos and clear instruction, I would have indeed gone through another period of fiddling around and giving up. I certainly look forward to keeping an eye on your website and channel as I continue to learn.

    Sincerely, Frank
    (An extremely satisfied consumer of your videos)…

  21. Kellie says:

    Saw your pattern and just loved the hat design! I used Loops & Thread “Impeccable” yarn from Michael’s in the lavender shade…well it’s just adorable! Thank you so much for a terrific pattern!
    Happy New Year!

  22. Cheryl says:

    Hi Paula, this pattern I picked out of thousands. Not only was your tutorial awesome to follow and understand, thank you. I feel the pride when I finished it and it was beautiful. I noticed you can flip it inside out for different look. My Sister’s boss has been battling cancer now for a year and half. She lives in Ohio which we all know right now is so cold. I was wondering do you or could you come up with a scarf that would match this hat. Thank you again for your awesome tutorials to share with us.

  23. Punit D'souza says:

    Hi. I feel in love with this pattern. In Mumbai, we don’t have much variety of yarn and I had to make do with whatever is available. The first one, I made with cotton yarn and 4.5mm hook for a CAL. The second one I made with woolen yarn and a 5mm hook (for my husband). In both cases, I had sizing issues and the final outcome is not as gorgeous as yours, yet it looks fabulous and has gotten me loads of compliments. Thank you for this lovely pattern. Do incorporate changes required for different yarns and hook sizes for not very experienced crocheters like me:)

  24. Cliodhna Porter says:

    I just completed this beanie but instead of using the colors you listed here, I used a soft white and an yarn called Icelandic. Basically, it is a mix between light blue, grey and white. I made it for my best friend to cheer her up and she loves it. I can’t wait to send it over to her in Ireland.
