    this beanie is beautiful! too bad I live in the tropics, but I will do it anyway!

      Hi Annabelle, Thank you! Yes, it’s hot here right now but I’m still crocheting warm things. lol. Getting ready for our extremely cold winters!

    Hi, Paula. I’m loving this pattern. I’m a beginner again at 51 (I used to crochet when I was a teen) and this is my first project. My teenage daughter knits and crochets, but has decided to stick with knitting. I had some leftover thin yarn, which I am using for this pattern. I don’t know which number it is, but it’s about the thickness of white household twine. So far so good, but I have some questions for you. 1) I have finished the crown and was going to start on the sides, but, since the yarn is so much thinner (I’m using a 5.5 needle), should I add a few more circles before starting on the sides? I would assume that I would follow the same pattern, just moving onto 6s, then 7s etc. 2) since this beanie is coming out very whispy because of the thin yarn and large needle, should I use 2 ds on the sides, rather than 1 to give it more substance? Thanks!

  3. Nancy says:

    Thank you for doing this tutorial , it’s great. I made one for myself and daughter and working on my daughter in laws. To make this for my 5 year old granddaughter how would I adjust to fit? Thank you again so much.

    • Paula says:

      You’re welcome Nancy. To make it smaller, measure the head circumference and make the beanie crown by increasing until you have the same circumference measurement that you require. Then work the sides with the amount of stitches you are left with without increasing or decreasing.

    Paula, you are just amazing! I am in the process of my first slouche hat. I just love this style. Thanks for all you do! I’m so hooked. 😁😋

    Hi, I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your you tube videos, you are an awesome teacher, but I could not tell you – since the comments are disabled… So I learned how to crochet alittlewhen I was small, however, never really learned how to finish off… so I started making hats to donate to a homeless shelter, and I truly wanted to say thank you for your videos, lots of videos on you tube but you are truly patient, and explain well… So If I can ask you what would be a nice simple blanket that I can make for these hats (trying to make a few so when October comes I can send them to a ministry… If you can lead me to a simple blanket nice but simple… I would appreciate!!

    Thanks again
