Hope I am commenting in the right section here.  I just LOVE this cluster craze hat pattern.  I made one for myself many years ago when I first found the pattern, and now I am using different yarn and a smaller hook size to make hats for the infants and toddlers at the daycare where I work.  Right now they are pretending doll underwear stretched out over their heads is a hat, and I figured I'd make them some cute crochet hats to play with.
