Thanks for your pattern and sharing your talent with us. I went to your blog and the pictures arn't showing up as it says account inactive for 90 days from photobucket. Didn't know if you know that.

We're hosting Dot's patterns here at Crochetville because Dot isn't able to devote the time she needs to maintain her photobucket/blog accounts. It will take us some time to get them all posted, but you'll eventually be able to find all Dot's patterns, complete with pictures, here at Crochetville.

I have made this hat so many times! It's great for charity, great for keeping one or two for myself, just wonderful! It uses up scrap yarn, and the pattern is easy, easy, easy! The best part? I'm a slowwww crocheter and I can do this hat in about 35-45 minutes. Can you tell I like this pattern?

It is very fast to work up and very easy. I made two yesterday, one while sitting at the doctor's office while my friend waited to be seen. I gave her one of them and she loves it. I highly recommend this pattern. Easy enough for a beginner but turns out so nice that even experienced crocheters will love it.

ahh i love this hat i saw it just a little bit ago and decided to make it right after i saw it, it took me less than an hour, but i didn't have an m hook i only had an n hook so i decided to do 7 rows instead of 8. I also added a crocheted posy which just really added too it. ugly hat? no way, more like awesome hat!!! this is really good for a beginner ( Well i've been crocheting for a bit more than a year but yea still a great beginner project)

would it be possible to make this hat using Homespun yarn? I am looking for a simple hat pattern for my mom for Christmas using Homespun. Thanks

Hi I just wanted to say that I worked up this hat last night for my husband. I had been trying to do him a hat for a while, without success. Probably due to my being new to the craft. ;) However, after ripping out another pattern three times I was ready for something different. I finished after about two hours, but I'm sure a more experienced person would be quicker. It worked up well and fit my husband great after adding three rows to the end so that it would cover his ears. Hubby was happy= I was happy. Thanks for the lovely pattern!

Does anyone know what the gauge is on this hat? I wanted to use Bernat Soft Boucle and i've always like that hat. Unless anyone has another they've used boucle for.

Thanks
