  1. Extremely easy to follow! Thanks for the pattern. I only changed it slightly by making the first 4 chains a magic ring (or whatever those are called) to avoid the "hole" by simply joining a chain. Not sure if that threw off the pattern or i just can't count (probably the latter) so it's off slightly. But thanks to the pattern being written so well it still came out great!

  2. Is this the same pattern for the blue hat with the button & the brown trim at the bottom that is on Pinterest? (shown with booties to match) It looks like you finished the bottom with a single crochet in brown but I don't see that "last round" single crochet in the pattern above. Can you email a reply to: sgray26@comcast.net
