  1. Now that I have made 2 hats, I would like to make some that are completely closed at the top. If you have time, could you explain to me how I should continue to close the hat at the top? Thank you very much. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family! TFS!

  2. Your teaching style is great. I'm excited to make a hat from the bottom up because I have such great trouble doing it top down and have the hat be the right size. I was wondering if you have a written pattern so I can print it out. Thank you.

  3. OMG I have been Crocheting for thirty Plus years , but just recently got back into it. I have always done the same stitch due to the fact I know no other, but thanks to you Melanie and your videos I have been going to town. Your videos are so easy to follow and you take your time and repeat the process more than just once , I love that and your videos and thank you so much for teaching me how to expand the hobby that I love.

  4. Thank you for the pattern. My mother saw these types of hats in a store going for $20 to $40, depending on the colors and decorations they had. It's better to make one yourself since you can customize it the way you want, and it's not expensive either :)

  5. Thank you for showing us how to do this pattern! I am a beginner, when I crocheted the first round of double crochet, my hat started a ripple affect and appeared larger and not straight, where did I go wrong?

  6. I am an older woman and am use to reading written instructions and graph's  I love the video's. It makes it so easy. Now I'm not complaining you do great!. But try to stay with crocheting terms used in most books. It is less confuseing for us old in their ways people. But also it is good for the young learner. They will do better if they learn it correctly from the get go.   Notice I said old in our ways not stuck! Thank you so much for all you do for people learning.

  7. Thanks for sharing your pattern, will try & whip up a couple for my granddaughters before Christmas. What's Christmas for crafters without last minute projects! Thanks again! Karen Calvert

  8. I have never crocheted before until I got some yarn and started watching this video step by step. I am actually crocheting! I am so excited! Thank you so much for your tutorials! Please make more :)

  9. Hi Melanie! 1) I just wanted to ask about adding a hair band at the top where the opening to the circle is. I've seen a couple of videos implementing hair bands for the circle opening. Do you think it would be possible with this pattern? 2) Also, is there a size chart for pre-teen girls? 3) when you measure the head, are you measuring around the forehead or at an angle? Sorry for all of the questions…i have someone who would like a hat for her daughter, so i wanted to see how the mother can measure her daughter's head, since I will not be around her. Thank you for your awesome video! : )

  10. Having trouble with right when you're starting off after you make the brim. Can you show the inside of the brim where it's being inserted? Also say there's ten rows on the wrong side. Would there be ten places where the yarn goes in? Or will it be 20? One on the row and one between each row?
