I made my now 8 yo grand daughter one a few yrs ago, and she loved to wear it while playing soccer etc. She out grew it, and wanted another. I hadnt written that pattern down and had long forgotten how I made it. So for Christmas in 2010, I made another . It turned out so well, I made three more to fit my other grand daughters. Its very easy to adjust size . They all loved it. This time I wrote the pattern down as I went along,and checked things as I was going thru the first 3 hats.
