Hi there! Just click on the link above in the box under Pattern. It will take you to my Ravelry page where you can download the pattern. If you aren't on Ravelry, you'll have to join, but there's no cost to do that. And the pattern is free as well. Happy knitting!

I love this hat. I am a beginner at knitting but this looks like something I could do. I am having difficulty with sizing for my granddaughters. One is 7 and one 4. Do you have any suggestions on how I might downsize a womans pattern to fit them?
Mkaryl Design answered:
Hi there! Thanks for your comment and sorry for taking so long to reply. The year has taken off at full speed! There's not a huge difference in head size between a toddler/girl and a small woman. The range is about 18-20" in circumference. One thing you might try is following the small size on this patternmusing a lighter-weight yarn and smaller needles -- maybe something with a gauge of 4 stitches to the inch rather than 3. You'll have to experiment a bit, and if you happen to have one of your granddaughter's hats around, you can compare how it's working out. You might have to make some adjustments in the length before the decreases begin, but that would be a possible "quick and dirty" approach. Keep us posted on how it works out!
