Sylvia said...

Hi, i'm a fairly new crocheter and i was wondering how I could adjust this for a 9 year old? I would appreciate your help.

Amy said...

3-10 years head range from 19- 20 1/2 inches, my 4 year old head is 20 inches, I made this for her, so I'm sure if you keep this pattern the same, it would work, yarn has a decent stretch. Or you can measure the 9 year old head, if it's bigger then 20 1/2 inches then use a j hook for this pattern, hope this helps!

This is too cute! I am crocheting this for my grand daughter. It will be part of her Christmas.

Daughters are pretty special. Enjoy every minute.

Jamie Bowman said...

Is there a knit version? Have no desire/nor time to learn to crochet, but love the hat and love my niece who would also love the hat.

Amy said...

sorry I only do crochet.

Candis said...

Hi:
I'm hoping to make this in an adult size for a hello kitty grown up fan. I'm not sure how to go about doing it though. Do you have suggestions?
Thanks,
Candis

Amy said...

Use a j hook for an adult size

Susan said...

Just started making this hat with a different pattern that I was going to make into a Hello Kitty Hat!!! Just saw this pattern, thanks so much!!!

Sue

candis said...

Thanks Amy I will try the adult hook! You are awesome! My daughter stays home with her little one's and home schools too. It is no easy task! to be a 24/7 stay at home mommy. I'm proud of you!
Take Care,
Candis

Amy said...

Candis, thanks!! For an adult size I would make the length 7 inches long before the earflaps too.

sylvialellis said...

Hi Amy, thanks for taking the time to answer my question about making this for my 9 year old niece. I didn't know the sizes were si close, but I think i'll measure her head just to make sure. :) Thanks

Amy said...

For your 9 yr old niece, I'd use a. J hook

Amy said...

Or increase a round

Anonymous said...

Thank you for posting such a fabulous pattern for free! I'm serving in AmeriCorps and organizing a knit & crochet marathon service project for hats/scarves! All of the donations are going to elementary schools and head start programs. I know a lot of little girls who need a warm winter hat who will go crazy for this! Thank you!

Amy said...

you all are welcome, glad to help!

Jen Granera said...

What size hook would you use to make this for a 1 year old

Amy said...

I would use a H hook for a 1 year old

Jen Granera said...

thank you..it is for my 1 year old niece...she will love it!!!

Wendy F said...

This is so cute ;) In the hdc version does the first chain 2 count as a hdc? so there are 10 sts in the ring? Thanks

Amy said...

Yes Wendy

Wendy F said...

Thank you. And thanks for posting the pattern, you are so talented ;)

Lisa McM said...

I LOVE it-just adorable! My dtr-in-law is wonderfully quirky & will just love this hat...if I can only print it. I sit at the computer all day so when I want to crochet & need to be able to print it & take it to bed with me. When I tried to print this the background came out so dark that I couldn't read it. Is there another way or an icon I missed??

Amy said...

I'll send to you via email, Lisa, give your address

Melissa said...

Glad to find your blog! I am currently living in Japan and hello kitty is HUGE here! So I'm excited to make this one! I just recently started though and I bought hooks here. They are numbered instead of lettered. Do you have any idea what hooks I would use for a 2 & 4 year old?

Amy said...

H hook=5 for the 2 year old. I=5.5, for the 4 year old

Anonymous said...

Thank you for sharing such a great pattern! My daughter is due with our new granddaughter next week and I would love to make one for the new born. What size hook should I use? How many rounds do you think I would need to get the diameter I need? I'm anxious to get started!
Aloha from Hawaii!
Mona

Amy said...

Newborn, e hook, 5.5-6" long, keep pattern same with this hook

Anonymous said...

Thank you! Will get started right away. There are many other patterns you have shared that are just so adorable! Thank you for blessing us with these patterns.

Mahalo nui loa!

Thank you so much for this pattern! I made it in just a few hours as a Christmas present for my granddaughter, when my daughter saw it, she wanted one.

I keep getting pointy ears, what am I doing wrong?

Amy said...

pointy ears, I replaced the ear part back to the original pattern so try that one, thanks

Betsy said...

Ok quick question.. I know you went over what hooks to use for what ages/sizes, even though we use different hooks do we keep the pattern the same or do we still need to increase a row when making a bigger hat? Does that make sense?

Amy said...

No increase just change the hook, but look at the length for each size, older kid hats need to be longer.

Marci Gail said...

Do you think this could be done with a chenille-type yarn?

Marci Gail said...

Do you think this could be done with a chenille-type yarn?

Amy said...

Yea, should be fine

Amy said...

Yea, should be fine

Amanda said...

To increase, just use a bigger hook, but wouldn't it still be the same size? And which round would i do again?

Amy said...

Yes usi g a larger hook, makes it bigger. From the beginning use the same hook for which size you like, I've used different hooks and know it makes it larger after I measure it.

Anonymous said...

i just made your hat pattern for my niece. thank you for sharing your pattern. its very much appreciated.

debbieann said...

Love your patterns! Im making the eyes for Hello Kitty but the directions are resulting in a ring which doesnt look like the picture that is shown. Am i doing something wrong?

Amy said...

I pinched the eyes to make them look more long

Thank you for sharing this pattern.

tayrenae100 said...

I've made this hat twice! I absolutely love it darling! I had to adjust the rounds (by repeating round 4 and 5) to make an adult hat b/c I didn't have a K hook (I used a J hook)and am now making a baby one :D

tayrenae100 said...

I love this pattern! I made it twice! I had to repeat rounds 4 and 5 to make an adult hat (that fits perfectly) b/c I had a J hook instead of K. Now I am making a baby one for a friend! Thanks for the great pattern!

thegrays4life said...

So you said cotton yarn, but then not cotton yarn. Would Simply Soft work? I just try to use what's cheap and available. :-) Plus I already have some in hot pink, and then I have baby yarn in yellow, but that would probably work since it's for such a small thing. Can you let me know my options for the white? I'm pretty good at crochet, just not the yarn-choosing part.

Amy said...

Any yarn works, I was jus telling o what I used.

Angie said...

I absolutely love this hat and so does my daughter but I'm horrible at sewing on the ears, eyes, nose, and bow..I have everything made but did a half circle for the ears instead and can't hide the sewing very well or make it look nice at least..Do you have any suggestions for this?

Amy said...

For sewing, I just use a sew needle, weaving in and out and I try to hide it.

Angie said...

Fabric glue works wonders for the whiskers

Anonymous said...

I LOVE this hat, made one for my sister and tweeked a few things to make a teddy bear hat for a girl at school and a tiger hat for one of my BFFs! P.S. I'm giving you the credit for everything! Love it!

Selena said...

caitlin h said...

I am working on this pattern for my niece and I love it!! Thank you for sharing it :D the only thing I've changed is on the ears to make them come to a point. To do that after I made the circle for an ear and it was time to sc the sides together when I reached the center I dc2tog and ch one in the next st sc and continue. This way they look more like kitty ears. I also plan to make the penguin hat, owl hat and the brim hat the patterns are really cute and I can't wait to start them. :] Keep up the good work!

debbie said...

Amy said...

Look up Bpsc on YouTube, that will help.

Absolutely adorable! Made two hats in hdc. One was a birthday gift along with the purse and the other for my granddaughter. Both 4 yr. olds love them! Thanks very much for sharing all your patterns!!

Marty said...

Amy, I love this hat. I want to make it for two little girls, both age 5, how much yarns do I need?

Amy said...

Ball of yarn per hat

shoshy said...

I just made this for my 3 year old granddaughter who requested it. She loved it and even wore it to bed!
Thank you for providing this great pattern which was easy to follow even though I am a newish crocheter!
The photo of it is available on Ravelry under username Shoshyr

Holly Whitten said...

I tried using cotton yarn (peaches and cream) and it didn't curve the way the hat needs to. Red Heart worked great. Thanks so much for the pattern.

Julz said...

I keep coming up with only 35 sts for rnd 3. I have started over many times. Am i supposed to DC in the same space as joining? Please help any comments will be appreciated.
Thanks! Great pattern by the way!

Amy said...

No, u are not supposed dec in the same space as joining, not sure why unare getting 35, I'm sure if u continue on, the hat will still turn out.

Julz said...

Sorry i didn't mean decrease, I meant double crochet. I have been working on this and the only way I can seem to make it come out to 36 stitches correctly is if I do 2 double crochet in the first stitch and then I follow the pattern. Thanks for your quick response! I hope I am doing this right, I would like to make one for both my 6 and 3 yr old girls.

Amy said...

I think if u do it your way, it will be fine.

Amy said...

Ok make sure, you slip stitch on top of the chain 2, then next to it, will be a stitch, double crochet once in that stitch, then 2 dc in the next stitch, continue, then at the end when you have 36 stitches, them slip stitch on top of chain 2, that should work, I just tried it. I like a snug fit but if u find this hat too tight u can add an increase round or use a bigger hook.

mecca said...

can i stop at 30 stitches instead of 40 for the ears? then sew?

Amy said...

Yes but the ears will be smaller

Iris said...

I used my pattern for ear flap hats and made Hello Kitty and the penguin for my daughters using your embellishments and colors. They love them! Thank you so much for the patterns and inspiration!

debbie protaszczak said...

tntayala said...

I've got the ears made but can't seem to understand how to attach them. Can you please help with that? THANKS

Amy Lehman said...

I did change the ear pattern, so it looks different from the picture, but I would sew it closed at the bottom of the ear, and then sew it to the top of the hat, both about 2 inches apart.

Leslee said...

Just wondering if anyone has tried to make this in an adult size?

Amy Lehman said...

here is an adult size version too, http://amray1976.blogspot.com/2011/10/crochet-hello-kitty-adult-hat.html
just use an I hook, for the earflaps too

Lorretta Smith said...

Thank u I can understand this 1 hehe

shellyl1107 said...

Does anyone have a pattern for a hello kitty scarf to match?

Crescent View Bed and Breakfast said...

Amy, I saw this worked up and it inspired me to find your pattern. THANK YOU! Unfortunately, I'm past row 6, 60 stitches, and it looks more like a saucer than a hat Unsure what I'm doing wrong. Red Heart. I've made hats before, but this is the only one so far that's done this to me. Ideas? Thanks!

Crochet Jewel said...

ok, now just work a dc in each stitch around to form the hat. what size are you making this for? make sure you have hook size right for the size you need.

kaitlin bertin said...

Thank you for your frees pattern, love it. I am making animal hats for children with cancer .
