I made one using a kind of bubbly black yarn, and my husband is bringing it to work for one of his co-workers daughters. I took a picture of it and now my daughter wants me to make one for her and one for her 13 year old daughter, and her 6 year old son. That was a pretty neat response.

love to see it, for the 13 yr old, i would use a j hook, and make it 7 1/2 inches long, and keep it the same for the 6 yr old.

Thanks SO MUCH for offering your patterns free of charge! I have been wanting to make a cute hat for my 2-yr-old niece. You would think it wouldn't be that hard to find a free pattern online, but it is! I cannot believe how long I had to sit in front of my computer before I found a cute pattern I could print. Thank you!!
