  1. Thank you so much for publishing this pattern. I only learned to knit two weeks ago and was looking for a beginner project. Your pattern is perfect; clear and easy to follow. I knitted my beanie in one afternoon.

  2. directions for the actual beginning and end would be helpful. i've mostly just read gibberish…that's how new/beginner I am. Does the pattern seal itself up or do i have to do that for the crown part?

  3. Just finished up one of these. Really simple and quick. Thanks so much for sharing. I used the self striping charisma yarn so it's actually striped in three colours. On row 40 I had an extra stitch. Don't know what I did wrong but I just knit it and carried on.

  4. Thank you for this pattern as I am knitting this for the homeless and refugees and it is quick and easy even with my arthritic hands thank you so much
