i love this hat, thankyou for sharing!!!!
This is just too cute and my 11 yr old went crazy for it.
My granddaughter will love this hat.
It looks so easy to make!
I love your ‘peek-a-boo’ hat..and have made many for my friends and relatives..but wonder if you have the pattern for the matching green top that the model is wearing..thanks,,sandy
a suggestion, make a printable option it would save 2 or more pieces of paper and ink on this pattern alone. ps my neice loves the matching sweater for this hat and the vest also in this book. the patterns were very easy to alter to fit her smaller size. thanks
beautiful hat! i am going to make it right away.
Love the Peek A Boo hat. Made it for my daughter! She loved it. I did add 2 more rows to fit her head, but it’s too cute! Thanks for sharing!!!!
I need to increase this pattern to fit my neice, but I do not end up with the skull cap shape when I am done. Can someone give me more specifics to increase and keep the shape?
Would really like to get the Get Hooked Again book, so I can get the Peek a Boo schrug,but haven’t had any luck. Please let me know.
i will have to try this
