Hope this helps.

  44. Anna Devine says:

    The animal look hats are adorable, but crochet makes my wrists hurt :(. Would love to see something like knitted! I’ve had no problems downloading the others I found attractive. Thanks for sharing these!

  45. delilah says:

    Dear Loveknitting,
    The crochet hats are lovely.

    However, your blog states you need Wendy Mode Chunky, but there is no reference to this in the pattern, it is all stated as Wendy DK.

    Can you please check and advise.

    Thankyou.
    Del.

    • Angelina says:

      Hi Delilah,

      Over the weekend, the pattern and pattern page were updated to reflect that the pattern only calls for Wendy Mode DK yarn, but unfortunately we wrote this post before the corrections were made. I can confirm that the pattern only calls for Wendy Mode DK, and I have updated this post to reflect that. Sorry for any inconvenience, and happy knitting!

      • delilah says:

        Hi Angelina

        Sorry, but you have changed the text between the images of the hats,but not the first description.

        Quote ‘Stylish and adorable, these crochet hats are perfect to keep heads toasty and warm! Crocheted with Wendy Mode Chunky and DK weight yarns, these hats can be finished in no time!’ Unquote

        So was the pattern corrected by the owner? And after you wrote your blog?

        Happy crocheting

        Del.

  46. Julia says:

    Angelina,

  52. Sue says:

    Pattern #4 (wrist warmers, scarf, cowl, and neck warmer) is giving me a hard time downloading. The first page of instructions doesn’t download completely so I don’t get needle size or any of the other ‘important’ things. Can you help me?

  53. joan says:

  54. Joyce says:
