  1. What brand and color of yarn was used for the body of this hat? Thanks much!

    1. I made this using Red Heart yarn in Carrot, it was a perfect fox color and I already had it in my stash.

  3. How would I re-size this hat for an adult?

  4. Hi there, I love this hat so much and have attempted to make it for my nephew. I have double checked many times but things go wrong for me at round 10 where I count to 44 stitches but fall short by about 4 stitches

  5. I made this hat by the directions and every stitch added up correctly. At the end I had like a curved pancake. Not sure where I went wrong.

    1. If you are showing the last row to be wider it is because, when you did your front post crochet you forgot to skip the actual stitch that you would have used and accidentally did an increase. So when you do the front post skip the stitch that falls behind it almost feels like your skipping a stitch at first but once you get going you will see it take shape. I made the same error and caught it half way through. So before and after your half double crochet you should have a empty stitch hole, because you have a front post stitch around those empty stitches. Hope that is helpful'... God bless!

  6. The problem I'm noticing is the hat in the picture has 13? rows of hdc before the [fpdc, hdc] row. The pattern has 10. When following the pattern, my hat wasn't deep enough. I didn't have enough time to go back, so I did two extra rows of [fpdc, hdc]. That helped, but I think it would be much better to do the extra few hdc rows, instead.

    1. You are right. I was freaking out thinking I did something wrong, but then I read your comment and checked the photo. Luckily I wasn't pressed for time and could undo my work and add two rows of hdc. The hat was then perfect.

    1. Yes, it is! I'll update the post to make it clearer.

  8. Unfortunately, I am not able to see the photo in this article. Since my grandson's last name is "Fox", this pattern may be the perfect winter hat for him this year. Is it possible to see the photo some other way?

    1. Hi there! I just fixed the photo, so it should work now. :) You can also see it at my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Breezybot-164335903598476/

    2. Hi I really loved this pattern (for the ears) and I really wish I could show you the ears I've done but it was really useful and its going to be perfect for my new hat! Thank you so much :)

  9. is there anyway to resize this for a preemie?

  10. how would I resize this for an adult?

  11. Hi everyone! My apologies - there was an error in the pattern and there were supposed to be 3 additional hdc rows. I have now updated it.
