  4. You could definitely use Vanna's Choice. I would just check the gauge I have given at the top of the pattern. In fact, using something stretchier would probably ensure a better fit. I used cotton for summer. :)

  5. I've been looking for a baby hat pattern with a brim, thanks for posting this one! Maybe you can update one of your patterns for it to reflect that it has a brim :)

  6. Thanks for the pattern! I just made it with some organic cotton I had in my stash. Now I just need to find a baby to give it to!
    It was very quick and easy to make and looks cute.
