    Hi. I really want to make some of these, but you didn’t put the gauge in your pattern. You should tell us how many of the (design) stitches make how many inches. For example, say for the 0-3 months size, you say 20 stitches and 20 rows will = 2″ wide and 2″ high. So many online pattern designers leave this important step out. I don’t know how big a hat for a newborn should be, that why a gauge is necessary. Thanks.

      I don’t have the gauge you are specifically asking for, but I added how many inches wide your circle should be after the steps. Did you try measuring the diameter of your circle to see if it matches my measurements ?

      Hm. It’s just a PDF uploaded to Google Drive. Can you normally view documents there? If you can’t get it to work, email me and I will send it to you.

    Yup, pretty much. I think a real eskimo hat was cut out of animal skins, and so it was easier to cut a round shape and then just fold up the front, then to cut an irregular hat shape with ear flaps. That is just my own personal speculation, though!

    These are so adorable – and yes, you definitely need to start selling your work, girl. If not on Etsy, then you should start a page on your blog with your goods! (Or Xmas is coming up, what about any craft shows/fairs in your area? You’d do so well!)
