!!! PLEASE chose size correctly! Follow head circumference and not approximate age! - Finished hat will be in sizing as in the pattern, based on the average size chart, which might not match your child’s/yours head! Measure circumference first and choose size based on head circumference!!! For circumference on the edge you must follow next size. F.e. if your 6 month old baby has a 17” head circumference - you must follow toddler 1-3 y.o. size! Do not add any rows or rounds - it makes the hat taller - and floppier - there will be no “ears” and only squared top instead. If you finish 3-needle BO on WS - you must add at least 2 rounds - because finishing inside will shorten your hat - keep in mind look of the hat will be different than pictured ! In the pattern BO is made on RS purposely, so the ears are sharp with clean edges! --> BEFORE knit entirely hat - measure your hat at around 2”/5cm of body level (NOT brim) - finished sizes are PROVIDED in the pattern - If your hat is not wide enough as for the size you made - you made it somewhere incorrectly, start all over. Before BO - measure height - if your hat is shorter than in the pattern - only then add rows/rounds and BO… Contact me for an advice before you want make any changes - all reviews about size is too small - are based on incorrect knitting, not checking gauge (Drops yarn is thicker than rest of brands - it is thicker, heavy worsted yarn!), substitution of yarn and mostly - choosing wrong size!!! not fault of the pattern - all sizes and fitting were checked while testing… see image on a baby - this is correct fit - this is NOT slouch design.

  • Please note, image on a baby presents correct fit! - there are shouldn’t be any loose on top, or ears wouldn’t looks good! Baby wearing BABY size fox hat is (she is 12 mo with 17” head circumference during pics - no room to grow! fitted look, your baby may have different head size!).

Important Note: to achieve the best result, please use the recommended yarn, a substitute might not give you similar look or size even if you use same needle size! I design my creations for a particular yarn and I am swatching a lot to find the perfect look…

  • please note, so the look is as designed and as presented on pics - the top of the hat should meet the top of head! Otherwise there will be ease and “slouchy” top (what happened if sized up) - what wasn’t in the design! - the ears wouldn’t have that stand out look*

    This Pattern is designed for you to be able to knit a fun cute hat in an easy way - no decreasing - knitted in one piece. Beginners could make this hat quite easily. Magic will happen as soon as someone wears it :-)

    Originally I designed it to be a kitten, but by a simple change of the color of the yarn to orange, it becomes a fox :-)

    Pattern includes all sizes - from newborn to adult. You can use any worsted yarn suitable for US 8-9 (5-5.5mm) needles. Most of the sizes (depending on the yardage of the yarn) require only one skein and would take just one evening (or morning, if you prefer) to complete.

the sizes are an average measurement for listed sizes:
!!!! check circumference and choose size based on circumference, NOT AGE !!!!

NB-3 mo - 12-13” head circumference
3-6 mo - 13”-15” head circumference
6-12 mo - 16”-17” head circumference
1-3yo - 17-19” head circumference
child - 19-20” head circumference
teen 20-21” head circumference
adult 21-22” head circumference
