By popular request:
To size for an adult take the toddler beanie and increase two extra row so you are working with 70 st in each round. You will achieve this by fpdc around 4 and then 2 fpdc around next. Then increase again by fpdc around 4 and then 2 fpdc around next.

To size for a teen follow the above directions but only increase once to get 60.

For those of you sizing for younger than 6 month there is another blog below this one on my main feed. They are Emy's leg warmers and the heart is smaller. You can use the instructions for that heart. To size I would suggest using the toddler instructions but only increase to 40 st and remove a row before you start the heart.

Good luck and have happy hooking!

    1. Thanks! To increase to that size, I would start with dc 12, increase to 24, 36, 48 and then increase one more time and see if that gives you your size. This one fits my toddler who is three so another way to do it would be to increase to 60 sticking to the toddler pattern but adding a row of just fpdc around before starting the heart and then keep the heart instructions the same. :)

    1. For an adult, use the baby size instructions but increase an extra riw so you have a total of 12 additional stitches in each round. Then add three to four extra rows beFore you start the heart. Follow the instructions in the pattern for the heart and you should be good to go!

  9. Do you cut the color B yarn each round?

    1. I cut some and carried others depending on how many stitches were between the color changes. The tips of the heart and the end of the heart I carried but the wide portions of the heart I cut.

  10. This is a great pattern! I can't wait to try your truck one next! I've not had much luck with crocheting pictures into a hat but the fpdc make a lovely straight line to work with so I think I might now be able to try to figure out ways to put in other pictures and words. Thanks so much for sharing this for free!

    1. Thank you! I have one lady who shared a minion beanie she made using this pattern! It was beautiful.

      To date I have three patterns out using this method. A shamrock, the truck and then of course the heart. I do plan on getting letters out as well. Only time will tell!

  11. Do you fpdc around the ch 2 of each row or just around the other fpdc stitches? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The ch 2 does not count as a stitch. Just ignore it like it isn't there :) Your first fpdc will work in the first st and when you join, you'll join to that fpdc as if the ch 2 isn't there.

      Hope this helps!

  14. Hello,
    When does the increase round of 4 fpdc/2 fpdc start for adult size? Does it start after the toddler pattern after Round 4? I started to make it but all it did was keep the shape of being flad like a frisbee, it wasn't taking on a cap shape. And also I was wanting to do it all ine color instead of adding the heart.I didn't think that was the problem. .What needs to be done to solve this? Thanx

    1. Hi! I would suggest checking out some of my newer graph hat patterns (You can see them by visiting the graph hat tab at the top) and following those instructions to get an adult size hat. :)
