    Your hats are ‘par excellence’! Your ability to create quality, by using simplicity, is very rare to find, and easily recognized as superior!

    You have the ability to know that “How can something be so pretty and so simple?” because that, in itself, is the beauty.

    Thank you for the pattern!! My two granddaughters will love them this Christmas. (2010)

    Dear Alla,
    I to would love to recieve your pattern for the flowers on the Garden Party Hats, though I may be able to figure them out through trial and hier. I am 64; and work as a school cafetiria monitor. I would love to make these hats for the ladies whom work,cooking the school lunches and get no thanks even from the school board, for their hard work here in Harvey. Louisiana; at Ella C. Pittman Elementary School. These ladies work very hard. There are about ten of them. Without the flowers for the hats the beauty is lost.

    Thank You Kindly,

    Vicky says:

    I love this hat. It’s a brillant pattern design. The FPDC used to make the cable and the increase in the hat was a wonderful idea. I am trying to make this hat for my daughter because she has to have laser treatment on her face and needs a good hat to keep the sun off her face even in the winter months and I thought that this little hat would not only keep the sun off of her face but it would be beautiful too. My only problem with the pattern is that I got all the way to rnd 13 or 14 when I realized that my hat was looking more like a dollie instead of a hat. Is there suppose to be any decreases or some kind of shaping in rnds 9 – 16. I am going to try to decrease in these rnds. I hate to add something to someone else’s pattern but I don’t know how else to get the same results. I try to always follow the patterns but sometimes things are left out by mistake but didn’t know if that’s the case. It may just be the way that I’m reading the pattern. Thanks for the wonderful patterns on here and for your time.

    Carla says:

    May I ask if the gauge information for this hat is correct? I’ve been reading it over and over and not catching the sense of it. Plus, after checking these hats on Ravelry many of the users had gauge trouble. My stitches are already quite snug but nowhere near the recommended number of rows for 4″. Please help.

    Thank you for offering this adorable little hat. I would like to make it successfully.

  66. 66
    Alla says:

    Hi Carla,

    Thank you for letting me know. I mean correct gauge is: first 6 (10, 14) rounds = 4”. Sorry it was confusing that way described before (with diameter) ;) Pattern is updated.

    Sincerely,
    Alla

    • Barbara says:

      A further question on the gauge if you don’t mind…
      do you mean to say that
      for the small size, the 1st 14 rows = 4″ from center to edge? i.e., the radius?
      and for medium, the first 10 rows = 4″? and
      for large/adult, the first 6 rows = 4″?
      isn’t that how it has to go for the full pattern to make a smaller hat? Many thanks! I am working this up to get the hang of it first, but have friends who are very excited about this hat and want one soon!

      • Nancy Wisner says:

        Alla, this hat pattern is beautiful, but it would seem a lot of us are having the same problem(s) Namely: Guage and size of the hat. Is Barbara’s translation of your guage correct? My trial hat was very large. Would really love to get this right! Pleease reply with any help that you can give us. I also, was looking for where the decreases were to come in. HELP

        • Alla says:

          Nancy, I did reply Barbara (hmm, but looks as by email only – without posting here, sorry!)

          Yes, Barbara’s translation is correct.

          @To everyone: Please make sure that you have last version of this pattern. I have fixed gauge part and now it not should confuse nobody ;) Thank you so much!!!

    Hi there, just wanted to say that your hat pattern is beautiful. I have made two in different yarn weights and both have turned out huge. I adjusted to a smaller size needle also.

    • Alla says:

      Hi Fran,

      If you met gauge and followed instruction, you should get hat exactly as pictured. If not – I agree, looks as you done something wrong. I would recommend to double check that you do not make extra increasing (at least it’s explains why you get a dolly shape).

  73. 73

    Dear Alla, these are great looking hats. I’m working on some hats for friends and relative’s children for gifts, and these are ones I keep coming back to. I have some great bamboo yarn that I think I may make into a hat for me on this too. It’s a soft lavender color.

    Thanks for providing the pattern, and I’ll post if I have any questions.

    Cathy says:

    Such a lovely hat, I purchased yarn for each size. Am having difficulty meeting the gauge even with adjusting the hook size. On the third try, my gauge is close enough, but I’m not going to have enough yarn. I’m using cascade cotton rich, 2 balls. I can’t figure out why my finished rows measure smaller than the required gauge, yet the hat seems big, that doesn’t seem right, does it? Help!

    • Alla says:

      Hi Cathy,

      close enough gauge is not EXACTLY the same gauge, right?! ;) I would recommend use a bit thinner yarn than Cotton Rich. I hope this help.

      Sincerely,
      Alla
