why is it so hard to ger a printable pattern?

I am basically a beginner and any crocheting I have done I was self-taught. I am wondering how you know what size to make your hat. Thank you.

http// Hope this helps

For those of you looking for the Spiral Slouch Hat pattern...

I was trying to find the pattern for the spiral slouchy hat and the link is for the Ava hat. I did a search and it didn't come up that way either and also looked in the 24 Beginner Hats article. No luck. Where is that pattern? Thanks

I agree, tried to find the Spiral Slouchy Hat Pattern.... No Luck.. Would really like to try it too! Thanks

Very pretty

I cannot open this pattern to view, why is this?

Could I please have the pattern for the peach colored hat? or how would I find it. I love these sweet little hats! Thank you in advance

looking for pattern of orange hat with pink rose - dearly like the scallop pattern in hat - especially for chemo patients

I really want to print the patters for these baby caps, but when I hit print I get pages and pages of comments. I Do NOT want comments, all I want is the patterns. I might read the comments but do not want them to be printed. Thank you for listening. CH

You could copy and paste the pattern to an e mail to yourself and print it out. OR you can hit the print button after you highlight what you want to print. Then hit "selection" after the printer box pops up.

Ditto! I don't want to download anything but the pattern. Not 25 pages. Gathel

bfraci 6137340: It seems like the designer of the Ava hat may have used an existing pattern to crochet the pink hat in the photo. We suggest you contact the designer (Wormie from Hooked On Crochet) to ask about the pattern she used. Hope this helps! -- Editor of AllFreeCrochet

You have a pink hat next to the Ava hat. Do you have a pattern for that? Where can I find it? Thank you so much.

Hi judychirikas, The email should be located on the page with the full pattern on it. If not, you can leave a comment on her blog under the pattern. Thanks! -Editors of AllFreeCrochet

ok if i need to contact the designer. could you give me her email? thanks. judy

looking for the pattern for the pink hat with the purple flower. i think its called rose is a rose. i cant seam to find it anywhere. help. thanks judy

Hi curelosandi 0209820 - The designer only provided the pattern for the purple hat. If you would like to make the pink hat, we suggest that you contact the designer directly. -The editors of AllFreeCrochet

Love the hats! Where can I find the pattern for the lacy pink hat with the purple flower? My granddaughters look adorable in any hat. Can't wait to whip these up for them. Thanks, GrannieSan

To print only the pattern, highlight the instructions and then click on 'print'. When it comes up, tell it to print 'selected'. Otherwise, you will print all the ads and comments. A waste of time, paper and ink. Then to get the picture, click on it and when it comes up by itself, then click on the print icon. Too bad the website doesn't make it easier for us.

bpdc means back post double crochet. Put "back post double crochet" into your google (or other) search and you will find videos, written instructions, etc. bpdc and fpdc (front post double crochet) will take a few minutes to figure out the first time but once the light comes on they're easy to do. Sage

I am not familiar with the abbreviation bpdc. I have looked on your abbrv. page but that was no help. Could it mean dc in post?

Can't wait to do these for my granddaughter

Love the way they look - can't wait to get started!
