  1. Hola soy Olga de Argentina y amo hacer tus gorros. Muchas gracias por compartir tus conocimientos ❤

  2. Hi, I’m new to crochet and this looks like a great beanie to attempt.
    I’m going to attempt this with a bulkier yarn, approximately how long is the beanie top to bottom? Thanks 😀

  3. Hi Sirin

    Thank you for the great pattern and tutorial. I noticed in the written pattern you write ”bpsc”, back post single crochet. After watching the video I think it should be ”BL sc”, back loop single crochet.

    All the best x
