    Thanks Maggie for continuing with the free patterns. I always look forward to seeing the next one. I am going to make this for my granddaughters. I will have to use a smaller hook for them as they are young. Again, thank you!!

    I was so elated to see that you will be featuring free hat patterns now!! I am not much into crocheting dishcloths, although I did copy a few of those patterns, but love doing hats. Just started crocheting again after years of not doing any, and have done 10 hats and 4 scarves since Thanksgiving! All my grandkids and their friends seem to be wearing them these days! Thank you, thank you!

    I am looking for a great crochet pattern for men’s hat/cap which mature men can wear comfortably. Not sure if this one works, so is there another which is not too complex? I’m doing this one x 5 for both male and female snowboards in the family. THANKS big time for this one.
