  1. Hi
    So excited that I found your pattern. It’s so much cuter than the amish bonnet pattern I found a few months ago. Just have a question about one of your abbreviations. fdc. What is that ? I haven’t come across that abbrev. before.
    Please write me back and let me know.
    Hopefully you are online often because I want to start on this cute bonnet. Oh yeah and one more thing will this hat fit an adult head? If not,To make it fit an adult what do I have to do?

    1. hi michelle, thanks for stopping.
      fdc is front dc. it is also known as ‘fpdc’
      to make fdc: Yo and insert hook from the front to the back around the post of the dc on the previous row. Complete as for regular dc.
      it is pattern for a toddler. to make the hat fit to an adult you should work out the flat back side according to the head size.

  2. the hat is adorable. I have a question on row 6. It says decrease 1, decrease 2, decrease 1. what type of stitch is used to decrease(hdc,dc,sc)? Also how do I decrease 2?

      1. Is it possible to give me the finished stitch count for row 5? I count 91 including the chain 3 stitch. I don’t seem to have enought stitches to complete row 6. On row 6 I finish the repeat only 4 times and only have 4 stitches remaining.

      2. Hi Debbie, sorry that you r stuck. My mistake. Use dc2tog to dec1 and dc3tog to dec2. It was the first time I wrote a pattern and so forgot to mention the keywords. Thanks a lot for pointing out these to me, I will soon update the pattern. Let me know if it still does not work..

  3. I have finished the Flower bonnet. I wish I could post pics to you. It came out wonderful. The only other items I found confusing was row 16 *repeat 11 times* I repeated 10 times to have a total of 11 popcorn stitch. Same with row 17 *repeat 22 times* I repeated 21 times to have a total of 22 popcorn stitches. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern 🙂

  4. Help! Just found you and this pattern. I’m totally confused as to what you’re trying to say like in row 2. You’re very specific until you get to the instructions between the asterisks (*) — *2dc, 1dc, 1fdc* and even other rows say 2dc, 2dc, etc.). Never saw anything written like that….I’m assuming is in each stitch and confused why why not say dc in next 6 stitches. Or whatever. Sometimes you do. For example, row 7 is perfectly clear. Most patterns add the number of stitches you should have at the end of all increasing or decreasing to enable us to make sure we’re accurate. Thanks for your help.
