    1. thank you for telling me! I'm checking into it. Boy, what an irritant and a compliment all rolled up into one! :D

  3. The beak is a bit confusing. Says to repeat rows 2-6, but wouldnt we have to do row 1 as well? Do we sew them together?

    ReplyDelete
  4. The bottom is slightly smaller so that the top beak tip curls over slightly. This helps with the beak shaping as well. And yes, they do get sewn together, thank you for pointing that out! If you prefer, you can make the top and bottom the same size. It will turn out just fine. :)

  6. Goin well with the pattern I just don't have a clue how to crochet the black bits on the eyes. Do I join the black to the eyes straight away or sew it on when done? Dunno how to start the black at all tbh :-( thanks a million for the pattern it's great, yours stupidly,
    Anna

  7. Annie, what I did was sew them on when done. Another way to do it would be to start with black and for the second round use white to outline. Hope this helps!

  9. What weight yarn do I use? Is it worsted, and how much is needed for the child's size? Thanks. This hat is too cute.

    ReplyDelete
  10. This is made using worsted weight yarn. I can't honestly say exactly how much is used...about a baseball sized amount when balled up (how's that for ambiguity?) Less than one skein is the most accurate I can be here, I'm very sorry. I hope it works out for you.

  12. Hi, I love this pattern, but the feathers have me stumped, can really tell from picture how they should look and I have done everything but the feathers

    ReplyDelete
  13. The feathers are tubes, closed on the tip and flaring out very slightly as it grows to the base. When finished they should resemble the fingers of a glove. Is this clear? Let me know if you need more clarification.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm a little stumped with the beak. I created the 2 parts. Now what? Whip stitch together then sew on? I'm not that good at sewing things together or on. This is truly a first for me.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes, Cindy K, that's exactly right. Sew them together from the base up so the top of the beak curls over the bottom slightly (because it's a row longer), then sew the whole shebang onto the hat :) I'm sure you'll do fine. If you make a mistake and the parts don't line up to your liking, simply undo and try again! I've ripped out my fair share of stitches, let me tell you!

  28. Kendra, Have you thought about linking your patterns to Ravelry? It's another great site for yarn lovers and crafters. This pattern is super cute and I am going to be making this hat for my son and my neighbor's 2 boys for Christmas. Thanks for a great creation!

  29. I love ravelry, but never submitted any patterns, the designers there are all fabulous and I never felt I was up to their standards. Thank you for the compliment! Maybe I will... :-)

  33. Kendra,
    I am such a visual person. Can you send me a larger picture of the hat. Want to make it for my 6 year old great grandson for Christmas but would like to see the stitches close up.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm so sorry, Barb, but this is the only picture I have of the hat and it is long gone. Is there a specific feature you need to see? I'd be glad to recreate it for you or send you a link to somewhere that has a closeup picture of the stitch you need to see.

  35. I have a son who loves earflap hats and he also loves Angry Birds! Thx so much for sharing this! I cant wait to make one for him!

  36. I am making this for a seriously ill little boy who loves Angry Birds! Thank you for sharing the pattern! The only trouble I've had is with the feathers. Mine do not look like fingers on a glove! :/ I often struggle with crochet directions because I am left handed and things seem backwards to me. However, your instructions are easy to follow!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hm, I'm not sure what the problem is without more details. Another way to make the feathers would be bottom up instead of top down (as instructions are written). Make a tube 8 stitches around and decrease by 2 stitches every 3 rows until you have 4 stitches left. fasten off and weave the end through the last 4 stitches and pull tight like a drawstring bag and tie off before you hide the end inside. For the smaller feather, start with a tube 6 stitches around.

  37. That sounds a little easier. What I did was to make red feathers like the black eyebrows and stitched them on to the top. They aren't tubes, but it worked! My teenage son now wants one for himself! Thanks for our help! I am going to post a picture on my facebook page Left2crochet.

    1. That was going to be my next suggestion if the tubes didn't want to work out for you this time! I saw the pic on your facebook page, it looks great!
