 Extra tips and Note!! Don’t forget to read J

 

To make the hat firmer you can make the hat using two strands of yarn held together throughout and J hook Increasing until the diameter measures Newborn: 4", 3-6 Months:5", and 6-12 months 6" then work downward until hat measures Newborn: 4.5", 3-6 Months 5.5" and 6-12 Months 6.5" and for the ears also holding two strands of yarn throughout and H hook 5mm work increasing until diameter measures 3" then add one last round to give the ears depth and bind off. This set of instructions is just to make the hat a lot more firm. Now my photos are using just one strand so it will look cute either way. Well I hope this made sense to you and again if you have questions or need me to clarify it more please just contact me.

Good Morning I made a video for you but I guess it was to long for it to upload sorry. Ok for the 12 mo size I fold the hat in half count down 3 rows and start sewing on the ears at the fold that marks half of the hat and I sew down to the top of the 4th row from where you started. I sew inside the "canal" of the ear so it is invisable right behind the border of the ear then I sew back up at the end of the post of that last row of stitches to give it stability. Repeat for other ear. Hope this helped have a great weekend.

Good Evening Lisa to fit a child 12 mo to about 3 (all kids are different) Head Circumference: 18" to 20 " Just increase the hat until the diameter measures 6 3/8 and work downward until hat measures about 6.5 in deep (your preference)

Hi, was wondering, the last comments say to work with 2 strands of yarn throughout the pattern, is that true for the hat? Do you work with 2 strands for the main hat as well, or just the ears? Thanks for the clarification!

How would I make one for a toddler, say 2-3 yrs old? I love this hat and I want to make one for my granddaughter who will be one and her brother who is two going on three? They love mickey and watch it constantly and will be mickey and minnie for halloween, and this will be perfect. Thanks

Good Morning Mary! All you have to do is increase the hat until the diameter measures 6.5 inches then work the length that you need. My daughter is 2 and I made hers 7" deep to cover her ears but this hat is supposed to resemble the Mickey ears therefore not meant to go that far down. I guess it's just a matter of preference :) hope that helped.

Hi! I just wanted to say I love your patterns! I was also wondering if there was a way to adjust the size to fit an adult? I have a friend who loves Minnie Mouse and she would absolutely LOVE this! Thanks :)

Super cute pattern, one if the best I have come accross! A friend of mine is a Mickey fanatic. If I were going to make this for an adult female, about how many inches should the increases measure? Thanks in advance for your help!

Good Morning Jeanie! Yes I have a tutorial videos on the ears. It's a two part tutorial and the links are posted at the beginning of the pattern or you can just go to the Video tutorials tab at the left of your screen. Also at the end of the pattern there are "bonus" Instructions on how to make the hat and ears firmer. One last suggestion would be to use black pipe cleaners and crochet them into the final round. I hope this helped. Have a great weekend!
