  3. I have been searching for a beanie hat pattern for my granddaughter who was trying to get one off of ebay from Hong Kong of all places. Well I told her I could probably find a pattern and make it. So lo and behold i found your pattern and the funny thing is it will be going to Washington, Joint Base Lewis Mcchord. Isn't that funny where you live? I went up there a couple of months ago to visit, its the first time I have been away from my four grandkids since the oldest was born 11 years ago and I couldn't stand it. So now I'm going back at Christmas, and hope to have a few hats done by then. I wish my knitting was good enough to make them that way but I just never got good at it, so I must stick with crochet. Thanks for this great pattern.
