Kid's Helmet Hat Reviewed by Cathy Listengart on 2011-11-08 ****
I tried this pattern on size 13 needles for my four year old. As suspected it was still way too small. I ended up pulling it out (only took a few hours anyway!). I then followed the toddler pattern, but cast on 48 stitches instead of the 36 in the pattern, and worked a few extra rows before shaping the top. I haven't put the ear flaps on yet but it is very cute and my son loves it!

Pattern says cast on 36 for toddler. This is much too small. I cast on 42 and it is still a little too snub for Ryan’s larger than average 1 1/2 year old head. As reflected in the reviews at Lionbrand, this pattern is incorrectly sized.
I used double strands. Next time I will try a larger needle to get a larger hat. I did little i-cord strings at the end of the ear flaps.
Cute none the less.

I was glad that I read the reviews first; and decided to take most recommendations to use the toddler size for my 11 month old granddaughter. This worked up very easily and quickly. I have already done 3 more; complete with "idiot" mittens (minus the thumb) to go along with her hat.

I just finished this hat for my 6month old grandson. After reading the other reviews I used the toddler pattern and it will probably just fit him. It came out very cute and I added braided ties and a pompom on the top using both colors. Very simple, but very small.

I used Alpine wool (I wanted something warmer) to knit this hat, #13 needles and added two stitches because the gauge did not quite match up. It turned out to be the perfect size for my 3 1/2 year-old. I also increased the size of the earflaps (picked up 10 stitches instead of the 7 indicated in the pattern) because I found them to be a little small.
Turned out great overall and makes for a warm winter hat.

I love this pattern, but as all the others stated, this hat is very small, I tweeked the pattern abit, and made it larger, it worked...I used a chunky yarn and size 11 needles.
All in all, this is a very cute pattern, and can be made with different colors, stripes, I will continue to use it...Becky 11/09/09

Like everyone else the hat was way too small. I made both sizes and I don't think either will fit my 2yr.old grandaughter. I agree with the lady adding the braided ties. I'm not sure if I can figure out how to make it bigger. It is a great easy pattern and I thank Lion Brand for this site!

I have known how to knit for years, but completing a project has always been a challenge because I have trouble reading patterns. This hat, however, was simple, quick and easy to understand (I only used one colour). I was able to complete it in an evening while my one year old son was sleeping. The toddler size fits my son perfectly. One comment, I had to use size 10mm to get the correct gage.
This project has motivated me to try more challenging patterns

Kid's Helmet Hat Reviewed by Christine Cole on 2009-07-29 ****
I made this pattern in a solid purple. It came out cute but the ear flaps are kind of low. My gauge may have been off for that to happen. I also think it looks better with some braided ties on the ear flaps. It was a very quick and easy pattern to follow; I made it in just hours. This was my first knitting project in over 3 yrs.
