Toddler Owl Hat Reviewed by Stacie on 2013-01-23 ***
While this is a super cute hat.....the measurements are completely wrong!! I do crochet somewhat tight, so I chose to go with an I hook and I even added in a couple of extra rows because it looked so short. Now that it's done, it barely fits my 3 1/2 month old! This hat only fits 0-3 months, not anywhere near the size needed for a toddler!
