Edging
Round 1: Work a round of single crochet with white fur around. Join with the beginning stitch
Round 2: Work 1 double crochet in each single crochet around.  Join with the beginning stitch.
Round 3: Work 1 single crochet in each stitch around. Join with the beginning stitch.

Pom-Pom
There are a million ways to make a pom-pom. Just search YouTube and you will see what I mean....
Here is my favorite simple way
1. Wrap yarn around 2 or 3 fingers about 50 times.
2. Slip off fingers and tie a tight knot around middle.
3. Cut loops, trim and fluff
Use yarn needle to attach pom-pom to hat.
HO! HO! HO!
 MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

When I made mine for my baby girl it didn't look the same. It sort of funneled and was really stiff. I'm using vannas choice yarn. Also my baby is 3 months old. Would the newborn size be correct for her size? her head is about roughly 38-39 cm.

Mine is turning out the same. I'm using Red Heart, and it's stuff and looks like a choppy funnel.

This is adorable. I ran into an issue with the pattern though. There is a slight mistake with the math in the stitches. I adjusted and the hat came out great! When you are supposed to increase from 48 stitches per round to 58 using the pattern 1, 1, 1, 1, 2 the numbers are off. It will increase to 56, not 58. Adjusting for this miscalculation will help your hat turn out better. I was going nuts trying to find where I was missing a stitch. Since I could not find the missing stitches, I tried adding to get to 58, and the hat just turned out wonky. Making the 56 adjustment and subsequent adjustments later in the pattern really helps! I love your creations! And your patterns are so cute!

What does it mean when it says "continue on for the length of the cap?" What is the length supposed to be for each head size of pattern? eg, baby, toddler, child, adult. Thanks!
