I am going to use this pattern to make hats for children in an orphanage in Mexico. I'm a beginner & was going to print this but can't seem to get it to print. Is there a trick or do you have it blocked? I just don't always have my computer to look at when I'm crocheting. Thank you for the free pattern by the way. It will bless many children!

I'm glad you got it to print, because I wasn't sure how to fix it, lol. I'm glad you like the pattern. Just in case you didn't realize it, it is sized for adult women. I'm assuming you're going to resize it? I'm sure the kids will love and appreciate your work. :)
