Ruffle Sunhat

I've just finished knitting this ruffled baby sunhat for my little girl who is due in 3 weeks.  I used sirdar snuggly baby crofter in shade 151.  It was a very quick knit, has taken probably 3 hours.  I used 4mm circular needles as I am a fairly tight knitter. So would recommend people who generally knit to correct gauge use 3.75mm needles.  The pattern uses multiples of 7 stitches to create the ruffles, so to make a bigger size, add a multiple of 7 stitches
