Unfortunately, my pattern for Snoopy's Santa Hat didn't transfer in the correct size. The good news is that the change is easy to make. Just extend the bottom line of the triangle to 4 inches and then draw the side lines to intersect at the top. Hope this is helpful. Best wishes to all.

This is very confusing. How are you supposed to use a 1-inch styrofoam ball for the head and then a 1-inch pom pom for the nose. Also the hat comes out strange even with the 4 inch bottom. Furthermore, how is the yarn supposed to wrap around the ball (which is not what it looks like in the picture)? Please respond, thank you.
