Hat was very easy to make until I got to the part where you need to change to double pointed needles. They were awkward to use, probably too long for the project. I think the next time I make it I will change to a small circular needle instead. I used a chunky yarn the first time and am using double strand of worsted weight on the second one. The instructions are very clear, easy for a beginner to follow. I blocked mine so it wouldn't look so long and narrow.

Just finished making the hat-first time using
DPNs (self-taught)! Instructions were on the mark...Would recommend to everyone....Had a
problem with yarn I selected- went from thin to thick every few feet, otherwise hat turned out perfect and more importantly - FAST!

Ideal pattern for men. Used chunky yarn to make a very warm hat, that's masculine. Made for people I know who work outdoors.

I downloaded this pattern for my mother to make for my son. She said it was quick and easy and my son loves it and fits great.

Hat worked up very nice and looked really good but it was way too small even though I worked up a gauge swatch and it was correct. Apparently my husband has a huge head. :)

I'm about halfway done--I think it's pretty easy and I'm hoping that the binding off will be a smooth transition, which I'm sure it will be. At first when I began, I thought it was going to be too big, but it definitely took shape as I got into the meat of the hat. I'm knitting with a beautiful lofty yarn called Ariosa; it's chunky but lightweight, 100% Merino by classic Elite Yarns. I found it on sale at a yarn store in Portland,OR that my new beau insisted on visiting. Yea me!

I was able to use the 5 pointed needle for the decrease and bind off section, because the pattern was easy to understand.

If you're a guy who wants a great fitting hat - that doesn't leave "marks" and fits just exactly tight enough that you don't know you have it on / then this is the hat for you! Delivering a finished hat tomorrow hoping to get pics to post

I used yarn from my stashand was a little off on the gauge.I made it a little longerand it worked.I also just made it in a all tweedy yarn.It fit nicely and I wii probably use pattern again.

the pattern is a simple one
only thing - I added 2 inches to make it longer 8" is just too short, most hat patterns are for 10"
