    Posted by Unknown on 12th Jan 2015

    This is a great project for a beginner. Easy and looks great.

  2. Great Looking Hat

    Posted by Beulah on 28th Dec 2014

    I have not made the hat yet but have read through the pattern and know it will be something I will enjoy making.

  3. Great Hat for men

    Posted by AJ on 15th Nov 2014

    Easy to knit, would definitely recommend this pattern.

  4. Good pattern for men

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Jan 2014

    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.

  5. Alpaca Hat

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Nov 2013

    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!

  6. Heads up

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

  7. nice simple hat

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Sep 2013

    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.

  8. Nice easy pattern

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Sep 2013

    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. :)

  9. super easy peasy hat for guys and gals

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Sep 2013

    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!

  10. easy pattern

    Posted by Carmella Gomory on 23rd Jul 2013

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