  1. The best hat ever!

    Posted by Gayla Napier on 9th Feb 2013

    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

    Posted by Annbeth on 26th Jan 2013

    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.
    Thank you

  3. cute simple hat

    Posted by JanG2 on 10th Jan 2013

    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"

  8. Perfect Hat Pattern

    Posted by Carol on 8th Dec 2012

    This pattern is perfect. It can be adapted easily for womens and childrens sizes. My project is chemo caps for the ladies and gents at my infusion clinic. A project like this helps me use all my left over yarns.
