- It’s very basic- great for a beginner sewer. Buy it- especially if you can get it super cheap like I did. Use it over and over for Christmas gifts, etc. I definitely got my money out of this pattern.
- Sewing the darts in the pattern was slightly confusing. I was trying to overthink it. Just follow the pattern directions for darts and the hat will turn out as it should.
- The only thing I disliked about this pattern is that the directions call for slip stitching the ears onto the hats. I made these hats for gifts, and I want them to stand up to winter wear and the washing machine. I don’t know about you, but my slip stitching will NOT stand up to the washing machine. To remedy this, I sewed the ears into the outer hat portion when stitching the hat together. I honestly have no idea why the pattern wasn’t designed this way already.
Linking to these great parties!
