This pattern is named after the inspirational aviator, Amy Johnson. She was born in Yorkshire and was the first woman to fly solo from Britain to Australia. I consider both Yorkshire and Australia to be my home, and my maiden name was Johnson so I feel quite a connection with Amy.

I was terrified of sewing a hat until I suddenly had to do it in a couple of hours for a photoshoot the next day. All my fears disappeared as soon as I started the AJ Aviator as the instructions are all super clear and it turned out fantastic! The construction is not nearly as complicated as I imagined and it took me about 2 hours tops. It’s gonna fit for next winter as well, I love it!

This hat is so easy to sew and it looks amazing! I had some scraps from a coat and over trousers and now my little has a complete set to wear out!
The hat is so cozy too if lined with fleece! Can’t wait to sew up a few more! 🤩🤩🤩

I’m going to Scandinavia soon and wanted a black hat to keep warm.
This is an amazing pattern. I used cotton duck canvas for the outer and polyester sherpa fleece for the inner.
It was easy to construct due to the excellent pattern and thorough intructions. I used a walking foot due to the thickness and bulky seems and it sewed together beautifully. I’m going to make a few more 😊
