The Fell and Dale is traditional style Flat Cap.
Medium weight woven fabrics such as tweed, corduroy or denim are perfect for the Fell and Dale Flat Cap. The Fell and Dale is ideal for intermediate sewists.
There is also an option for adding elastic to the back which makes the fit/sizing more flexible.
The instructions give detailed directions for suitable fabric choices (and don’t let the idea of a peak/brim put you off, there are several alternatives including re-purposing a milk bottle!)
There are 11 sizes from Newborn up to XL adult.
This listing is for 4 downloadable PDF files: Instructions, a print-at-home pattern, a copy shop pattern and a projector pattern.
Print the print-at-home pattern on A4/legal/letter sized paper.
Take the copy shop file to a professional printer to print onto large sheets of paper.
Use the projector file to project the pattern straight onto your fabric.

The measurement charts for all W&W patterns can be found here.
The pattern is created in layers meaning you can print just the layers (sizes) you need.

I’ve made two of these caps out of corduroy for my children and they fit perfectly according to measurements! The instructions were clear and I sewing was a breeze. I’ll surely make more of these 😊
I’d welcome an earflap option for the little ones 😁

This was the first hat I ever sewed myself and I’ve continued to make more of these as my kids outgrow the old ones because I love the pattern. I’ve gotten nothing but rave reviews, everything from people thinking it’s the cutest thing they’ve ever seen on a 1 year old to disbelief that you can actually sew one yourself.. Attaching the sides to the top was most definitely a bit fiddly but (with a little patience and plenty of pins) the instructions have ample explanation to help you through.
