    This pattern is a wonderful way to use up any scarps or fat quarters you dont know what to do with. I must have made about 6 hats so far for various babies. children and myself! Takes around an hour to knock up and would probably be even less if i keep practicing. :)!

    I made two baby hats last year, and three for my one year hold this year and one for his Mom. Love the pattern, instructions are great and if you take your time, it works up wonderfully. I copied the pattern several times, so that I could cut out and keep each size handy. I’ve got my eye on a few more patterns to try as well.

    A really nice pattern that was well written to allow me, a beginner sewer, to end up with a beautiful, wearable hat. I’ve made two now, one for my daughter size 1-2 and one in xs adult sized for her great granny. Both were well received and fit lovely.

    This hat was a hit! Made matching hats for my daughter, son-in-love and grandson for his third birthday. Everyone attending asked for one of their own. Can be whipped up in less than an hour

    I have now made 7 of these hats and everyone has loved them. my daughter lives in Her’s lol.

    I find the key to these is measure everyone’s head that you are making them for, each head is different. I love the fact that each one I have made is a different fabric pattern, so they are not the same. I’m yet to make my one but I will do in time. I have been told they are so comfy to wear.

    I’m a beginner and the instruction are easy to follow these do take me a couple of hours to make but as I make more, I’m sure I can cut the time in half.

    I have made 4 now all matching for my Godsons, such an easy pattern to follow and detailed.
    It can be made in less than an hour and great when you have left over fat quarters laying around. Thank you!
