Well snow last week, blazing sun this week and a baby with very little hair means I’ve been caught off guard. Time to get the sun hat made.
I found a darling pattern (completely free) and had to try it out. Make sure you check the two inch square to check your printing is accurate. Mine was a little small but I went for it anyway and low and behold the hat is a little small too. I also think the pattern contains too much hand stitching, is a little messy and makes it more difficult to make than it actually is.
So I had a little Google and found that this blog has a much better method of construction so after I reprinted the pattern and followed the medium size I finally have a reversible and pretty special hat.
