An excellent pattern Review by Ila

This is a very well written pattern, easily followed and if you rearrange the colors you can get 4 hats from the yarns you choose.

Fun and interesting Review by Ruby

I love this pattern! I've made two so far and have had requests to make more. It's not difficult but there is enough variety to keep you interested - I particularly love the rib-style stitching at the end. It's also an easy-to-manage way to learn colourwork which I've never attempted before.
