Don't be fooled - it's not a fedora Review by Anna
Rating

This is really a bucket hat, not a fedora. The top is circular, rather than the oval or egg shape you'd need for a true fedora.

Aside from that, it's a pretty good pattern - just be aware you need either a doubled yarn (I used Colinette Hullabaloo doubled) or a REALLY bulky yarn, squished down on small needles, to get the firmness for the hat. Hard on the hands.

Cute leaves though, and it's a cute hat. Just not a fedora.
