Head turning hat! Review by Robyn

I love the look and style of this hat. It is very quick to knit and I was able to use some 8 ply wool I had. I often find hats knit up to big for my head, but the fit of Lucy Hat is very good (I made the small) and the decreases to make the crown are perfectly designed. Now starting my next one!

Hat with Attitude Review by Dolores

I needed a unique hat pattern. This fit the bill. It was fun and fast to make. Good way to uses small amounts of yarn for the band. The finished product has attitude. I knit a flower to add pizazz. Can't wait for the winter.

Classic and quit knit! Review by Carly

This hat was much simpler and quicker to knit than I had anticipated. It is a very classic hat that looks good with almost any outfit and invites lots of compliments. It is also a design suited to many different colour combinations.

A lovely hat Review by Lisa

I made three hats in a few weeks using 4mm needles and DK yarn (most readily available in Australia). They look gorgeous and they knit up very quickly. The band needs some attention but it isn't a tricky knit - maybe for a strong beginner with a back up help plan, just in case. It is a striking design - part beanie, part cloche - that looks equally gorgeous in bright contrasting colours or elegant jewel tones. This makes it more suitable for more people over more of the year.

Beautiful hat Review by Melissa

I just finished my first of Im sure what will be many of these hats for my wardrobe this winter. I am new to knitting and still found this hat incredibly easy to knit. It took only two days to complete.

A great pattern, on my third hat! Review by Amy

I have made two Lucy hats as gifts this winter, with much exclamation at how cute they are, and am starting my third. This is a great pattern if you've made some simple hats and scarves and are ready to learn some new techniques, such as short rows, linen stitch, and using DPNs. The directions are clear. One recommendation: check out the emendation regarding the short rows on a first-timer, it was slightly confusing, but not with the emendation.
