Disappointing Review by Yvonne
Rating

I am a skilled knitter, crocheter, and I found that this pattern was a lot more time consuming than knitting a similar hat. Usually crocheting is faster than knitting, but not this pattern. As well, the short row procedure produced very inconsistent rows unless you are always counting every single row! I have made a knit 1 purl 1 rib hat that knit up faster and produced a more consistent hat than this. Sorry, but I find this pattern disappointing.
