What's not to love? I can see why this pattern has been so popular! Your fabric choices are super, isn't it wonderful that this is a free pattern too. I noted that the pattern ran a little smaller than I had thought it would, I printed it at a slightly larger scale on my printer which worked for me. I did a tester hat to measure the head circumference, which worked well.

FYI I enlarged the "Large" and it just barely fit my almost 6-year old's 21" cabeza... it would be my estimation that this pattern runs a teensy bit small. Great pattern, though. Her bird/flower hat is a sight to see!

Karen, Great review and beautiful hats. I made this pattern too. I made a “M” for my 18–month old and I can tell you it does run small. Making a Large for my 5-year-old, right now. Because of my experience with the “M” size I enlarged 10% and I’m using a 3/8 seam allowance. I tried the “surgeon cap” on her last night and it seems to have created enough ease that she will be able to wear it through the summer. Very good advice to test the cap for size – and remember when you’ve added the reversible “second later” it will be even a bit smaller. So go carefully with sizing and be sure to build in the ease you need.

JeanM, I recall finding this enlarging post. on the Oliver & S forum. Let us know if it works out! I might try enlarging next year.

Excellent review, it is great when more than the questions are answered. The hats look great, good colors and the stitching around it is precise. Awesome job

Very nice! I'm going to have to try this for my 8-yr old son...though I think I will have to try enlarging it a bit. I looked at the pattern, it looks like it wouldn't be too hard to make another size or two larger. Wish me luck!
