But, this was the view outside my window on Monday, 11 November. So, I figure this review should finally be posted. I used pictures that I took shortly after sewing them, so I don't have pictures of the hats and mittens in action. You will just have to trust me on that one.
You will need fleece, a closure (snap or button) and elastic to complete the pattern. The elastic is for the mittens. I lined the hat in another layer of fleece, so if you want to do that, just add some to the yardage. The lower portion of the hat already calls for a double layer, so you will not need a lot to line it fully.
The skill level required is really minimal. This is a very practical beginner pattern and definitely something that I would use for a young person; maybe a tween, to use as a first project.
I choose the pattern because I was offered a chance to test it. But I am always on the look out for a hat pattern as they are a fun accessory that you can usually finish in a sitting.
Bad: The price seemed a bit high at $7.95 for just a hat and mittens. But, since it was such a well designed hat with a wide range of sizes, you could likely get your money's worth if you plan on sewing for more than one child.
