"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

My daughter's boyfriend always has a hat on. This pattern will be perfect for him. I could make up several in different colors. I hope that he will value the fact that they are homemade. Of course if I make them in her favorite colors she will be borrowing them lol

I can think of several "guys" on my list who would wear this hat. Great pattern with easy to follow instructions. This is a must have in my pattern file.

I can't get the pattern, just the initial page with three people wearing the hat. Can you help me. I'm not the greatest on a computer

The pattern is a PDF file, which means you will need Adobe Reader to open it. You might already have it. Scroll down to where it says "DOWNLOAD NOW" and click on that. If you have the reader, it should open it. If you don't, you will need to get a copy. It's free. Just go to any search engine and look it up. I hope that helps.

This looks like the pattern I've been looking for. My son saw a hat that says it is English rib. The crown ends up in 4 sections, so it looks like 4 seams at the top. Will this pattern do that?

I was working on this hat and the pattern disappeared. Is this a problem with the site or "she makes hats"? This is not good. I won't be using this site or reading this blog. Thumbs down.

I downloaded the PDF at the bottom of the "She Makes HAts" page and had no problems. Maybe it is your computer?

Simple hat with very easy pattern. I made this for my grandfather with Bernat chunky yarn in military green color. The adult size fits beautifully. It is very stretchy! Just one note for pattern, I needed to add 2 more rows of (K2tog around) for the crown, to complete this hat. But, it's a great basic hat pattern. Thanks!
