Lovely pattern Looking forward to making this for family and friends!!
Expression Fiber Arts patterns are beautiful! So many are free. You simply couldn’t ask for more!
I have not knitted it yet but the instructions seem straight forward. Can't wait. Thank you so much for the pattern.
Have crocheted a practice hat, it’s coming along very nicely. Ordered yarn from Chandi but it’s in transit, I’m sure it will be gorgeous when I’m done with the yarn I picked!
Making a practice hat with different yarn, what I ordered has not arrived yet! So far, pattern is easy to work and am liking how it’s coming along. I’m sure with yarn ordered it will be gorgeous!
Worked up really well and was a good size. Thanks
Love this hat. So nice to make for all my friends. Thanks for sharing..
My sister saw it and gave me a wink-wink -with cute hat - guess I'll be making a few of them.
On round 8 where we "maintain" the body of the hat, I am confused by the sc/dc switching. I started round 8, which begins with a dc (hope that is right). I ended round 8 with a sc. So, I would do another sc to start the next row? It doesn't seem to be an exact science to switch between sc and dc (they should be the opposite of the stitch below, according to the pattern). Hope this makes sense and someone can help me! I love the hat and want to finish. Thank you! Heidi Day
This pattern is incredibly easy to read. I used 2 strands of Vanna's Glamour to make my first Emma hat and had no issues other than I crochet very tightly so I needed to change hook size. It looks FABULOUS. And it was so quick to work up!
I made this hat for my daughter who was taking her first plane trip to London. She wore it to the airport and through the flight and looked so stylish. The pattern is very easy, fast and I used Elegy Dewy DK . What a beautiful hat to travel in!
Love this hat pattern. Made it for a friend.
This is an adorable hat and it is such a great and easy pattern set up. Very nicely done. Thank you Chandi!
Just finished crocheting the "Emma Hat". It was a pretty straight forward patter to read. I don't have any of the fabulous skeins from Expressions Fiber Arts, yet!..... So I used what I had on hand. I need to get some DK skeins. So until then, I think when I make another hat, I'll go a size down in hook. Mine came out a bit big. It was a fairly quick project, I completed the pattern in 2 days ( but I'm a quick crocheter). Can't wait to make some more in some lovely colors. Now just need to get my hands on some of the gorgeous yarn!.
This is so pretty! I think any young woman would want to wear it!
The pattern itself is easy to follow. It works up quickly and the stitches lay nicely. My hat didn't turn out the way the picture looks naturally. I didn't like the way my brim turned out so I reduced it down to about 3 or 4 rows, left the button as an accent but did not make the loop to go around the button. It just didn't look good. Other than that, the pattern was good and I like the way the hat looks now!
I am so glad that I purchased the pattern. I can't to start making it. Thank you for writing this pattern out. You are amazing.
This hat is very chic and I loved the way it looks and will go with my casual style. thanks so much for sharing and thanks for all your hard work!!
cute as a ...button hat. Definitely making it for my daughter! Still drooling over my yarn purchase, as beautiful as the picture
This pattern is very well written. It produces a stylish hat good for cold weather or with lighter or cotton silk or linen perfect for spring or summer.
I hope someday to be experienced enough to be able to complete this hat. I t is just a bit beyond my experience right now, but will try again after the holidays.
Love the pattern it's very beautiful and I can use different types of yarns to give it different looks . ..
I made using some cream Caron Super Soft I had on hand; just need to find a cute button to complete. It's really cute; will probably make more.
I haven't started this hat pattern yet, it seems easy to follow and can't wait to finish the pattern I'm doing to get this one going. Would recommend everyone getting it to make wether it be for yourself or as a gift.
Thank you so much for gifting another lovely pattern.
