I loved doing these hats. The Hobby Hat was awful when the poor women had to wear them in WWII, I still think it is pretty homely. I have not found the buttons or eagle that I want to complete my hat but I am still looking. The Garrison Cap is adorable. Both work up easily, directions are clear and easy to follow. Had fun making them.
Easy to follow directions easy to use pattern! I’m so glad I found this sight!
