I don't know about you folk, but Clara certainly had me pegged. Up here where winter hats (generally toques) are an absolute necessity, I've been 'getting by' with one made me by a friend (from the sleeve of an old tee-shirt), one given me by a friend (a memento of his home on Skye) and an old one crocheted me at least 20 years ago by my sister! I did make myself a wee hat once, but it's more decorative than functional. So...I'm definitely going to give this one a try!

thanks for the pattern! I wish more hat patterns went this way (top down). It would save me a lot of false starts and swatching!

Happy New Year!!
I was overjoyed when I open one of my Christmas presents and found a few skeins of yarn from Quince & Co (had it on my top 3 list). I will use one for the Shoemaker's Hat. Thanks so much for sharing.

I'm just back from my LYS with a skein of plump, chunky, singel ply, wool/lama blend Cascade Yarn in a shade of claret. I will be ready to cast on the Shoemaker's Hat as soon as the second sock is off the needles. Tomorrow afternoon with any luck.
Thanks for the pattern Clara. A good start to the knitting season! And, while I was in the yarn store I also signed up for a class in double knitting in February.

I have knit and crocheted hats before but always for someone else. I decided this is the one for me!! Thanks for sharing the pattern.

Thanks for the great looking pattern. I've been having fun this fall with the Weekend Hats book from Interweave press. Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Melissa LaBarre have collected 25 fun hats, many of them top down. I have done three so far and I'm working on a fourth. I used Quince Chickadee on the welted toque so now I have a reason to try the Puffin.

P.S. I'm just casting on now (almost 12 hours after my original post!! ) -- using Elann Peruvian Highland Chunky in Forest Green Heather (and yes, it's from my stash! ) Also using 6 mm dpns because I don't have any 6.5 mm ones and I can't wait till I can go into town to get some!

I love this pattern! I don't have any chunky yarn in my stash, but I'm going to cast on with worsted and knit until the hat fits me. Thank you, Clara!

Wow, this is a very fast and easy pattern! I'm almost done only one day after cast on. That is a record for me.

I downloaded the pattern yesterday and went right to my LYS. There was no chunky in my stash so I bought a skein, came home, and cast on. What a fun pattern. Thanks, Clara!

This is going on my needles next. I just happen to have one skein of chunky purple yarn in my stash.

My first hat's finished and looks great -- but it's too small for me! I think, given the materials I have (lots of the yarn, but only 6 mm needles), I'll cast on another and add about 4 stitches. That should do it.

My hat looks great and was super easy. I used Cascade Covington in deep lake and love the color changes. Thanks again, Clara.
