Very Chic! Reviewed by Annette on 2009-01-16 ****
I made this hat in all one color. The visor was too protruding for my liking so I shortened the visor by crocheting only the first 6 rows instead of the 8 and decreased the edging by 2 stitches on each visor side. I also had to use a smaller hook for the edging row since the hat was a little too big for my smallish adult head. Perfect fit now and it can be worn several ways, pulled back or to the side more like a beret. And it's warm!

LIKED THE HAT AND ALSO USED A SOLID COLOR.BUT DIDN'T LIKE THE PEAKS THE INCREASES MADE IN THE FRONT. SKIPPED THEM AND JUST CROCHETED THOSE ROWS ON 90 STITCHES. gAVE THE HAT MORE OF A BERET SLOUCH.ALSO DECREASED THE NEEDLE SIZE FOR PEAK TO MAKE IT A LITTLE SMALLER. ADDED A BRAID CHAIN USING 4 STRANDS OF SUEDE YARN AND SEWED IT ACROSS PEAK(LIKE A GREEK FISHERMANS HAT)AND ADDED A DECORATIVE SHANK BUTTON TO EACH SIDE. STYLISH-AND FINISHED THE CAP OFF PERFECTLY. MADE ONE IN THE DENIM SUEDE ALSO TO GO WITH MY JEANS AND JACKET.

Suede Cap Reviewed by Vicki on 2008-04-22 *****
I made this hat in red and it turned out real cool. I love it and I get lots of compliments when I wear it. My brother wants me to make one for him in black. I cut a piece of cardboard and put it in the brim to keep it stiff. You can wear it in different styles. I get a lot of compliments from men when I wear the brim to the back. Will definitely consider making more in other colors. I was new to crocheting when I made it so I had a little of trouble with some of the directions (prob. me not the directions) but I was able to improvise and it turned out fine. Previous reviewer right, looks better in person than as pictured.

Suede Cap Reviewed by Terry Steinerts on 2008-04-16 *****
Just finished making this cap in a solid nonstriped version. It took one ball and a third of another. It came out great. I didn't block the hat, nor would I block it because it has a real nice slouch to the hat part (kind of like a beret). Also I wouldn't wear it all poufed up on my head like in the project picture, but with the hat section pulled back on my head like a beret with a brim. Instructions very good and did switch to #8 hook for sc'ing the brim together. I also just stuffed all the brim loose ends into the brim when I sc'ed it together. Less weaving in of ends. I would definitely make this hat again. The picture with this pattern does not do it justice.

Suede Cap Reviewed by Fides Scassellati on 2008-01-25 *****
This cap is easy and quick to make, and gets lots of compliments. I've made this design in Lion Brand Suede as well as other 4-ply acrylic yarns to give as gifts, for charity, and for myself. My sister liked mine so much I had to give it to her, so I got myself more suede yarn to make another! The brim design is unique, as it has a padded effect with a nice curvature built in, and I've been able to use it to improve the design on other caps. When using a smaller gage yarn or needle, the instructions are great for a stylish child's cap.
