Aaron's Hat Trick #3 Reviewed by Sarah H on 2012-09-27 ****
This turned out great! I followed other suggestions and used an N hook. The largest size should be just right for my dad's big melon. I might make the same size for me since it looks cute oversized and won't give me such awful hat head! I didn't do stripes on the first one. It came together in about 3 hrs. Good pattern.

I made so many of these last year. They were such a hit with everyone, especially the men! I did try different yarns: such as, 2 strands of a soft #4 yarn and K hook--love love this pattern

I liked this pattern, although I did follow the recommended alterations. I used a size N hook and the large turned out perfectly for my husband. I made another for my nephew with a few changes and plan to make more.

Aaron's Hat Trick #3 Reviewed by Nicole on 2011-01-23 **
I just made this hat folloring what one of the other reviews suggested and it came out great! I am a small female and made the large hat and it fits wonderfully. The medium would have worked well too but I wanted extra room for my hair :). Small would have been too tight.

Aaron's Hat Trick #3 - Pattern needs some work... Reviewed by Jayme Jordan on 2010-08-18 ***
As a crocheter who has successfully completed many "advanced" level projects, I'm very comfortable in my ability to read patterns and single crochet in the round.
This pattern is a nice "starting point," but it needs some serious help. Thanks to a suggestion on a review on one of the ten versions of this hat, I modified the second round to "2sc in each sc," then skipped right to round 4. (This gets rid of the weird point on top of this hat.)
I also had to use an N hook size to even get remotely close to the right finished hat size. The large size as written barely fit a 5 year old's head.
I also needed to add several rounds to get the hat long enough....and don't even try to follow their ear flap placement. It's waaay off. Stitch the first one on, then have your recipient actually put the hat on so you know where to place the second.

That said - this pattern is a good starting point for creativity. I left off the front flap and added embellishments to create a "piggy face" hat and and a "monster face" hat. The kids love them.

I'm now working this project in double-strand Homespun "Rococo" for my sister - per her special request.

GOOD LUCK!

My oldest attends and plays basketball for the US Naval Academy and my youngest loves ear flap hats, sooo...After making the hat and before securing the front flap, I crocheted a chain and secured the "N" to the flap along with the "star". This could easily be done for any High School or College letters (or even a mascot) with their school colors.

The pattern lost me somewhere in the "Next Round" part, but I just kept single crocheting in even until it fit on my son's head. I did not do the finishing around as it was getting very bulky.

He loves it and will reveal it at this Saturday's game. Hope it lasts for the next 3 years! I'm sure big brother and the team will be impressed with his spirit ;-)

I must have made 20 or 30 of these hats last year. It was great fun. This year I have already had a couple girls ask me to make more! I really didn't want to - but as you can see, I am back here downloading the pattern AGAIN! As you can see from the pictures, my mom wasn't one of the ones asking me to make her another one! LOL!Thanks for the great site! I love your yarns! Wendy S.
