I love this set and want to make it.  My son would love it.

How do I get the pattern? This is the first Men's pattern I have seen that makes me excited about what colors I can make this in.

If you have anymore wonderful  patterns for men, and there are very, very few of them, I would love to see them.

I tried making this pattern for my two sons and husband. The pattern needs a serious overhaul. First, it is very awkward to start the hat from the brim. Twice I started it with a chain, and tried to be very carreful not to twist it as I joined for the first row, but bysthe end of the first row, it was obviously twisted, and the ends would not meet properly. So, I gave up on that idea, and started the hat from the crown as most hat patterns are written. Secondly, although I did a gauge swatch and used the proper size hook, the hat pattern is sized wrong. According to the sizing, my boys should wear a medium, 22 inch hat; but when trying it on, that was just too large. I had to rip again and make the smallest size. Anyway, after a lot of frustration I finally got the hats done. Please rewrite this pattern so that others will avoid the same problems. Thanks!

I am a beginner and have so far been enjoying my time with small, simple projects. I found this pattern and decided to make a beanie for my husband. I was a bit overwhelmed reading the pattern the first time but after reading it through a few times I decided to go ahead. I have now completed the beanie and my husband loves it!!! Thank you so much for sharing the pattern.
