Made one for my husband and he loves it. The fit is spot on no alterations needed.
Really like it, I made both types, but I am not a fan of binding, prefer turning it through an opening, so I would suggest the an update of the pattern with an option for turning, I guess this mean a widening of the brim to include seam allowance for this. I would also suggest to add the option of a sweat band on the inside of the hat. Another expansion could be to add an elastic drawstring that runs inside the decorative band with an opening in the back, so that you can adjust for a hat that is to large for you.
I haven’t made it yet but look forward to making the Safari hat
I did not have the thime to make the bucket-hat yet. But I do like the pattern verry mutch and I intent to make it to juse this summer.
It is an easy to follow pattern, and the hat turned out exactly as expected. The sizing was spot on, and the hat fit my husband perfectly. I've only sewn one so far, but I think a few people on my Christmas list will have safari hats under the Christmas tree this year :-)
