Almost a year ago, I started this blog. One of my first posts was about crocheting a fisherman's hat for Father's Day. I finished the first hat in September, submitted it with a number of other such patterns for publication with a major yarn company for a proposed booklet. Obviously, that did not pan out.
At the encouragement of my wonderful CGOA mentor, I figured out how to self-publish. And tonight I finally figured out how to post it as a pattern for sale on Ravelry!
This hat has everything that the commercial ones do: places to hang hooks and lures, a wide brim, and neck protection from the sun that can be rolled up and tucked into the hat on overcast days. The tapered design allows it to fit a head circumference of 22" to 24".
The best part is that it works up pretty quickly. If you are interested in ordering a copy of this pattern,
