I'm sorry to have to do this but I feel I must. Some people have been making things with my free patterns and selling them without my permission. I am taking this pattern down. Please visit my blog for more details.
Well that's just dumb and selfish. People will always try to rip you off, get something for nothing, but that's no reason to take it out on the rest of us honest folks! Copyright is stupid anyway...ideas can't be owned and anyone could come up with the same idea. I made this hat a couple years ago for my boyfriend and it is his favorite hat. The front post stitch (if I remember correctly) makes it very warm and thick. Now I want to make one for his dad for Christmas. Luckily this hat is not that original so I will easily be able to reconstruct the pattern from the previous hat. Thanks for posting the pattern once....I should have saved it.
