Great pattern

I really loved this pattern! Instructions were detailed and there were video for every step. 👌 I made hat for one year old but my 5 year old firstborn wants own hat too, because little brother's hat is so cool. ❤️

Nice pattern, projector friendly, very minor problems only

I'm happy with how my first one turned out. The instructions are clear, and they steered me toward a good level of precision.

The layered A0 file went through my projector well. Sometimes I have to edit A0 PDF files to add a blank buffer zone around the edge, so that I can scroll the pattern to where I want it on the cutting table. For the rain hat pattern, I didn't need to do that, because the pieces were already well in from the edges.

The chin strap is tighter than I'd like. I'll probably wear it with the hook-and-loop only overlapping by 2-3cm, not the full 5cm. Another time I'll start with the elastic extra long, and delay attaching the loop piece and trimming the elastic until after a fitting.

I'm not sure I understood exactly where to put the last piece of seam sealing tape, but taping is only an optional extra, and the last piece seems less important than the earlier 5 pieces.

Perfect for Rain!

The gorgeous Sou'wester rain hat goes perfectly with Pixie Coats made from waterproof fabric. The pattern is another lovely release from Twig and Tale. As with all their patterns, it includes videos and handy links to help you through any tricky spots. The hat is a quick and extremely useful sew!

The perfect rain hat!

This pattern is so easy and it fit perfect on the first try! I haven't had a rain hat before except for the uniform one I wore when working for the USPS. I love my hat and plan to make one for my husband since we now live in a rainy area.
