    (4 out of 5 stars)
    Having not knitted for years, I found this pattern clear and easy to follow. Very pleased with the result and feel inspired to knit more! My only difficulty was completing the last few rounds of the hat when the stitches are few in number and my circular needles were too long. Perhaps a note on managing this aspect of the hat would be helpful? Apologies if there is a note somewhere and I’ve missed it.
