    Is the band and strap on the western hat crochet or was something else used?

    Thank You for your help,

    Sandy


  2. I used an 1/8″ ribbon for the tie. I have also made one using a tie crocheted with thread. Either works very nicely.

  3. julia Says:

    Thanks, i love your blog, especially the AG patterns. My little sister has a doll that I make clothes for.


  4. That’s wonderful! Thank you so much.

  5. esther webb Says:

    i made the hat and i love it. now im on the vest and im confused, rnd 20-26. i got that, now i need to attach yarn again. rnd 13, skip 4 dc after the strap. i just cant imagine it.


  6. Once you finish rnd. 26, this completes the first shoulder. Now go back to rnd. 13, skip the next 4 sc (this will create an armhole), attach the yarn in the very next sc, work the following rnds, to rnd. 23. Then you will want to go back to rnd. 13 again, skip the next 4 sc (this creates the 2nd armhole)and complete the following rnds. This will make the vest in one piece, so you will only have to sew at the shoulder seams. Hope this helps.

  9. thanks so much. you really give this site your best. great job!!!

  10. Shirley Says:

    On the vest, did you mean to switch between sc & Dc, or is this a mistake?


  11. 2 rows are worked in sc, then the next row is worked in dc……2 more rows worked in sc, then the next row in dc…….this is done up to row 23…..is this what you mean??? Hope this helps.

  12. Shirley Says:

    That’s what I was questioning. Thanks. Next time, you might want to be more explicit about making the back too.


  13. My pleasure……I’m reviewing all patterns this year to try to make them as quick and easy as possible. Wish me luck!

  14. Lynne cyr Says:

    Is this hat and boot pattern made for babies or dolls. I’m trying to make one for a newborn.

  15. ashley S. Says:

    round 4 is very confusing to me.. it says increase evenly by 4.. but where and when? Where do I increase by 4?

  16. ashley S. Says:

    I apologize, round 4 of the hat pattern is where I am confused.. How and when do I increase evenly by 4?


  17. Thank you for your interest. It really doesn’t matter where you add the increases as long as they are spread out evenly. Since it looks a bit like an oval……You cound do the increases just before and just after the “rounded ends”. This will help to keep the oval shape….Hope this helps.

  18. Alana Brown Says:

    Will the hat for this pattern fit a newborn?


  19. It should if you move up to a worsted wt. yarn (or a cotton yarn), and maybe a G hook. You may want to add a row or 2 before you start the brim.

  20. Alana Brown Says:

    I made it with a 4 and g but still worried it might be too small. Thanks for the advice and pattern. I’ll try adding a full rows.


  21. I sent you an email. Also, the circumference for a newborn should work out to about 14″ (give or take).


  22. What do you mean by not turning in this or following in rnds? I’m trying to do the hat and am having a hard time getting it started for some strange reason. I’m ch6, and then when it starts the 2sc in 2nd ch from hook, I’m assuming to start a second row. However, when I sc in the next 3 ch and then 3sc in next ch, I end up back at the beginning and in your instructions it states not to turn in this or follow in rnds. Assistance would be greatly appreciated.


  23. Rnd. 1: ch6, 2sc in 2nd ch from hook, then…..sc in next 3 ch, 3sc in next ch, then-working in the back loops of the beginning ch, sc in next 4 ch, this will get you all around the beginning ch, so you can now join with slst to beginning sc, ch1, do not turn in this or following rnds. 12sc

    Once you complete all the directions on rnd 1, it should look like a little tiny oval rug. All rnds are joined with a slst to the beginning sc in each rnd.

  24. Sherri-Lynn Says:

    I’ve done this hat a few times. I finished all the edges (hat and vest) with a reverse single crochet. It looks SO cool…like a rope edging. Also could be done in a slightly different tone/color.


  25. That’s great! I love the look of revsc as an edging! I’m a firm believer that patterns are only suggestions and should be done in any way you like! You go girl!

  26. Karen Says:

    I am on the first section of the backpack and am a little confused in between row 2 and 3 it says repeat round 2 for 8 inches does that mean I make additional rows until it is 8 inches in size or 8 additional inches in size? Or do I keep going in the same row… Which wouldn’t really work… I’m just a little confused. Please help


  27. Repeat row 2 until the project measures 8″….you will need to work 12sc back and forth until the backpack measures 8″. Once it reaches 8″, move on to row 3.

  28. Renee Says:

    You totally lost me in the assembly of the pouch. You say to fold as in the picture. The picture is showing the pouch on the doll therefore does really show the detail of how to fold it. The same for the small pouch. Cannot tell from the picture any detail of how to fold the small pouch. The entire assembly directions have frustrated me. How do I fold the pouches?


  29. If you download the PDF pattern from here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ag-western-set there are pictures of the assembly.

  30. Renee Says:

    I do have the download. The pictures do not help. So let’s try this… in the last sentence of the assembly it says”slst through all thickness at top of third pouch”. What is third pouch? The directions are for a back pouch and a front pouch. That adds up to two pouches… what’s the third pouch?.

  31. Renee Says:

    I figured it out. Thanks for your time
