In 2 different sizes, for men & women, it makes a perfect last minute gift.
Enjoy!

I LOVE this pattern! I was wondering if I could get your permission to make and sell them to my friends. I also have an etsy shop and was wondering if I could post a couple hats on there to see how they would sell.
Thank you so much for this pattern!

Hey Shara! I came across this hat pattern while watching a youtube video by The Crochet Zombie, and I love it! I was wondering if I could get your permission to sell a couple at a local craft show I'm trying to prepare for. Thank you so much!

Hi Shara,

I found your gorgeous pattern on ravelry, and its just what I need. A friend has asked me to make her a hat and I wondered if I could get your permission for making and selling the finished article. I don't have a web page but I do have a Facebook page and I will link the finished photos back here to credit your pattern. Would that be OK? But anyway thanks for total awesomeness in the design department!!!

Shara said...

Hello Kathryn :-) Thank you so much for taking the time to write and ask permission :-) I really appreciate it!! I'm glad you like the pattern too! I'm happy for you to sell the hats you make using this pattern, all I ask is that if you are selling them online, such as via Facebook, that you add a link or note in the item description letting people know where the pattern is from :-)

Laura said...

Hi, Shara! I'm in North Carolina, USA. I have made the Voyages Beanie for my husband's aunt, and his cousin promptly put it on. They both love it, as so my friends on FB who have seen it. I'm asking permission to sell it on my Etsy shop, giving you full credit for the design.

Please check out my page to get an idea of what I have there. This is definitely one of my favorite patterns so far.

Thanks!

Shara said...

Hello Laura :-) Thank you for your message. I'm glad you're enjoying the pattern. I'm happy for you to sell the hats you make using this pattern, just put a quick note in the item description letting people know where the pattern is from :-) And thank you for taking the time to write and ask, I really appreciate it :-) Your shop is gorgeous too!!!

Hi again, Shara! As I just wrote to you on the other post, I will leave my question about the Voyages Beanie here in the right place! I have a question regarding the round that goes back to colour A after having done the round with colour B. You should skip a stitch the entire way around the hat, right? If this is the case, wouldn't it be more clear to place the asterisk before "skip 1 st"? The way it's written, to me it seems as if you only skip that first time and don't repeat the skip after each 1ch. I (and the rest of the CAL group!) would love to hear your opinion! Thanks so much and just *love* your patterns! :) Lisa

Hello Lisa :-) Thank you so much for letting me know you had found this anomaly in the pattern. You're 100% right, and I have updated the pattern accordingly :-)
I don't employ tech editors or test knitters/crocheters to test my free patterns, like I do with my paid patterns, so it's just me doing the testing and occasionally I miss little omissions such as this one, so I really do appreciate observant readers who contact me should there be any errors :-)
Amazingly out of the 1,000's of people who have made hats using this pattern, you are the first person to contact me to let me know about this error, so I really do appreciate you taking the time to write and let me know :-)
And, oddly, with all the pictures I have seen online, via Pinterest, Etsy, Facebook, Instagram etc of the hats others have made using this pattern they have all looked correct and none have shown evidence of this error, so it seems everyone had just figured it out for themselves, but not let me know, LOL!
I hope you're enjoying the pattern! I'd love to know if theres somewhere I could see the beanies you're making in this CAL? If you're on Instagram tag any images with #voyagesbeanie or @shara_made and I'll see them there :-)

cucicucicoo: ecological living said...

Hi Shara, That is so funny, because I also looked through the comments here and on Ravelry and didn't find anyone mention this mistake. And, like you said, all the images I saw of the hats looked perfect, so I thought that it was just me, being a beginner, that didn't understand properly! I finished my beanie yesterday and LOVE it! Now my husband wants one, too! I will take pictures today and post them on Ravelry and in the CAL group I linked to before (https://www.facebook.com/events/1413524718890070). Thanks so much! :) Lisa

Shara said...

That's lovely to read Lisa :-) I'm so glad you're enjoying the pattern :-) I'll look forward to seeing the pics on Ravelry!
