I've had the pattern for this beautiful Swirls Cap by Sophia Kessinger in my Ravelry queue for weeks now. You'll need to log in to Ravelry to download it (follow the link above), and it comes with step by step photos that illustrate how to make the textured swirl and sturdy brim. I think it'd make a great gift for any lady on your list, but who am I kidding? I want to make one for myself!

Check out the rest of Sophia's gorgeous needlework on her flickr page.

benthelady writes: I would love to have this pattern too and it does say it is free and when I go to Ravelry it says, It is $5.00 and I wanted it so that I can make it for a friend of mine. When I make something that was written and made by the person where I got it I tell the person that I got it from the person that I got the pattern from. So please either take off the free on this page or give some a code name so that we could get it. I am on a fix income and I don't get much to buy everything I see that I want to make. Thank you.

HumorMe writes: Yikes, I was all set to cough up the $5 and order the hat, but after reading these comments I will have to rethink. I'm going to try to send a message to the designer on Ravelry to ask if she is still selling the pattern.

It's a wonderful cap, hope we can get the pattern!!

FrenchTeas writes: The author had issues with people not giving her credit or selling her pattern. Something like that, she took it off but put it back on to sell it when people asked her to.

kittyohkitty writes: I have yet to be able to download the patter after purchasing it. Sure it's only $5, but its MY $5 and I am unimpressed with the response from the designer. At the very least she should have a message on the order page alerting prospective buyers as to HOW they can acquire the pattern once purchased.

funkycrafter writes: For some reason it's no longer free. Have you made it? I have trouble with hats. they don't shape right. Do you have any tips?

LindaPermann writes: Beverly,
You really need to try asking the person who posted the pattern on ravelry-- it's not my pattern, I just posted alerting to the free and cool nature of it. Hope she can assist you!

Beverly5876 writes: I've tried to download this pattern but for some reason it just isn't working. Is there some way that you can send it to me in another format; rather than through MS Works Word. I have Words Word and MS WORD but, it's just not opening up. It says there's an error.

I'd love to make this. I was hoping to make it up tonight to wear it to my crochet guild tomorrow. poo!
