What a cute hat. I am guessing this is also a stock photo? I wish the yarn companies would start providing more pictures to go along with their patterns or include the link to the site where the designer that made the pattern could help us further.

What does this project look like? There is no included photo.

Hi lorenzanaj, The photo should be showing up now - sorry about that! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I like the look of this hat, but I dont think Ill use this particular pattern to recreate it. I dont understand why its necessary to work this up flat instead of in rounds. I think having to stitch it up will put some people off the project. I do understand that Red Heart wants to promote a variety of skills and stitches, but while Ill keep the design in mind, this project is not for me.

Love this hat and will start on it today. I like the way it covers your ears and the back of the neck. I have a feeling this will be made many times. Had no trouble printing it out using neanerg 4863072's suggestion below.

Very pretty! I would wear it all winter long!

I usually crochet very close to gauge, but I can't seem to make this large enough, even with a larger hook. It looks beautiful, but I am going to have to see if I can re-design it by increasing the foundation chain amount. Has anyone else had problems?

I am having trouble with the pattern, ie starting the top edge. Could someone please provide some support. Thank you. Jayne Martin

I just right-clicked (mouse, on a MacBook laptop) and hit 'print' - the resulting PDF omits everything but the picture and pattern, no sidebar, no comments. Try right clicking to see if you have a print option - then choose 'save as pdf' when the print box pops up. Check to be sure it copied to the pdf properly - sometimes it doesn't.

You could try taking a screen shot of the pattern page and then printing it out in your email. Or what neanerg suggests.

How I printed the Pattern: Highlight the two pages of the pattern instructions, right click select print then select print on the top left side of the screen.

For those having difficulty printing, I will share what I was able to do:: I clicked the 3 line bar at the top right of the window, chose print and the print screen came up. It shows and excludes all the extra's stuff on the side panels of this page, followed prompts and printed horizontal as I was not sure if that was my last setting or needed to get the whole pattern on the paper (it looks like the latter was true)

This is going to save me a lot of time! I usually have to cut paste.

it would be helpful if we could see what the replies were to these questions. I feel like I am trying to reinvent the wheel, as my question is the same as the top two -- how can I print off the instructions to take along? also, how can I get permission to use a pattern that I would like to take to sell at a craft fair? thanks.

I would like the snowstorm hat pattern but do not understand if everything is free why there isn't a printable pattern. It seems so difficult when I have opened these e-mails and cannot print off patterns. ??

I would like to print this pattern. How do I get a PRANTABLE page?????

This looks like a great hat to do up so will get busy and do up a few as I have wool to use and many hats to crochet for charity. Thank You..:)
