We had purchased a flat cap for my husband a few winters back. I thought it would be nice to make him one out of tartan. So the search began for a pattern. Flipping through the pages of the pattern books at the fabric stores did not help at all. No patterns were even close to what I was looking for. Many searches online only turned up others like myself who were also looking for a pattern.
Finally, finally I was able to find a pattern. Being rather particular, several samples later and a few adjustments I now have a workable pattern. Since I put a lot of time into this idea I thought I would share a few photos of the process.
