Free! Cadet Cap Pattern

I’m guest posting over at the Britex Fabric blog with a pattern and instructions for a child’s cadet style cap! Use this link to head over and check it out. While you’re there, check out the amazing fabrics they carry. The hat below is made from a beautiful herringbone olive and espresso wool from Britex. They’ll be having a 30% off sale in-store for Black Friday and 30% off online for Cyber Monday.

The instructions are at the Britex blog now here on Craft Buds and you can download the free cadet cap pattern here from Craftsy. You’ll have to create a free Craftsy account to access the pattern. The free version comes in child size 5 only, but I plan on releasing a paid version with multiple sizes and printable instruction sheets soon. The finished base of the free hat measures 20 7/8″ and fits a head circumference (measured from the middle of the forehead to the widest part of the back of the skull) of 20 1/4″, the average size of a 5 year old.

    What is your policy about selling products made from your patterns? I’m just starting my business and want to make sure that I start on the right foot. I will be checking out your business tutorials as well.

    Thanks, Jerry

      If you are selling a limited quantity (5 or fewer), go on right ahead. If you are interested in selling at a higher rate than that, just send us a message and we’ll discuss the details. Thanks!

        Dear Lindsey, I’m a 70 yr old retired Air Force grandma that makes hats and thinking of chemo patients.
        How can I get the “cadet cap” pattern for adults?

          Hi Ginny, the pattern is at a standstill right now! I still need to draft the lining pieces for all sizes so a completed pattern (other than the free size 5 one) isn’t available yet. I’ll notify you when it is, but I’m not sure yet when that’ll be!

      I’m so happy to hear it turned out! You’re the first person I’ve heard from that’s actually made it :). I’d love to see a photo if it’s not too much trouble. It could be e-mailed to marij4 (at) gmail (dot) com.

    Hi there I downloaded the pattern but the link to the instructions does not seem to work. Are there other instructions available?

    Mary – Have you released the paid version with additional sizes? This cap is wonderful, but I do not trust myself to figure out how to enlarge it.
