Comments about ADVENTURE DU JOUR DESIGNS Backstage Boss PDF:
I bought the recommended 3 ballls for $60 for a pretty simple hat. It turned out nicely, and the brim construction in particular is well conceived, but if you follow the pattern as written, you will end up with more than half a ball of the CC and a whole ball minus abut 2 yards of the MC. Pretty expensive yarn to be this fast and loose with. I modified it so that I would have to break open the second ball of MC. I also color coded the striped part of the pattern and posted a pic of my modification to help others (just a partial pic of the striping part). I got a note on ravely from the designers asking me to take down my picture, lest others on ravelry "steal" the pattern. Everything about this goes against the generous helping spirit of the community of knitters on ravelry that I love. I don't think I'll buy from this designer again.
