    I have just printed the lovely reversible hat pattern and cut it out. However, I can’t find out if the 1/2″ seam allowance is included in the pattern or should I add it on before I start cutting the fabric?
    Thanks very much

    Hi @campergirl the seam allowances are always added into the Oliver and s patterns which is extremely convenient. Just as a general rule of thumb, if the pattern is for a woven fabric, then the seam allowance is 1/2″ and if it is a knit pattern then 1/4″ is used. It usually states this at the beginning of the instructions.

    So 1/2″ for the bucket hat and it is included. Enjoy!
