  • Add this pattern to your Ravelry queue or favorites
  • Difficulty: Intermediate Beginner
  • Size: M/L
  • Note: I designed this hat with a very loose fitting band which is most comfortable for me, so if you prefer yours more snug or want to fit it to a smaller head my suggestion is to use a 5 mm or smaller hook in place of the 5.5 mm.
