A larger hat with many options, written in a chatty but thorough voice. Great for any combination of worsted weight yarnsa perfect scrappy stash-buster. A tidy purl ridge at the crest of the head provides textural interest. Options include i-cord edging or ribbing, earflaps or none, and two different top of hat charts for shorter or taller bigheads. There are endless combinations available here!
Two sizes are available, achieved by following either of two top-of-hat charts: one for the large head that is both wide and tall, and one for the large head that has a shorter rise. Finished sample was 24" circumference unstretched. Hat #1 has a hem-to-center-top height of 9", while Hat #2 (no i-cord, shorter rise) is 8.25" from hem to center top. Both hats have a 6" rise from hem to purl ridge at crown.
Lots of pictures in this 5 page .pdf! Best for screen viewing, but printing could also work.

I have a Masters in Crafts Education! I love to teach people new skills. I hail from Western NC, but I moved to Brooklyn in late 2011 and it thrills me daily. I’m a crafts teacher, glass artist, fledgling designer, and I often babysit (so that I might better have a chance at crafting a wee savings account for myself).
While living in Williamsburg, VA I worked part time at my LYS and part time as the arts teacher at a local Montessori school. I moonlight as a crafts teacher during the summer at an overnight camp in Brevard, NC. For six months, I lived and created a great body of craft work at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC (while working as a student host for 6 months). I'm also one of the organizers of the Brooklyn Contra dance, and have been active in social dance scenes for more than a decade now.
I like colorwork, cables, cardigans, EZ, silk/wool blends, and autumn colors. And purple-blues. And lists.
