Pattern Description:

Snowboarder's annual Christmas gift is a hat designed by me for when he hits the slopes. Requirements....it needs to have earflaps and look cool! Beyond cool! This year I didn't even check with him on the design. I just did it! Freestyle. And then I made one for my nephew. And then my sister. Freestyle works for everyone, don't you think?!

Gauge:

16 sts = 4" over st st for toddler and adult large size

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

Three sizes (toddler, adult small, and adult large) are provided. The adult small size is made by using a slightly lighter worsted yarn and reducing the needle size for a tighter gauge.
