Pattern Description:

This hat is a quick and easy knit and unlike many hat patterns it doesn't require double point needles! It's stretch makes for a very comfortable fit and allows one size to fit lots of head sizes, also making it perfect for
gift giving.

Ideas and inspiration are everywhere. This hat was modeled after one being worn by a fellow passenger on the London Eye. I'm not sure if I
spent more time looking at the view or the hat!

Gauge:

22 sts/24 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch with size 7 needles

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The finished hat is very stretchy and will fit a wide range of sizes. The M/L will comfortably fit any adult head 19 inches and larger. The XS/S can be worn by a child as young as 8 years old, head size of about 16 inches. This pattern can easily be knit longer if you plan to tuck a lot of hair up in it, or just want to have some fun!

  • Optional - US 6 and/or 7 straight needles for working flat back section. Only if you don't like working flat pieces on circular needles.
