Pattern Description:

Occam's Beanie: "The simplest hat is often the best"

This hat is supremely simple, yet wonderfully satisfying and stylish. Use any nice worsted weight yarn with a touch of drape- the Madelinetosh Vintage is a treat and silk/wool blends work fabulously as well. A great unisex hat that will fit most ages- work at a slightly smaller gauge for small children, or slightly larger for huge heads.
