This is a quick and easy project for almost any yarn giving a Stocking stitch gauge of between 4 - 8 sts per inch. It's ideal for using up small amounts of precious yarns. A soft wool yarn will be the most warm, comfortable and elastic. The hat fits a wide range of head sizes and can be customized in many ways or knit as a headband by omitting the crown.
This versatile pattern is suitable to various yarn weights and thus the gauge is variable--anywhere between 4 and 8 stitches per inch
