I was motivated to create this for my husband. He is a truck driver on the flat bed division. He must tarp and remove the tarps outside. Since most of his deliveries are within a 300 mile radius of Pennsylvania...he is working in the elements. Seeing as the hat is longer in the back, it hat eliminates the need for a scarf (which would get in the way of and possibly getting caught in the securing of chains and binders...not a pretty sight). It protects his ears from frostbite and keeps his head warm. A "must have" for anyone going out in the cold! This hat pattern is adult size. You are purchasing the pattern...NOT the finished product. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic stitches are used in this pattern: slip stitch, chain, single crochet, double crochet, decrease. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished hat measures approximately: 19 1/2" around at forehead, 7" from top of crown to edge at forehead, and 11" from top of crown to bottom edge at back of neck.
