This hat features simple, two-color ribbing and bobbles swirling around, which will charm both kids and grown-ups alike! For knitters, this pattern falls into the "easier than it looks" and "great use for scraps" categories! Materials: 2 colors of worsted weight wool, about 40 yards in color A and 140 yards in color B. In the example, I used Cascade 220 Superwash (yellow - color A) and Cascade 220 (grey - color B). 16" circular needles, sizes US 6 & 7 (4 & 4.5 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge (I am a loose knitter so in the example, I used sizes US 5 & 6) and additional needles in the larger size for small-diameter knitting (DPNs, a second circular or a long Magic Loop needle). Gauge: 5.5 stitches/inch in stockinette stitch. Measurements: Child-sized: 7.75" from brim to tip of top bobble when measured flat. Includes guidelines below for sizing up or down. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cast on knit purl bind off knit in the round GAUGE 5.5 sts/inch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS child, with guidelines for sizing up or down SUGGESTED YARN 175 yards of Worsted weight
