About a Hat is more of a recipe than a pattern. The hat is knit with a soft, speckled and inelastic cotton acrylic blend yarn. Please note that if using the suggested yarn, the size is limited to a head size of 21.5” (54.5cm)–22” (56cm). If substituting yarn, please choose an inelastic one that gives you the same gauge. To achieve different sizes, please experiment with different yarns and needles. If you want the same look, keep a similar proportion of needle sizes.

About a Hat is knit in the round using leftover cotton-acrylic blend yarn from any favorite project for the colorful crown. Please make sure to use the same weight as your main yarn. Make sure to check your gauge.

There are three ways to finish About a Hat, plain, i-cord and pompom finish. Including written instructions and photos on how to make a pompom.
