The sample in the photos fits my son’s 23-inch (58cm) head circumference in the adult-large size. The hat has a lot of stretch and should be worn with 1-3 inches (2.5-7.5cm) of negative ease. For my 22-inch (59cm) circumference head I would make the adult medium size.

Needles: US size 2 (3mm) sixteen-inch (40cm) circular and double-pointed needles or size to obtain gauge
Optional Note: For a slouchier fit go up one needle size for the body of the hat.
