Fit Options

  • For best fit choose the size that is smaller than your actual head measurement.

  • This hat has a large colorwork chart. To make finer adjustments to the hat sizing, change the needle size up or down or try using a slightly heavier yarn for a bigger hat.

  • To increase the length of the hat, you may add additional rows from the chart. This will increase the yardage needed.

  • Traditional hat and bun / ponytail hat instructions included.
