one size
This pattern is available for free.

After hearing the Boys Town football team head coach speak at a work function, I was inspired to knit a hat for each member of their high school varsity squad. Needing a simple pattern that would work well for a variety of teenage boys, and without the benefit of sizes on hand, I came up with a super stretchy hat that should fit just about anyone’s head.

This is a one-size beanie – it fits my head about as well as it fits my husband’s. Made this way on purpose, you can give it to a wide range of people and ensure it will fit
