Cinnamon Swirl Skully Hat
The Cinnamon Swirl Skully can be made in two different lengths. It can be a regular skully hat or can be made extra long so it has some slouch! Both a men’s and a women’s size are included. This pattern works best with one solid color or a multicolor yarn. Due to the way it’s constructed in a continuous spiral, it does not work well with changing colors to create stripes. If you want it to stripe, I recommend using a multicolor yarn such as Red Heart Unforgettable. Add a pom pom to give it a little extra personality or go without one and it’s a very basic, every day hat that you’ll love to wear!
Finished Size: (not including pom pom)
Women’s: Around edge = 20 inches. From edge to center of top = 8 inches (regular skully) or 10 inches (extra long skully).
