Need a hat to have an adventure in? Look no further. The Elven Hero hat is your hat. The Elven Hero hat is perfect for any enemy smiting, princess saving adventure you might have. To achieve marauding outlaw look, use brown yarn. If you’d rather create a Santa look, use white yarn for the brim and red yarn for the main body of the hat. A white pom pom could also be added.

The hat is constructed by provisionally casting on the brim edge. The brim is grafted together, then folded over to make it double thick and well fitted. Stitches are picked up along the edge of the brim to complete the rest of the hat body.

Circumference: 18in/ 45.5cm (20in/51cm, 22in/ 56cm)
Stretches easily to fit up to a 20in/51cm (22in/ 56cm, 24in/ 61cm) head
Length from brim to crown: 16.5in/ 42cm (17in/ 43cm, 17.5in/ 44.5cm)

The hat is meant to be fitted. Choose the size that is 1-2in/ 2.5-5cm smaller than your head.
