Chunky/ bulky yarn that knits at a gauge of 14 sts and 19-20 rows per 10 cm / 4 in. Alternatively you can use 2 strands of DK yarn knitted together (the hat in the photo was made with 2 strands of Sirdar Country Style DK, 45% acrylic, 40% nylon, 15% wool, colour 604, damson).
For the best results use a smooth wool or wool and acrylic blend with good stitch definition.

110 (132) 132 {164} yards.

14 sts and 19-20 rows per 10 cm/ 4’’ in stockinette st, using 6.5 mm (US #10.5) needle.

You will also need:
one set of 6.5 (US #10.5) mm DPNs (or circular needle of the same size for magic loop),
6.5 mm (US #10.5) circular needle, 60 cm long,
one set of 5.5 mm (US #9) DPNs for brim,
st marker,
crochet hook size as needles (US #K) or smaller, and a pen or another round object, about 10 mm in diameter (for casting on).

You might need to use different size needles to obtain
the required gauge. Take time to make a gauge swatch, as incorrect gauge could result in the hat being too small or too large. Adjust needle size, if necessary.
