Worsted (9 wpi) ?
14 stitches and 14 rows = 4 inches
in single crochet
6.5 mm (K)
394 yards (360 m)

This hat is made to be roomy to prevent tousled hair. After all, what good is a great hat if it leaves your hair a mess? The worsted weight yarn is used doubled to create a thick cushy fabric and it only uses a small portion of the second skein, so you will have enough leftover for a scarf or a pair of matching gloves.

This pattern is for the hat only. It is meant to be a blank slate for your creativity. Add a large crocheted mum , a pretty silk rose, or a garden of smaller crocheted or knitted flowers.
