This hat combines the fluidity of crochet and the fit of knitting.
The best part of this project is that there is no gauge. The size of the hat is totally determined by the size of the granny square.
The skills used in both the crochet and knitting sections are beginner level. This pattern is written in one size, but you can easily increase the size by making the granny square top larger or smaller. It’s all up to you.
Yardage needed depends of the gauge of yarn you are using.
Fingering weight: 300 yards
Sport weight: 250 yards

Hook and needle size depend totally on which yarn you choose. Here are my suggestions:
