When visiting Hogsmeade one needs a warm wooly hat. This hat was designed in four sizes to be a quick, warm, easily knit hat for donation to Wool-Aid or your favorite charity. Options are given for knitting in super bulky, doubled aran weight or tripled worsted weight yarn. The goal of this hat is it will fit someone, gauge is not terribly important except the fact that the decreases add about 2 1/2” to hat height at correct row gauge. If your yarn is not bulky enough you may need to add additional height before starting decreases. Otherwise, at correct row gauge the hat is long enough for full ear coverage. There are options for slight variations on the brim of the hat.

ERATTA: In the more options ssection it mentions a 52 stitch hat, it should read 54 stitch.
