This hat is a quick, gratifying knit that makes a great last-minute gift or a luxurious indulgence for yourself. This hat uses one skein of yarn and feels soft and warm against the skin. Bulky yarn and a simple two-row pattern repeat using dropped stitches makes this quick knit a great beginner project, an ideal last-minute knit, or a quick stash buster for more experienced knitters.

The brim of the child sized hat measures 10 inches/ 20 centimetres stretched slightly and stretches to 19 inches/ 48 centimetres
Brim of the teen/adult sized hat measures 16 inches/ centimetres stretched slightly and stretches to 25 inches/ 56 centimetres

The samples are made using Lion Brand Martha Stewart Crafts Alpaca Blend 40%wool, 40%acrylic, and 20% alpaca; 115 yards/105 meters per skein; Coral Pink; 1.5 skeins – this yarn has since been discontinued but can be substituted with another bulky wool or wool blend such as Lion Brand Homespun or King Cole Merino Blend Chunky
