This hat can be knit within 3 hours - honest! Only one skein of Malabrigo Chunky or two of the Cortina yarn are needed. Both are sooooo soft due to the Merino wool. The row gauge is fairly important on this hat due to the 28 round pattern.

I wanted a hat that would be flattering to wear and not make me have “hat head” after wearing said hat - here it is! My daughter has already claimed my first hat with this leaf pattern which is always a good sign. Hope you like this pattern - would love to see all finished projects. xo
