A very slight error, Feb 19/2010 - the 16-inch circular needle length metric equivalent should say 40 cm, not 30.


This lightweight, easy to knit hat is an accessory you need in lots of colours! Worked in fingering weight yarn, it is perfect for those skeins of sock yarn or laceweight that are just too beautiful to hide. A bit of slouch makes for a flattering fit.

Work this up in a single yarn, or mix it up with one for the ribbing and a complementary yarn for the rest of the hat - I used Koigu KPPPM for the ribbing and a doubled laceweight yarn for the rest.

SIZES
To Fit: Baby (Child’s S, Child’s M){Child’s L / Women’s S, Women’s M, Women’s L}
Brim Circumference: 16 (17, 18){19, 20, 21} inches / 40.5 43, 4648, 51, 53] cm

MATERIALS
Fingering weight yarn - approximately 180-215 yards / 165-195 m per 1.75 oz / 50g skein
Total Yardage: 150 (165, 195){210, 235, 260] yards / 136 (150, 178){190, 213, 236] m

If using 2 different yarns, you’ll need 15% of the total yardage for the ribbing, and then 85% of the total yardage for the body of the hat.
