This hat is worked in the round, using an aran weight yarn with excellent stitch definition. The Toft wool is very soft but also sturdy and springy.
The garter stitch body of the hat is quite thick, so the hat circumference (measured on the outside), belies a snugger fit on the inside. Garter stitch in the round is worked by alternately knitting and purling rounds.
I had just 4g of yarn remaining from my 100g ball, so if your tension varies a little from mine, you may need more yarn.
