Everything you need to release your inner superhero or henchman, this seamless circular pattern is worked from the bottom up and includes a choice of four sizes to fit both young and old alike. The brim can be folded up for use as a regular hat or down when your identity must remain unknown. So cozy they can be used every day or as part of a costume. Three hat styles include goodies and baddies for role playing fun. Charts for the letter A and lightning flashes are also provided for extra customisation.

Gauge: 6 stitches per inch or 24 x 36 = 4 inches of stockinette.

Sizes: 1-2yr (3-6yr, youth/small adult, adult)
Sizes are tough. Heads come in all different shapes and sizes and yarn of the same weight can have varying amounts of stretch. I have based my sizing on the heads in my family and friends. I’m no longer shy about whipping out my knitting and asking a random friend to try something on!
If using my gauge the size ranges should fit the following head circumferences

1-2yr – 17/18 inches (3-6yr – 19/20 inches, youth/small adult – 21/22 inches, adult – 23/24 inches)
