Pattern Number Five from the Knit Pickin’ Hats Collection.

The Meriweather pattern (named for the Old Time fiddle tune of the same name) fits most adults as written. The DK weight yarn can easily be knit on a needle size larger for a circumference slightly wider than the pattern states without working any math. The length can also be easily adjusted with a few simple tweaks. Working at the called for rnd gauge, 4 extra rnds will add a 0.5” length. An extra rnd after rnds 3, 7, 11, and 15 would give you that extra bit. Or you could place them after rnds 18, 26, 30, 38, and 41.
