This wimple can be made with a single skein of Blue Heron Silk/Merino yarn, making it snuggly and pretty at the same time.

Gauge is suggested but not critical. The number of pattern repeats can be adjusted to make the circumference larger or smaller. Going up or down in needle size will also change the circumference.
