Remember the bonnets our grandmother’s use to wear? Or how about Paddington Bears hat? This hat was inspired by these childhood memories. The super bulky yarn made this a very fast project and if you’re a very fast knitter, this is a day project. The brim on this hat can be rolled up for a very stylish look, or brought all the way down to provide warmth on those cold winter days.

This pattern is a “floppy” style hat and can be altered to fit your personality by decreasing the brim rows and the top so that it is not as “deep”.
