Charts are included for both a short fitted hat and a longer slouchy hat. All versions can be knitted flat or in the round.

Yarn: 50g/4oz (100g/8oz) of fingering/sport yarn for the short (long) hat. Recommended are yarns with 120-180 m/50g (130-200 yd/ 4oz) for long version and 150-200 m/50g (160-220 yd/4oz) for short version.

Needles: 1.5 - 4.0 mm, US 00 - 3
