This pattern shows you how to knit three different hats with super bulky Peruvian wool yarn — a basic beanie, a longer slouch hat, and a ribbed brim hat. Each hat is simple and easy to make with large needles. Obviously, knitting speeds vary, but you should be able to knit one of these hats in about an hour.

You will need a size 17 20-inch circular needle (I recommend Addi Turbos) and a set of size 15 DPNs (or 17s if you can find ‘em!). If you have trouble finding those needles, you can also substitute a set of size 17 straight needles. You will just have a seam to sew up.
