Notes

Started out with 6 mm Britney birch dpn’s but 80 sts seem to want to fall off the needles so changing to circulars/magic loop.
Knit the pattern with 5,5 mm KnitPro cubics and brim with 4,5 mm KnitPro cubics. Decreased 4 sts on the brim.

Summa summarum: The hat is big, fortunately not too big for my husband. Ih I had knit it for myself, I would’ve had to use 5 mm needles and still less stitches. So lessons for next time: use thinner yarn.

The pattern is easy and the texture is really nice. The yarn is soft and warm.
