After many styles of hat and different types of crown decreases, I finally found one my husband likes!
This hat is knit with a 4” turned up cuff. The large turned up cuff allows many different sized and shaped heads to fit into this hat. Fit is loose to accommodate long hair or those who do not like tight hats.
It is a quick and easy knit that is great for the first-time hat knitter or seasoned pro who needs to keep a family in hats!
