Betty is a wonderfully engaging hat pattern, working up incredibly quickly in bulky weight 8-ply yarn. I now understand why bulky weight hats are so incredibly popular and addictive! I managed to knit two of them in a couple of days. They made ideal last-minute gifts for some very knit-worthy people. ♥

Worked in the round, Betty contains written directions and charts. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method or DPNs.
