This stitch pattern does not lend its self to sizing so if you prefer a larger or looser hat sub a sport weight yarn- for example Quince and Co. Chickadee comes in the same palette as Finch. For other suggestions please DM me, I am always happy to talk yarn subs (and vicariously yarn shop) with you!

Errata- a corrected PDF was sent to all buyers 9/10/12- The 2nd rnd of the crown shaping, the last sts in the pattern repeat should be ‘p2’ not ‘p3’ (14 not 15 sts in the repeat),
