Finished Size
16 (18, 20)“ circumference
10 ¼” tall.

Shown the smallest size knit with a yarn with very little elasticity. If using a yarn with very little ‘bounce’ such as cashmere, alpaca, or cotton choosing a smaller size with negative ease will ensure a secure fit. For 100% wool or yarns with a lot of bounce, the middle size should fit an average adult head.
