This hat is inspired by the Gryffindor lion, knit three times around the circumference of the finished piece.

It’s designed to fit an adult head (~22 in. circumference), but can likely be adjusted to fit a child by reducing some of the stitches and rows in the chart.

This is identical to my Lannister pattern, for my Game of Thrones nerds out there :)
