When I cast on this hat, my intention was to design my ideal, go-to hat pattern. A perfect jumping off point for beginner briochers to try on their newly acquired skills - this hat is great for any gender or age, and the color possibilities are infinite! We all need a dependable hat pattern right?? This is the pattern I know I can depend on for stash busting, wardrobe enhancing, or a quick gift for someone I love!

Child (Youth/Adult Small, Adult Large)

Finished Measurements:
Circumference - 12.5, (15, 17.5)”/32 (38, 44.5) cm
Height - 7.25 (9.25, 9.25)”/18.5 (23.5, 23.5) cm
To Fit: 16-19 (20-22, 23-24)”/40.5-48 (51-56, 58-61) cm
All 3 samples are the middle size - Youth/Adult Small. Thanks to the incredibly stretchy fabric that brioche creates, all 3 of these sizes will fit a wide range of heads! For instance, my 4 yr old, myself, and my husband (who has a rather large noggin) have all worn the middle size! Although, I would ideally knit the smallest size for my kids (ages 2 and 4), the middle size for myself, and the large for my husband.
