Knit in under 2 hours.
This hat was designed as a loose, less hair flattening fit for a 22” circumference adult woman’s head! In bitter cold temperatures pull it down over forehead and ears. When it’s that cold, who cares about “hat hair”!
Knit with circular needles in the round and switch to double pointed needles (dpns) when stitch count has decreased for shaping. You may choose to cast on with dpns from start to finish.
There is a slouchy version, and a less so version included in the pattern.

A close fit beanie hat is coming soon!
