A simple, textured, close-fitting, unisex hat for the whole family. Knit in #3 Sport / DK or #4 Worsted weight yarn, with instructions for 10 different sizes, from Preemie to Adult Large.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

Because there are so many sizes included in this pattern, I recommend printing it out and using a highlighter or pen to mark all of the correct numbers for the size you are working before you begin.

Sizes (according to the wearer’s head circumference measurement):
Preemie: 12” circumference
0-6 Months: 13” circumference
6-12 Months: 14” circumference
12-18 Months: 16” circumference
Child Small: 17” circumference
Child Medium: 18” circumference
Child Large: 19 ¼” circumference
Adult Small: 21” circumference
Adult Medium: 22” circumference
Adult Large: 23” circumference

Hat is designed with negative ease, meaning the hat is a little smaller than the wearer’s head circumference, so it will stretch to comfortably stay on the head.
Actual Finished Size (circumference / hat length):
Preemie: 11” / 4 ½”
0-6 Months: 12” / 5”
6-12 Months: 13” / 5 ½”
12-18 Months: 14 ½” / 6 ¾”
Child Small: 15 ½” / 7 ¼”
Child Medium: 16 ½” / 7 ½”
Child Large: 17 ¾” / 7 ¾”
Adult Small: 19” / 8”
Adult Medium: 20” / 8 ¼”
Adult Large: 21 ¼” / 8 ½”

For Sport / DK weight version:
Needles:

US Size 4 circular knitting needles, 16” long and 32” long (for magic loop instead of double pointed needles) OR
US Size 4 double pointed needles, set of 5

NOTE: If working size Preemie or 0-6 Months, you must use double pointed needles, as a 16” circular needle will be too long. If you want to use a circular needle for those sizes, use a longer one with the magic loop method.

Yarn:
#3 Sport / DK weight yarn, 38 (46, 57, 77, 88, 97, 106, 115, 126, 137) yards.

You will also need:
4 Locking or Split-Ring Stitch Markers (if using double pointed needles, only 1 stitch marker)
Scissors
Ruler (for measuring gauge)
Yarn Needle or Blunt Tapestry Needle

Gauge: 27 sts = 4” in moss stitch, 32 rows = 4” in moss stitch

For Worsted Weight Version:
Needles:
US Size 8 circular knitting needles, 16” long
and 32” long (for magic loop instead of double pointed needles) OR
US Size 8 double pointed needles, set of 5

NOTE: If working size Preemie or 0-6 Months, you must use double pointed needles, as a 16” circular needle will be too long. If you want to use a circular needle for those sizes, use a longer one with the magic loop method.

Yarn:
#4 Worsted weight yarn, 28 (33, 40, 55, 62, 68, 76, 82, 88, 95) yards.
