  • 70 (80, 100, 115, 140, 160, 200) Yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used WeCrochet Swish

  • Soft Tape Measure (gauge is essential)
  • Tapestry Needle

Yarn Alternatives:
Lion Brand Wool Ease, Emma’s Yarn Washable Worsted; Non-Wool: WeCrochet Brava, Red Heart Soft

If you happen to be a tight crocheter, you may want to work the final round of single crochet in an I9/5.5mm crochet hook to help keep a looser round so there is no restriction in the final beanie.

Time Spent:
I was able to work up the teen/adult small size in 2 hours.
