Approximate Yardage: 57 (74, 94, 116, 140) yds / 52 (67, 86, 106, 127) m (bulky weight). Yardage is calculated with 15% security. Largest sizes will use entire skein. You may wish to buy 2 skeins of recommended yarn to ensure you have enough for your project.

All sizes but the smallest are written to be slouchy hats. The 16” / 40cm size is written to be a beanie. This is based on my experiences as a mother trying to keep hats on heads in car seats and strollers.

Needles: U.S, 10 and 10.5 / 6 and 7mm needles for working in the round (magic loop OR short circular + dpns OR just dpns) or size needed to get gauge, and U.S. 9 / 4.5mm DPNs or 2 sizes smaller than hat for pomball

Notions: darning needle, small amount of stuffing
