Finished Circumference: 14 (16)”/35.5 (40.5)cm unstretched

Note: If you are an adult with a small head and would like a snug fit, you can knit the child circumference to a longer length.

Super bulky weight yarn, circular or double pointed needles, smooth worsted weight scrap yarn, darning needle, Clover Pom Pom Maker, size Extra Large (optional)

Suggested Yarn:
Wool Ease Thick & Quick (Super Bulky, 80% Acrylic/20% Wool, 106yds (97m)/ball)

You can substitute anything from a chunky to super bulky weight yarn, or any combination of yarn weights you can get gauge with. Four strands of fingering held together work great!

Hat Only: 80-100 (95-120) yds/73-91 (87-110)m
Hat with PomPom: 150-170 (175-220) yds/137-155 (160-201)m

Since this is a ribbed hat, exact gauge isn’t that crucial. If you only have a size 10, 11, or 13 needle, go ahead and use what you have!
