Sarah loves Christmas, so this hat is for her ♥. This pattern calls for three weights of yarn, all scraps or part skeins. The brim is knit in Yarn A, a worsted or aran weight yarn. The body of the hat is knit in Yarn B, a bulky weight yarn, and in Yarn C, scraps of fingering or sock weight yarn, with Yarns A and B alternating (striping) every 2 rounds. Check your gauge. The brim is very stretchy and will fit many a head size, youth to adult.

Knitting is in the round, using any combo of circulars and/or dpns. Have fun with colour and texture. Eat some chocolate. Happiest of holidays xoxoxoxo.

You can show your thanks by giving the pattern a “like”.!

Finished brim will fit a head 20-24 inches/50-60cm in circumference.
