This hat has a shaped crown that gives it a very smooth fit. A touch of fairisle adds pizzazz with only a little bit of extra work. Sized to fit all adults. Hat is stretchy. Most kids age 10 and up can wear the adult size. Stitches used are double board rib and double board stockinette. All stitch instructions including fairisle are included. Use any #5 yarn but Wool-Ease chunky is recommended. About an ounce each of two contrasting colors of yarn is also needed. Knit this on a Authentic Knitting Board or Knifty Knitter long loom with at least 50 pegs on each board. If you can match the gauge of 2.5 stitches/2.7 rows per inch in double board stockinette on your double knitting loom and have enough pegs, you can make the hat.
