PATTERN NOTES
Like other patterns from our More Than A Basic series, our Snowflakes pattern is designed to offer you plenty of options and comes with instructions for different gauges.

We included instructions for four sizes and seven yarn-weight specific versions for each size as well as various brim and bind-off options, so you can use whatever yarn weight you’re most comfortable with and make exactly the hat you’d love to wear. In addition, the pattern comes with lots of helpful information, e.g. on choosing the right size and on gauge.
