Vanilla Hat is a simple stockinette hat with a folded hem. The brim is knit with a smaller needle size so it gives the hat a snug, comfortable fit that stays put without squeezing around the bottom. There are 3 sizes to choose from and you can make it fitted or slouchy.

1 skein GDF Merino Storm
16 inch circular or DPN needles in US 5 and US 6
1 set of DPN in US 6 for the crown
4 stitch markers
Scrap yarn for cast on

Gauge: 22 sts = 4 inches on US 5

Sizes: S (M , L)

Finished measurements: approximately 18 (19.5, 21) inches unstretched.

Plan for about 3.5 to 4 inches of negative ease for a comfortable and snug fit. For a slouchy fit, go up one size.
