A word on sizing for this pattern

The size of this hat is determined using knitting gauge:
• Toddler/Child: 7st/8rounds/inch/2.5cm
• S/M Teen/Adult: 6sts/7rounds/inch/2.5cm
• M/L Adult: 5st/in/6rounds/inch/2.5cm

This can be accomplished by using an approximate corresponding yarn weight of:
• Toddler/Child size: fingering weight
• S/M Teen/Adult size: dk/sport weight
• M/L Adult size: worsted weight

To fit head circumference (range):
• Toddler/Child: 16-18in/41-46cm
• S/M Teen/Adult: 19-21in/48-53cm
• M/L Adult: 22-23in/56-58cm

Any yarn/needle combination that gives the gauges listed above will work for its corresponding hat size. Check your gauge in a portion of the colorwork pattern after blocking. Please use a combination of yarn and needles that gives your desired gauge for accurate sizing.

Finished hat size after blocking
Circumference: 15.5in/40cm (18in/46cm, 21.5in/8.5cm)
Length: 6.6in/16.6cm (7.5in/19cm, 9in/23cm)

Fit: This hat is designed with just a little extra length in all sizes to be soft and a bit slouchy. It has a firmer ribbing at the start to help hold it on, but choose your size according not only to your recipient’s actual head size, but also how you’d like your hat to fit.
