About the Pattern
Hats come in as many shapes and sizes as those who wear them. This pattern is simple with lots of texture and easily adjustable repeats so you can adapt it to any yarn or needle size. My Way lets you knit a hat your way!
I prefer to use a worsted superwash yarn with hats, which has a tendency to grow after washing, so I start with a tight hat. If you are using a more rustic yarn for your hat, you may need to go up a size with the cast on or your needle size. If in doubt, measure your swatch before and after washing it to see how it changes.
This pattern is meant to have negative ease, but is very stretchy. My head circumference is 24” and I cast on for the M size. The small is best suited for children. If you wish to size down for a toddler or up for a looser slouchy hat, simply cast on in multiples of 6. Instructions are written for S (M, L).
