This is the one hat pattern people ask us for the most! They write us and tell us how much they love it! They love the way it fits, and the ease in knitting it. Uses worsted weight yarns, and a 16 circular needle , US # 9. The best part is, there are NO double pointed needles required for this pattern! So easy to knit, and how cute with the top of hat loop! Children sizes in directions too. Knit away, and make a stack of these for quick gifts! It is very warm and cozy, and fits most head sizes.
