Whimsical and warm, this hat is fun to knit and wear, Despite its curvy nature, the pattern stitch is logical and straightforward. A slightly less “elfish” look can be achieved by ending a few rows early and pulling the top closed by running the yarn end through the live stitches. You will need 16” circular needles in size 2 and 4 and a set of double point needles in size 4. The hat is sized to fit an average sized adult head.
