Eddystone is a stranded colourwork hat knit in two colours. It has no long floats and so is suitable for knitters who haven’t done a lot of stranded colourwork before.
Different sizes are achieved by changing the needle size/gauge and working from the charts for each size. There are lots of options for using the charts and your gauge to achieve different sizes. You can also knit more or less ribbing to change the height of the hat.
