Instant Gratification Hat
This hat is a quick, gratifying knit that makes a great last-minute gift or a luxurious indulgence for yourself. This hat uses one skein of yarn and feels soft and warm against the skin. Bulky yarn and a simple two-row pattern repeat using dropped stitches makes this quick knit a great beginner project, an ideal last-minute knit, or a quick stash buster for more experienced knitters.
The brim of the child sized hat measures 10 inches/ 20 centimetres stretched slightly and stretches to 19 inches/ 48 centimetres Brim of the teen/adult sized hat measures 16 inches/ centimetres stretched slightly and stretches to 25 inches/ 56 centimetres
