The Anahata hat is soft, cozy and lightweight. There are no large spaces between the stitches and the hat height is designed to reach the base of the earlobe.
The top of the hat has been fitted (decreased) to follow the curve of the head and then closed at the top. There is not a lot of extra fabric up top so it can be worn as a short slouch hat too. If you would like a longer slouch you can simply increase the number of repeat rounds until you reach a desired hat height.
Measurements for each size are provided in the pattern instructions and photos have been included for different techniques used to create the color changes.
This hat will make a great chemo cap too because it will cover to the base of the hairline. The yarn is soft and lightweight so it will be comfortable to wear.
