This is a quick and easy knit that requires you to be able to cast on, knit and purl, knit in the round, and to decrease stitches. My pattern has row by row instructions with pictures to illustrate it. YouTube is an excellent resource if there are any stitches you don't know and I also offer help by email.

I've used chunky (bulky) weight yarn and US10.5 (6.5mm) needles for the hats pictured. They are "child" size and fit approx. 20-22" heads, which in our playground covers the age range 2 -12 years.

There is basic guidance on altering the number of stitches to fit slightly smaller or larger heads in the pattern. I offer email support so I can also advise you personally should you wish to make greater changes in sizing.

You will be able to download the pattern from etsy once you have paid. If you have any problems doing this please convo me as I can easily email it if you prefer!

This pattern is very very similar to my ninja turtle hat so please don't buy both! If you have one pattern you will be able to make both designs with few changes.
