Thanks to my niece, Marsha, who kindly modelled the hat for
the pictures. I have made a hat for Marsha in black. I used the
white hat for the picture as it shows up better.

Will fit most women and teens. This hat covers your ears so should be great for keeping you warm in the cold weather.



Thanks to Sarah for this size tip: "I also made one for my 1 year old by using a size E hook and sport weight yarn. It looks SOOOOO cute on her." And thanks again to Sarah for sharing these pictures (to the left) of her daughter, Lydia, wearing her new hat. Isn't she adorable!! Thanks, Lydia, for modelling the hat!













Thanks to Kristina for this photo of her beautiful little 7 month old baby wearing the brim hat that she made for her. Kristina says "It's slightly big and will fit her for some time (which is a great thing). I didn't modify the pattern but used Bernat Baby Jaquards yarn and a size F hook." She is adorable, Kristina! Thanks for sharing the photo and the tips on the size.
