I needed a Hat!

Need is such a relative term isn’t it?  I should actually put that i need

I will be heading to NYC this weekend for work and figured I might be doing a lot of walking around downtown and with all the shade of the buildings, I am afraid I will be chilly.  Who are we kidding?  I am ALWAYS chilly.  J

Hats are tricky for me, as previously stated in this POST, I have a huge head and a TON of hair, so finding one that fits is always a challenge. 

I found this ONE on Pinterest.  Of course!  

This pattern was really easy and straight forward.  I made a few modifications but for the most part stayed true to the pattern.  I had never done a Puff Stitch before, and I actually recommend doing a YouTube search to find a video.  She does a great explanation, but if you’re anything like me, I need a visual!
Here is the comparison.

It fits perfectly and is so cozy!!  Give it a try!


  1. This hat is really lovely. I am crazy for knitted a crochet berets, hats, beanies, earwarmers...
    You are really talented!

  2. I like the wider band of yours better. Have fun ( even though it's for work) in NYC!
