Hipstamatic is a super fast and easy hat to knit. I designed it with instant gratification in mind. After knitting a ton of lace and fingering weight items, sometimes you just need to pick up some bulky weight and get something finished up quick! :o) This hat knits up in a single afternoon, and takes less than one skein of Madelinetosh Home.

The ribbing allows for a lot of stretch, and so, while the hat is only 12” in circumference, it will stretch and fit comfortably up to a 23” head circumference. The model has a 20” circumference head.

The beanie style uses roughly 65yds, while the slouchy version uses roughly 90yds. That means that two skeins of Home will make two beanie style hats and one slouchy style hat. Pictures featured show the Fluoro Rose colorway in slouchy, Fog colorway in beanie, and the colorblock version in beanie style.

Gauge is not as important for this project, as the ribbing provides a lot of stretch. However, if your gauge differs drastically from mine, you may have different yardage usage. To get the three beanies, every last yard was used (minus the woven in end scraps).
