This hat is a simple number which just has a really nice texture to it. It’s designed to be a close fit but the fabric is really stretchy so it will fit a wide range of sizes. The larger size is a wider circumference but due to the stretchy fabric this means you don’t necessarily need more length on the hat too, so the number of row repeats is fewer. Please bear this in mind when choosing the size. You can very easily adapt it by adding more or fewer row repeats, and you could make it slouchy by adding lots more.
