The hubby was wanting a new hat, so I came up with this using Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn. It worked up so fast, I had this hat done in under an hour!! The yarn is so soft and chunky, my kids want me to make something for them with it. This hat pattern is written for a male adult and will fit a head up 23″. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me or comment below.
