Both of these hats are based on my Hip to Be Square Hat. I've re-sized it for bulky weight yarn. The hats are knit from the top down starting with a square. These patterns both premiered in the Holiday Mystery Group in October. I knit a bunch of these as gifts last year for friends and family members. They were a real hit! :-)
The 59 Row Hat takes only 59 rows to complete. All you need is one circular knitting needle (no dpns!) in size 10.5 and about 80 yards of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky for one hat. This one is sized to fit adults.
The second one is my Dark Vapors earflap hat for kids. You’ll need the same size circular and yarn as for the adult version because of the earflaps. Hubby dubbed this one Dark Vapors (after Darth Vader in the Star Wars movies).
