  • The brim of the hat is knit using a smaller needle size (5.5mm or 5mm will work). If you do not have a smaller needles size you can knit the whole hat using 6mm circular needles.
  • The style of this hat is slouchy. If you would like a more fitted style; knit fewer rows
  • You can substitute the yarn for a similar bulky (5) yarn

    Got to Row 51 on Stonemill Beanie but the instructions end there, with 17 stitches on the needle. Please tell me what to do next so I can finish the hat! Thanka.

      Sorry about that! You will be finishing the hat off. Cut a long tail and weave the yarn through the remaining stitches on the needles. And cinch closed.
