The Falling In Love Beanie is a very comfy and stretchy hat and it’s fun to make! The finished hat circumference is 16 inches but it needs to stretch to fit comfortably.  This hat should fit children, teenagers, and adults with head circumferences between 18-22 inches. For the messy bun style hat, stop after R24 of the hat pattern.


This hat is worked from the bottom up. The brim of the hat is worked in rows and the hat is worked in the round.


A yarn guide ring is optional to use to be able to change colors quickly without tangling the yarn.
