I made this for Esther on Tuesday. Even working without a pattern, it came together in about an hour. I used less than half a skein of Berella 4 yarn.
I’ll edit with a gauge as soon as I find the blasted hat so I can measure it. It’s very stretchy & forgiving, though. It was made for Esther but even fit Linda’s big head.
