Summer Hat

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.
