A hat design by Maya Levitt

This hat was inspired by my father’s request for a beanie for his birthday. He wanted something
that had a bit of flair while still not being too outrageous, and could be worn in mild to cool
weather. It is a simple design with a broad brim and an interesting textured pattern created
basic stitches. This means it is a simple hat for the beginner knitter.

Size wise, this design can be worn by both children and adults, despite only three sizes being
offered. When choosing a size, go by head circumference. If the head circumference is in the
lower range for the size, it means there will be more slouch in the hat. The higher the head
circumference in the size, the less slouch, though this hat is designed to have a slight slouch
whatever the size.
