There is a big gap between the two sizes in these crocheted hats; the small measures 14″ in circumference, and the large measures 18″. But the good thing is that they will stretch to fit almost any size. The hat is not very cozy due to the open spaces, but it will be a perfect hat for the fall or spring to add a little warmth, but not too much.
It does not take much yarn to make this hat, and thus it is a great pattern to use up those odds and ends. You can even make it with several different colors; a new color for each round.
