YARN AND SIZES Models were knitted in Lions Brand Jiffy in Camel. Full cap requires approximately 3 oz. while the messy bun hat requires a little less, approximately 2 oz.
SUPPLIES NEEDED Tapestry Needle Needles - Either 16" circular needles or double-pointed needles in sizes 11 and 10 1/2. 1 Stitch Marker
SIZES Both patterns fit an adult's 21" head circumference. If you choose a chunkier yarn, you may want to decrease the number of stitches (to 48) in order to maintain that circumference. Thinner yarns would require more stitches (add in increments of 4; 56 or 60 stitches depending on how thin a yarn is used).
