From the magazine: “Knits, purls and easy decreases make this chunky beanie a dream pattern for a beginner to tackle. It’s a great portable project to keep you busy on holidays or commutes. And it’s sure to be a big hit with whoever you decide to knit it for!
”This hat is designed to be very stretchy so should fit most adult male heads, despite looking small while relaxed. For a slouchier fitting hat, work the unshaped part of the hat until it measures 25cm from cast-on edge before starting the shaping.“

Actual hat circumference 42cm (16.25 in).
Model used 1 ball each of Marsh (012) and Maritime (010). Yarn B is only used for four rows total.
