This hat is worked in the round from the bottom up, beginning with a ribbed brim. It’s a dense knit for added warmth. It is designed for an average adult head with a slouchy fit. If a less slouchy fit is desired, knit less in the plain stockinette portion after the chart and before the beginning of the crown decrease. If more slouch is desired, knit more in that section. If more slouch is added, more MC will be needed.
Almost every bit of yarn for the MC was used. If gauge is off, that will affect yarn amounts and fit.
