Beanie measurements were taken laid flat. Final length is

The beanie is made to fit snug. To make a looser/larger fit, go up a needle size.

    Love this pattern…can’t wait to try it! I like that it doesn’t call for a switch to DPN’ s at the top of the beanie as I am a fairly new beginner. Thank you for sharing! 🎄

      Thank you! You’re welcome! I avoid dpns as much as possible. 😅 I love a quick cinch to close a beanie, I’ve done that with all of my patterns. ❤️
