For this simple hat pattern, which is great for men and women, I used WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK:
:: One 100g hank of WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK Click here to see the shades.
:: my hat used approx. 50g/113 metres
:: 3.25mm circular needle (40cm length).
:: 4mm circular needle (40cm length).
:: set of 4 double pointed 4mm needles.
Skill level: ♦ ♦ ♦ ◊ ◊ (if this is your first item knitted in the round) / ♦ ♦ ◊ ◊ ◊ (if you have knitted in the round before)
Tension: 22 stitches and 28 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch using 4mm needles.
This hat is knitted in the round, so no seams to sew up!
