Any aran yarn, I have used 1 skein of West Yorkshire Spinners Croft Aran, you will need around 220 m
5mm Tunisian crochet hook
Pompom of choice approx. 12 cm in diameter
5 Tss and 5 rows to 2.5 cm measured over Tss pattern using 5 mm hook.
This hat is a snug fit beanie, if you would like to make it larger, you will need to add multiple of 14 sts pattern repeat, you will also need to make the ribbing longer to accommodate the additional stitches.
If you would like it more slouchy add more rows, please take into account that you will need more yarn if you are adjusting the size.
Each 14 sts pattern repeat measures approx. 7 cm
The finished hat without any stretch and before blocking measures approx. 43.5 cm in circumference and 21 cm in length not including pompom. Please bear in mind that the ribbing stretches a lot.
