I have made one and I love it. I put a pompom on mine. Not the greatest picture but I don't have a styrofoam head

Oh yes, this is a great hat. Not too slouchy but not a close-fitting head hugging beanie, either. I think it offers up the best of both worlds. The grass green color is unexpected, I must say. But I am digging it. I think it would look great with some dreads or braids hanging out from underneath. What do you think? -)

I need to make this bigger my brother has a big head how do I go about it? Just chain more or do I have to do something else? Thank you.

This is one of my favorite Beginner beanie patterns. The interesting texture belies how simple this hat really is, especially for a Bottom Up project. The text instructions are clearly written, but Im not sure every Beginner could identify the Back Horizontal Bar. If you have any questions, I strongly suggest watching the embedded instructional video for this project. I normally at least skim through any videos provided by the designer anyway.

How much yarn is required for this project

Hi Barbara, I would guess you'd need less than a skein. :) Julia, AFC editor
