Feat's Hat Pattern

Feat's Hat Pattern

This is similar to Kiara's big girl brimmed hat but more boyish. One of our neighbors in Guyana asked me to make a hat like Kiara's for her son so this is what I came up with. He is about 6 months old. It fits Kiah another 6 month old as well as her 1 and a half year old sister Kiara.
Make one for yourself or a friend but don't sell them. If you want to share the pattern, share the link and not the pattern itself. Happy Knitting!

This hat looks so great! I'm planning to knit it for my new nephew. This pattern is actually just what I've been looking for for my husband as well. How easily do you think the size could be adjusted?
