Designer Note about sizing…This hat is intended to be worn with 1-2” of negative ease. If a looser hat is desired, try sizing up. When in doubt about which size to make, make the size you think you should and add perhaps an inch to the length. The recipient can always fold the brim up, watch cap style.
Keep in mind the sizes are a general guide, since heads can vary so much!
