Betty is a wonderfully engaging hat pattern, working up incredibly quickly in bulky weight 8-ply yarn. I now understand why bulky weight hats are so incredibly popular and addictive! I managed to knit two of them in a couple of days. They made ideal last-minute gifts for some very knitworthy people in my life.

Worked in the round, Betty contains written directions and charts.

Betty is written to be worked on circular needles. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method. However, the pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double pointed needles throughout instead.

Curt is seen here wearing the hat and has a 22” (56 cm) circumference head.

Betty is available in French, German, & English.
