Franzia Hat

The Franzia Hat is perfect for working up at a knit night, when you want to spend your time focused on friends and wine, rather than a complicated stitch pattern.

As said by the hat model, Amy, “Quick and dirty, like a box wine.”

NOTE: You should not need double pointed needles for this hat. Simply work the decreases until you can no longer knit them comfortably on the circular needles, and your hat is done! If you prefer, you can work a modified magic loop for the last few decrease stitches to have less to bind off, but this is not necessary.

80-100 yds super bulky yarn

Knit Picks Tuff Puff (100% wool; 44 yds / 40 meters per 100 grams)
