Pippi Earflap Hat: Pippi is knit in the round, and uses four 50 gm balls of worsted weight yarn in assorted colors. This is enough yarn to make two hats, if you change the stripe sequence at the top. There’s not quite enough of color A to get two identical hats.
This pattern is sized for adults, 20 inches and 22 inches head circumference.
Gauge is approximately 4.75 stitches per inch in color patterns stockinette stitch.
Why Pippi? Because DH said I looked like Pippi Longstocking with my red braids!
