A Free Hat Knitting Pattern for you!

Here's a quick knit little hat I worked up this weekend. Adriafil Crea yarn has a very nice striping effect and made for a very fun knitting project. 

Hat sizes: Child (Youth, Adult)

Completed Hat Measures: 16 1/2 (17 1/2, 18 1/2)" Please note this hat has quite a bit of stretch and if made to gauge should fit very well.
