I had some scraps of fleece leftover from recent projects and this pattern from a recent 99 cent sale. The two came together accidentally to result in 2 hats. This was a fun and quick project. The first hat, in grey fleece view here was too big and fell over my eyes. My head measured between 22" and 23" and I had cut the bigger size. I took a tuck in the back to fix it. For the second (raspberry fleece) hat I cut the smaller size. This involved a shorter band and also smaller circles for the top of the hat. I like the look of the overall smaller hat better. The fleece stretches quite a lot so I would make the smaller size even for a larger head.

This is a very quick project, 30 minutes at most. and a fun way to use up some of those bits of fabric leftover. The pattern includes 6 or 7 hats, scarves, a bag, and a roll-up blanket. These are all designed for fleece. My pattern is numbered P337 but I see it numbered as 9551 also.
