Happy Thoughts

This hat is  fun to knit and I believe that if you’re wearing something you loved to make, it makes your thoughts happier, too.Happy Thoughts is a slightly slouchy hat with texture. It’s worked from bottom up in the round. The garment is very stretchy and one size fits almost everyone. If needed, the size is easy to adjust by reducing / increasing the amount of CO-sts by 4.
