Reviews
heads up - comfy cozy hat is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good beginner project, with some help. This hat uses 10.5 needles and #4 yarn so it works up fairly quickly. Since it is all worked in knit stitch, it's a good beginner project. This would be a good charity hat for shelters and hospitals.
