Gepard Big Fat Hat
These hats in Teddy Dear can be made in two different versions, both with plenty of room for your hair. One version is a baggy beanie, the other one is a round beret. Both hats are one-size, but the circumference of the ribbed cuff depends upon your choise of needle size. Furthermore, you can choose to fasten your cuff or just fold it.
