This pattern has two sizes. The larger is the same as the smaller size, but with an additional repeat. The upper portion of the hat will be very slouchy. The finished measurements of the smaller size seem quite small with a 17” unstretched circumference. However, remember that hats should [usually] fit with negative ease. The 17” finished size fits very comfortably on my [22” circumference] head. If you want something just a touch larger you might consider going up a needle size instead of working the larger version. The larger size is good for folks with lots of hair that don’t want as much pressure on their hair (lesser hat-head effect).
