(Sample shown using 1 skein each of Malabrigo Dos, Indigo MC and Turquesa CC)
US 5/3 mm 16 inch (40cm) circular needle
US 6/4 mm 16 inch (40cm) circular needle (or size needed to obtain gauge)

The two sizes of this hat are acheived by working the same pattern at different gauges. You can use DK or Sport weight yarn for the small hat, which will result in a thicker hat. Or, use fingering weight yarn for a lighter weight hat.
