Crochet Pull-on Hat
This hot water bottle cover uses an impressive herringbone stitch pattern, which is only two rows and makes for a lovely dense fabric. The cover is designed with a loose rib neck so that it simply pulls over the hot-water bottle.
Actual Head circumference: 52 cm / 20.5 inches

As crochet is not very elastic there is only a small amount of negative ease

It is possible to increase the hat size by lengthening the brim, and it could then also be slouchy rather than close fitting
