Finished dimensions before blocking. Rib band about 18(21, 24, 27), inches, if you get gauge. Blocked this hat measured from crown to purl edge about 9 1/2 inches tall and 22 inches in circumference.
Blocking this hat consisted of hand washing by submersion, then laid flat to dry. I used a towel to remove the excess water, by patting it dry. You may use other ways of blocking as for a tam, or a bigger slouchy hat. It has a negative ease of about 1 to 2 inches.
