Halsey is a fantastic, yet simple, beanie with an anchor motif.  The thick ribbing section keeps it flexible for almost any of the FOUR DIFFERENT SIZES provided in the pattern.  A great way to try your hand at intarsia!  Basic crown decrease using k2tog in regular intervals.  Looks great in almost any color combination.  Halsey is a must knit nautical pattern for anyone living on any coast!

errata: The original pattern had 6 hat sizes.  I have since made a million versions of this hat and found that two of the sizes were irrelevant (too big and too small).  The youth hat fits on my 2, 9, and 13 year old perfectly fine, and looks terrific on all of them…not too baggy on the 2-year-old, not too stretched on the 13-year-old.  The newborn fits 0-3 months great, and the baby is made for heads between 3 months and two years.  The adult hat has also been tried on people of ALL head sizes.  I found an x-large size did not fit any of the people with “big” heads that I know, so I removed it from the pattern.
