This is my favorite of the hats I've made. The pattern is really easy and it is worked in sc and hdc so it goes really fast. I have used ww to bulky yarns with the same hook and it has worked out just fine. The hats made with the bulky yarn are slightly bigger, but definitely not too big for a normal sized head.
