Everyone deserves a cute fun beanie with pompoms, no matter how grown up they are! The Zealana Rimu DK makes for such a warm and soft beanie and the fold-up brim keeps the ears especially cosy. Head sizes vary a lot so knit according to measurement rather than approximate age. The average adult will take the adult size, whereas the large adult size is there for people with lots of wild hair and a big noggin (like me).
