DK yarn with 4mm needles. The little hat can then fit on top of a bottle.

Your quote "The little hat can then fit on top of a bottle."

More information please? What bottle, you've lost me here! Don't understand what you mean? Please explain???

Fran, the pattern is for a small hat which can fit on top of an Innocent Smoothie bottle. People all over the UK (and parts of Europe) are knitting these small hats to raise money for Age charities to help keep the elderly warm over winter.

Hope this helps!
