Beep be-boop!
Want a handmade Halloween costume this year? Have a geeky friend whose birthday is right around the corner? Or perhaps you are that geeky friend. That's okay. Be proud of who you are. Shout it out loud without saying a word. Knit this hat and wear it everyday, everywhere.

GAUGE
18 sts x 24 rows = 4in/10cm in stst

SIZE
Child[Adult Small, Adult Large]
Circumference = 19[21, 24]in/48[54, 61]cm

PATTERN NOTES
As written, a basic striped hat is knitted, and then details are added with duplicate stitch. You could instead use the chart for your given size to work the hat using stranded knitting.
