Zeebad is the worsted version of Zebedee. My quest to keep the patterns as similar as possible resulted in a few extra options for the worsted version of this hat. If knit to pattern specs it has more of a slouchy beret shape than Zebedee. For a fitted hat you can choose one size smaller than you normally would or decrease the number of repeats of the eyelet section by one. This version looks equally well laced or unlaced if knit in a plain textured yarn like the one shown.
