How much wool for a Hudson hat?

Would 4 oz. be enough/too much? I keep seeing these TDF colorways but a lot of the time only one 4 oz. skein is available, which is not enough for longies for my gigantic DS. I was thinking a hat, or maybe a sweater? I LOVE the hooded tunics I've seen, how much wool for an 18 month-ish size??

Thanks Mamas!

4ozs. of most yarns will get you any sized Hudson Hat.

For a sweater you would need at least as much as you would for a pair of longies.

You'd be safe with three skeins for a hooded tunic. Mine was a 2-4 year old size and took a little less than 2 skeins and I didn't do the hood. I would not have had enough. Better to have too much than too little.

I was going to say 3 skeins for a hooded pullover, too. I'm always scared of running out

I just weighed a toddler sized Hudson Hat that I just finished....2.2 ounces, that's without the tassles. A size 3-4 sweater I just finished took about 2.5 skeins.
