A quick knit ribbed hat that stretches for lots of sizes. The hand-dyed chunky yarn is soft and warm and is available in a range of beautiful self striping colorways. This hat pattern is one of the unusual ones that doesn't require double point needles up at the top or a different size needles for the ribbing. You can easily finish this as a quick gift!
