This versatile hat can be made with a rolled brim for a feminine look, or with a ribbed brim for the whole family. Rib it from beginning to end, and you have a classic beanie!
It is sized for men, women, and children.
It is easy and quick to knit, and it flatters even people who say that they aren't "hat people."
These instructions assume that you have knit with circular and double-pointed needles. If you have not, you may want to work with our learning version of this pattern!
Yarn: Yarn that knits at 4.5 to 5 stitches per inch (worsted-weight yarn), 3.5 stitches per inch (bulky yarn), or 2 stitches per inch (super-bulky yarn).
Yardage: 200 yards of worsted, 120 yards of bulky, or 90 of super bulky. You can use one strand of bulky yarn knitted with one strand of worsted yarn to equal one strand of super-bulky yarn.
Cynthia has put her Ph.D. in ed. psych. to work full time in the fiber arts, designing Really Clear patterns that are clear, easy-to-understand, and fun to make! (She thinks hard about how to explain things so that you don't need a Ph.D. to make them!) Her patterns and tutorials are found at www.reallyclear.com.
