Something different in a knit hat!

Welts and knitting the rows from top to bottom along with short row shaping give this hat a different look.

It's easy to do, there are no circular needles required. Just cast on and work it flat. The only stitches you need to know are knit and purl with an occasional wrapped and slipped stitches, instructions included for the last two skills, (To slip is to move a stitch over with out working it, to wrap a stitch is to put a single loop of yarn around the neck of a stitch.)

Go ahead, cast this "ZZ like" hat on. You'll love your end result.
