Inspired by the Italian designer, this easy hat can be done two ways - in a 2 color scheme or as the ultimate stash buster in multiple colors! Knit from the bottom up in the round, the brim is a simple K1P1 rib with the body in plain Stockinette stitch. Instructions are both written and charted. Pattern updated 3/4/12 to reflect that you can now choose between DK weight and Worsted weight versions! DK uses size 2&3 needles while the worsted uses size 8 for a faster knit-up!!
