This is a fun, ribbed hat in two sizes - one to fit adults and one for babies. There is a lot of stretch in the ribbing, so the "adult" hat will fit most children, too. I named this pattern after my dad, since the first one I made was for him. See notes at the end for making this hat in custom sizes and other gauges.
