  • Description

    Everyone needs a ribbed hat! This unisex hat is designed in North Bay Fiber, Elemental. The springy, soft cormo wool, paired with a simple 1x1 ribbing, makes for a fantastic hat to knit and wear. This pattern offers three sizes and options for both a slouchy version or a beanie style. You may also knit the hat in one color or mix it up with a contrasting brim. I have knit many of these hats and I have a feeling you will too!
