Favorite Ribbed Hat with Slipped Stitch Hem
Designed to work in both stretchy and non-stretchy yarns (like alpaca or silk blends). The hat is knit from the bottom up, with a slipped stitch hem to help keep the edge from flaring out. A decorative yarn over round completes the edging and makes the hat more interesting. Instead of the usual ribbing, a slipped stitch ribbing is used to provide negative ease- this helps keep the hat from stretching out too much and keeps the hat in place. Knit in DK weight yarn, pattern includes 8 sizes from preemie to x-large. Includes variations.
Pattern comes with 3 variations so you can choose which you want to print: 8 page version with pattern variations, 2 and 4 page versions without variations.
