Barnes knits up quickly in the round using a simple ribbing and a clever decrease stitch for the crown. Written in one size, the hat is very stretchy and will fit most heads. Wear it tall like a retro ski cap, relaxed and slouchy, or as a watchcap (just fold up the brim).

Colorful and soft Noro Kiso is available at Knitting Bee. One skein of Kiso will make two hats…one for you and one for a friend! Other great bulky yarn choices include Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky and Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande.

Originally designed in Rowan Fazed Tweed (discontinued) for Knitting Bee’s 12 Weeks of Gifts KAL, 2014 and re-released for Fall 2017.
