This ribbed hat in bulky yarn with a folded up cuff in boucle reminds me of something Lara might have worn in Dr. Zhivago. The boucle cuff is worked in stockinette stitch from the wrong side, then folded up when worn. The body of the hat is worked in either bulky weight yarn or worsted weight used doubled. Because of the bulk of the yarn, the hat is somewhat oversized.
