Corrugated Ribbing and Colorwork in Contrasting Colors

Knit from the bottom up in the round with corrugated ribbing for the hem, this hat has a simple eight stitch repeat to form the pattern. The pattern will work best in solid and semi solid yarns with some contrast. The fit is loose, with minimal ease to help prevent “hat hair”.
