A simple knit and purl stitch combination adds a dash of texture to this easy hat offered in two versions. Choose which style, after casting on and knitting the brim. Increase, more or less, stitches at the crown for the version you prefer, or make both! Just 2 oz. of fiber, spun to 10 wpi, or 150 yards of worsted weight yarn is enough for either style.
