Foursquare brings to mind the boxy style of an iconic but understated American house. It is quick to knit and features a hemmed brim and four paired decreases that mimic the pyramid-shaped hipped roof found on foursquare houses.

The hat is one size fits all Adult (21-23” head)

The finished hat measures approx. 19” around. It will stretch!

This hat features a provisional cast on using a crochet hook. For help with this type of cast on, check out some of these great tutorials:
