This pattern is available for free.

This stretchy ribbed hat will fit a span of sizes, from older child to average adult. Mods for a toddler or x-large adult are also included.

The decreases do not “swirl” around the head, instead, the ribbing gets smaller, and the top is kitchenered.

The original hat was 100% wool dyed with Kool-Aid, but any yarn from heavy worsted to aran, will work.

Thanks you, beckylynn13, for tips on making smooth stripes.
