Working on a last minute gift? Need a quick and simple hat to make while watching your favorite movie or television show? This hat is made with one stitch pattern–twisted rib–but looks more interesting because of the needle change after the brim. Start with a regular size needle for worsted weight yarn and then switch up about 5 needle sizes to make the rest. The large jump in size makes a stretchy open rib hat.
