A densely textured pattern worked at a relatively tight gauge makes this hat warm even on blustery days. It begins with a decorative cast-on followed by a few garter ridges, then changes to a rib pattern with slip stitches that draws in width wise for a sturdy fabric. If you prefer a little more drape, follow the instructions for the looser gauge of 3½ stitches/inch instead.
The hat shown here is worked in Aran-weight yarn, but instructions are provided for five different gauges that run the gamut from fingering weight to bulky yarn.
