Ever needed a quick present to knit, but you don’t know the recipient’s measurements? Join the club! You could try a scarf or shawl, but not everyone wears those and sometimes you just need a pattern that will fit, no matter what. That’s where the Osserfah (One Size Fits All) beanie comes in.

You can adapt this pattern in many different ways: do colourwork on the body, add stripes, make it slouchy, or add a roll-over brim.

The instructions below are for the knitted sample with two thin stripes in the body, in a contrast colour. Go crazy and get creative, so long as you stick to the ribbing and decrease pattern you can be safe in the knowledge that the hat will fit!
