Ribbon Stitch Hat
Taking inspiration from the mission and guidelines of Wool-Aid, the Ribbon Stitch Hat is designed to create a warm woolen hat for a child who lives in the coldest climate and has the least access to resources. The hat is worked as a modification of Ribbon Stitch (400 knitting stitches, p168) giving the knitter something interesting to do, but keeping the texture simple enough for either gender. This may be considered an advanced beginner or intermediate pattern because you’ll be working with two colors, just one per round, then slipping stitches. This hat takes just a few hours to knit, making the Ribbon Stitch Hat perfect for a charity such as Wool-Aid!
