Riga is a latvian inspired hat knitted in three colours, but only using two colours per row. The yarn in fingering weight wich makes for a light and comfy hat.

The hat has an approximately 54cm / 21.3” in circumference brim and 23cm / 9” height from CO edge to top-center of crown.
The size is for a unworn (unstretched) hat, the sample hat in the pictures is shown on a 56cm / 22” head.
The pattern also includes notes for enlargement/reduction.

Rauma – Finullgarn (175 m/ 50 g, 100 % wool)
35g color A = Grey 405
25g color B = White 401
15g color C = Red 419
Or any other fingering weight yarn at 191 yards / 175m / 50 g which gives you proper gauge.

2.5mm / US2 DPN:s or a long circular needle for magic loop. I knit loosely, so you should probably go up a needle size if you knit tight.
My advise: If you are a loose knitter like me I would recommend going down a needle size for the ribbing.

This pattern is available in Swedish and English.
