Knit side to side on straight needles this rectangle hat has no button hole, just a tab that you can sew a favorite button to, so choose a fun funky vintage or ceramic button to complete the hat! A thick and thin handspun yarn is especially nice for this hat pattern. No increasing or decreasing necessary, just cast on, knit, purl, and bind off.
