A classic unisex hat with just enough twisting-around to keep it interesting without being overwhelming! As written, it fits a 22-23” head and (at this row gauge) has a short, skull-cap fit, reminiscent of a vintage sailor’s beanie. If you prefer a longer hat or are getting a shorter row gauge than called for, you can easily add some length to the ribbing at the brim.

CLARIFICATION: This abbreviation has confused a few folks so just to be sure:

K3tbl = knit 1 stitch through the back loop, then another, then another. It is not a decrease (that would be k3togtbl, but I know some designers abbreviate it differently.)
