A cute little winter hat with a bit of a Nordic flair thanks to the classic stranded pattern. It knits up quickly in a worsted weight yarn and offers endless color options. It’s worked top-down which makes adjusting for personal taste quite easy. Add more rounds before the stranded pattern for a slouchier look or cut out some rounds if you want the hat to be more close fitting. Also depth of the ribbing is a matter of taste. I usually like a deeper ribbing for a snug fit, especially for the kids.

Note on yarns: The purple hat has been worked in fingering weight Shetland yarn held double. Which worked up to perfect gauge.
