This easy little hat is best worn by someone who has (or needs) a little spunk. It manages to mold to and flatter the head of its wearer—and the little I-cord “zipple” up top acts as an exclamation point instead of mere decoration. Most of the hat is constructed in garter stitch knit in the round (yes, you will have to purl! horrors!), then a purl ridge leading into an easy pentagon-shaped stockinette crown. The bulky bouclé yarn makes it a quick knit and causes the normally ordinary garter stitch to appear almost exotic. Zipple on!
