Notes

CO 96 stitches and working in k2, p2 until decreases.

making it for Christmas.

Hat turned out nice but not all that crazy about this type of decrease. I love how stretchy this rib hat is, so it’s very forgiving if you don’t have measurements for the person’s head.

Future Mod: I would begin the ribbing on smaller needles for the first inch or two so it has a bit more ‘holding’ at the brim.

Still need to weigh the skein to know how much I used though, eyeballing it, I’d say it’s quite possible to get 2 out of this yarn.
Will take pictures soon.
