Inspired by school and college colors. Eye-catching stripes color work in an easy pattern for a basic man’s hat.

Makes a great give-away as gift or charity project.

Drop down one needle size and you can make this a woman’s size or you can follow my other pattern for a women’s hat at this link

This project is worked in 2X2 rib and stockinette.

The color design can easily be modified because the color choices are endless.

This pattern uses standard US terminology.

Thank you for choosing this pattern.

Please note that the size is approximate and will be affected by the gauge and the brand of yarn.

Round 44 in the pattern shows that I skipped K2 K2tog & K1 K2tog - this is not an error, I deliberately skipped these add’l rounds because I didn’t want the hat to have too much slouch but that’s my personal preference, if you want more slouch, simply add add’l rounds until you have desired shape before you bind off.
