It’s a cozy hat; the folded brim will keep ears warm in just about any weather. You only need to know one stitch – the knit stitch – and you’ll get practice both knitting flat and in the round. The pattern itself is written in simple “knitter-speak” – if you are a beginner, you’ll want to also read the technical notes before you start.

Hat uses less than one skein of worsted weight yarn - perhaps try some fingerless knits with the remainder?
