Flynn is a rib knit hat with a texture that’s not too plain or too complex- versatile for many occasions and many personalities! The ribbing not only provides visual and tactile interest, it helps the hat stretch where it needs to and stay snug where it should. Knit primarily in the Farrow Rib stitch, there are only two different rows to work until the crown, making Flynn an easy-to-memorize, quick knit, perfect for binge watching all those tv shows you have on your Netflix/Hulu/Prime queues.
