The Homesteader Hat is a broken ribbed beanie that will quickly become everyone’s favorite. The easily memorized stitch pattern produces a wonderfully squishy and stretchy fabric to accommodate everyone in the family! You can easily modify this pattern by adjusting the brim and/or the length to give you a perfect fitting hat!

Worked in the round from the bottom up starting with the brim. After working 2x2 ribbing to created a folded double brim, you will then begin working the body of the hat in the broken rib pattern repeat. As written the hat has a semi-slouchy fit but is easily modified to fit your personal preference.
