The Little Pond Hat is a simple ribbed hat which alternates its ribbing pattern every 5 stitches to create a unique texture. It is a great hat for anyone who wants a “simple” hat but stockinette is just too simple. The pattern is stretchy enough to fit any adult head and can be easily extended for people who want an extra tall brim.

You’ll want to be comfortable with both SSK and K2tog in order to complete the crown (though in a pinch you can use whatever decrease you prefer).

Pick out 150-170y of any worsted weight and cast on 80 stitches, it is a quick knit and makes a great gift!
