To the left, to the left, to the left. A simple shift to the left in the columns of ribbing creates an interesting design good for everyone. Worked from the top down with directions for three different brim treatments, this hat is easy to customize for fit and style!


  • Three sizes - Adult - 17”, 19.75”, 22.5”; fits 17-19” (19-21”, 21-23”)
  • Three brim options - garter, folded rib and toque
  • Worked top-down, so easily adjustable for length
  • Good way to use up bits of different colors with one for the body and another for the brim.
  • Intermediate level as I have not listed specific versions for cast-on, increase or bind-off.
  • Only the stitch pattern for the body is charted; pattern is written in full.
