I just love this rib hat! Partly because it is nice to crochet and warm to wear and partly because the short rows forms a pattern that reminds me of natural patterns like a river delta, mangrove forest and icicles.

The hat is made in one piece sideways and shaped with short rows.

Hat sizes:
Adult: height 28,5 cm, circumference 53 cm
Big child/teen: height 26,5 cm, circumference 48 cm
Small child: height 24,5 cm, circumference 43 cm
The hat fits many head sizes as the pattern has a lot of elasticity. You can allways make an extra wedge if the hat turnes out too small.
