The Roosevelt Park Hat (formerly called Raven’s Preseason Hat) is a quick little project that uses increasingly short stripes to create a cool graphic look (I love patterns where it looks like you’ve done something fancy and complicated, but all you’re really doing is something a simple as striping two colors of yarn). Plus, you carry the yarn up inside the hat which means you have just 4 ends to weave in when done knitting.

This pattern was originally published on my blog in August 2012 as one size. I’ve updated the pattern to include three sizes:

  • Small: 16” circumference by 7” height which stretches to fit an 18-19” head.
  • Medium: 18 1/2” circumference by 8” height which stretches to fit a 20-21” head
  • Large: 21” circumference by 9” height which stretches to fit a 24” head
