Intro
This Scribble Hat is a universal beanie that you can decorate with your own choice of charts included in the pattern. With its schematic illustration and explanation, you can easily adjust the number of stitches and rows to whatever size or height you wish to make it. The longer the brim the warmer your ears!
For small or big peeps, boys or girls, all colour and chart combinations are possible with this hat recipe. The repeats come in numbers of 10 stitches and are memorizable without effort. Scribble is inspired by childrens’ drawings. Scribble is also available in a sweater project for kids and adults. This hat project is great for using up your stash.
