DETAILS
After knitting the Stria Cardigan, I just haven’t been able to get enough of Half-Fishermen’s Rib and stripes! I decided the best use of the leftover yarn would be a cozy hat! The squishy, elastic nature of this stitch pattern means it has great stretch, and each size can fit a variety of noggins. This hat is worked from the brim to the crown, and thanks to the gauge difference between regular ribbing and Half-Fishermen’s Rib, you only need one needle size!

SUGGESTED YARN
For this hat I chose a US-grown and milled, single-breed, Corriedale wool. It is both strong and next-to-skin soft, making it a perfect choice for the Stria Hat!
