This hat begins with a ribbed brim worked lengthwise; stitches are then picked up from along the top edge and knit up in the round to the crown decreases. The hatband may be seamed or closed with a button. I think the seamed version would be wonderful for men! The pattern offers four sizes from a child’s up to adult large: 15.25-21.75″/38.5-55 cm. Worked in a bulky weight yarn this hat is incredibly quick to knit up, and the ridge and lace pattern makes it cosy without being overly hot.
