Need a go-to hat that works well for many sizes? Want something with more visual interest than plain stockinette or ribbing? Look no further. The texture throughout this hat works like ribbing, making it stretch to fit many sizes, from 18 inch circumference up to 26 inches fully stretched. If you need even more size options, try eliminating or adding chart repeats as needed. Bonus: There is no “wrong side.” Both sides of this stitch pattern look good as the right side. Choose your favorite or keep it reversible depending on your mood. Just be sure to use a removable fastener for your pompom in that case. Or if you prefer, no pompom at all. This hat is seamless, knit in the round, from the bottom up. Make it in a fluffy worsted or aran weight for a fast and satisfying project. The stretchiness allows it to fit many sizes making it perfect for gift knitting!
