Shaker Rib Hat 

This easy to knit ribbed hat is very stretchy, and will fit child's medium through adult small.

Shaker Rib Hat

Materials: Worsted weight yarn.

Needles: #6 US


To make a smaller hat, cast on fewer stitches (always use an even number) and make the hat shorter.

Cast on 80 sts.
Knit 1 row.

*K1, K into the stitch below* repeat across.
Repeat this row for ribbed pattern. Note that to "knit into the stitch below," insert the tip of the needle into the stitch directly below the one you would normally knit. When the stitch has been knitted and slipped off the left needle, both strands (from the last 2 rows) will have been knitted up by the current stitch.

Work in pattern until hat is 8" long.

Work in K1 P1 ribbing for 5 rows.
K2tog across.
Knit 1 row.
Break off yarn leaving a 12" tail. Pull through remaining stitches, and then sew seam. Weave in ends.
