NEW PATTERN! ...written for ARAN (US WORSTED) yarn.
Due to lots of requests for my popular Mikki Simple Rib Hat to be written for chunkier yarns.... here's my new MIKKI ARAN SIMPLE RIB HAT!

This simple rib hat is a great basic for everyone's winter wardrobe.... baby, boys, girls, teens, men and women!

Turn up the rib for a fitted hat with a double layer cuff,  or wear it unfolded and tall for a young contemporary look.

....this simple knit is the perfect project for new knitters, and a relaxing knit for experienced knitters!

Separate detailed instructions are included to knit this hat either FLAT on a pair of SINGLE POINTED needles / or IN THE ROUND on DPNs 

Detailed row by row instructions for each size make this pattern super easy! 
You can also dip into my free knit technique videos for additional help! 

As this hat is worked in rib the pattern requires you to use a smaller needle than the size recommended for your Aran (US Worsted) yarn. The smaller needle size will give you a neat rib with elasticity and memory (it will bounce back).
The ribbed hats shown here have been knitted in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and Milla Mia Naturally Soft Aran on 4mm (US6) needles.

Worked in k2, p2 rib with 4mm (US6) needles
Flat and un-stretched
35 sts    = 10cms/4 inches

Due to the elasticity of this rib structure, the hat is very narrow when lying flat and stretches for a snug fit.  The best fit for this hat is when the hat is stretched between the smallest and largest of its stretch capability. The sizes have been carefully worked out so they should be a great fit the ages listed below.
