MIKKI SUPER CHUNKY SIMPLE RIB HAT
NEW PATTERN! Due to lots of requests to release a Mikki Simple Rib Hat pattern for Super Chunky yarns - here it is!
This simple rib hat is a great basic for 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 (OR FIXED CIRCULARS)
Detailed row-by-row instructions for each size make this pattern super easy to follow! You can also dip into my free knit technique videos for additional help!
NOTE: Babies under 1 year - Instructions have been included for these baby sizes due to requests for Super Chunky Mikki Hats for customers' newborn and baby photoshoots. The two-layer turned back rib in this Super Chunky (Super Bulky) yarn makes the hat too thick and too warm for a small baby to wear for everyday use and is designed for photoshoots only.
