One Knitted Ribbed Hat

Hello friends,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I can't believe it's over already! I just finished knitting a ribbed stitch hat over the weekend and looking forward to wearing it when it gets colder. I have also started knitting some socks as a gift for my mom for Christmas which I will post about later this week! below are some photos of the hat I wanted to share with you.


A photo of myself wearing the hat 


Pattern: the pattern is very simple 
  • Cast on 70 stitches on magic loop needles( or more depending on the size of your head, needles, and yarn), divide stitches between the two needles 
  • knit two stitches, then purl two stitches all the way around to create the ribbed stitch
  • Once you knit up to the crown of your head, begin to decrease 
  • Decide how many decreases you would like to make on the decreasing rows (example: I knit 7 then knit together two, then repeated all around, then knit/purl a row, then the next row I knit 6 then knit together ...etc...)
  • Keep to the knitting and purling of the ribbed stitch pattern. On my first attempt I knit to decrease the top and it looked odd with garter stitch instead of ribbed stitch! 
  • Once you end up with 6 or 7 stitches, pull the yarn through with a darning needles and then tie a knot and weave in the strand under the top of the hat. 

Then you are finished! hope the pattern wasn't too confusing I made it up from making hats for quite some time and following other's patterns.


Thank you for visiting! I hope you all have a good night and have a great week :)
