An easy, fun ribbed hat that's very wearable. One strand of yarn is used with smaller needles for a neat ribbed band. A second colour is then added and the two are knit together on much larger needles in a simple slipped stitch rib pattern that's wonderfully warm and lofty.
There are lots of possibilities for colour play using this marled technique — high and low contrast combinations can be equally effective. The hat is long enough to be worn slouchy or with the brim folded up. Decreases are worked rapidly at the crown, creating a gathered effect. It’s a great option for any gift recipient who will be pleased to receive something that looks like it could have been store bought. Shown in De Rerum Natura Ulysse, sport weight merino from France.
