Men's Ribbed Hat

Image of Men's Ribbed Hat Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This soft and warm hat is made with Simply Soft yarn by Caron but can be made with any soft worsted weight yarn. It is fast and easy to make and I ended up making 8 of these in about 5 days for Christmas in 2012.

The yarn I used for this hat is Caron Simply Soft which is a bit thinner than Red Heart worsted weight yarn. You may need to adjust your size according to what yarn you use and who's head you are making it for.

Sizes Note: I adjusted the size by eliminating one or more of the increasing rounds. The size in the photo fits my Husband's Head and it is for an average man's sized head. It can be made for women by changing the colors. If you make it for a child, just decrease the number of rows in the cuff area and by eliminating either the last 2 or 1 increasing rounds.
