INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES

Hat is worked on straight needles.  Alternatively, you may work around using a 16”/40.5cm circular needle.

Hint: If you tend to knit tighter, use a larger needle or a loose cast-on method to cast on the stitches for the rib, which must stretch to fit.  To tighten a too-loose cast-on, weave in elastic thread along reverse side of ribbing.
