This simple ribbed hat is great for donations. The ribbing makes it stretch so it fits a variety of sizes, as does the fold-over brim. It is a nice, unisex style that works with many fashion styles. Of course, you don’t need to donate this hat, you can make it for yourself or for a gift for someone you know. No matter who you make it for, it will provide warmth and style.
