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.

  1. Thank you for the patterns, I will put them to good use.

    I am looking for patterns for small/med/lg dogs. I live in a rain forest and it keeps us plenty wet about 3/4 of the year (it is dry at present),
    If you have any thoughts as to how/where I can make a slit (something like a buttonhole will work I think) I would appreciate hearing what you think.
    Meanwhile, I will be exploring your other patterns.
    Thanks once again,
    ps, please do not give out my info.

  2. I like to knit and make mittens hats scarfs and donate them to the street people. Also like to make baby outfits.
