This simple ribbed hat is great for donations; it stretches, has a fold-up brim, fits a variety of sizes, is unisex, and has a classic look.


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.

Pattern Notes

  • Read through all instructions before beginning.
  • The stitch count is at the end of each rnd/row after the period, usually only if the count has changed from the previous rnd/row. {count here}
  • Chs and sl sts are not included in stitch counts unless specified.

Ribbed Donation Hat Pattern

Cast on 80 (96) sts, begin working in the round using a marker to mark the end of the round


Row 1: (K2,p2).
Repeat Row 1 until work measures 8 (10) inches.
*10 inches will fold up about 1″ on a large head, so if you want a thicker folded up section, or a hat that doesn’t pull down against the top of the head, you may want to make this part longer.


Row 1: (K2, p2tog) to end. – {60 (72) sts}
Rows 2-5: (K2, p1) to end.
Row 6: (K2tog, p1) to end. – {40 (48) sts}
Rows 7-9: (K1, p1) to end.
Row 10: K2tog to end. – {20 (24) sts}
Row 11:
K all.
Row 12: K2tog to end. – {10 (12) sts}

Wear or give and enjoy!

  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.
