Beverly A. Qualheim 2008,2014- All Rights Reserved My mom knitted me a hat for
college in Wisconsin many years ago. I still wear it, and decided a few
years ago I should try to make one just like it and write down a
pattern to share on Bev's Country Cottage. This is that
hat! Fun to knit and so cute!
teen or woman (man) Needles:
Size US 5 and 6
(you can use larger needles for a larger hat but I
wanted these to be a tighter weave, and to make it look just like the
hat my mom made me.) 4 oz of worsted
weight yarn (1 skein will work) You can make this hat larger by
adding more rows. Make a child's size hat by using
smaller needles (3 and 4) and sport weight, sock, or baby yarn) Using smaller
needles: Cast On 90 sts for brim Knit 4 1/2" (5")
Ribbing in Knit 3, Purl 3
