While watching the Winter Olympics in February, I noticed the hats the American commentators were wearing looked hand-knit. Modeled after those hats, this hat is knit with a large ribbed band, stockinette to the unisex decreases, and is turned inside out so the backside of the stockinette stitch is shown when worn.
I know I just offered up a free hat on Friday, but I had this one worked out already, and figured it was better to just put it out there than hold onto it for a later date. This way I get to show off hat #51 on time, and you get two free patterns in less than a week!
