Weekend Ribbed Hat

Lion Brand® Homespun®


16 stitches + 20 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Knit 2, purl 2 Rib, unstretched.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Knit 2, purl 2 Rib (multiple of 4 stitches)
Row 1: *
Knit 2, purl 2; repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2: Knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches.
Repeat Row 2 for knit 2, purl 2 Rib.


1. Hat is worked flat and then seamed.
2. When you see "- 12 stitches" in the instructions, this tells you how many stitches you will have at the end of that specific row.

Cast on 68 stitches.
Work in Knit 2, purl 2 Rib until piece measures about 7 in. (18 cm) from beginning.
Decrease Row: *Knit 2, purl 2 together; repeat from * to end of row - 51 stitches at the end of this row.
Rib Row 1: *Knit 1, purl 2; repeat from * to end of row.
Rib Row 2: *Knit 2, purl 1; repeat from * to end of row.
Repeat last 2 rows until piece measures about 10 in. (25.5 cm) from beginning, end with a Rib Row 1 as your last row.
Shape Crown (Top of Hat)
Decrease Row:
*Knit 1, knit 2 together; repeat from * to last 2 stitches, knit 2 - 34 stitches.
Beginning with a purl row, work in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) for 5 rows.
Decrease Row: *Knit 2 together; repeat from * to end of row - 17 stitches.
Cut yarn, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread tail into blunt needle and then through remaining stiches. Pull to gather. Knot securely, then use yarn tail to seam Hat.

Weekend Ribbed Hat Reviewed by Rhonda Marr on 2015-01-11 *****
I want to thank you profusely, for a 2-needle cap pattern. Everyone wants to use double pointed needles. I hate them. I am always stabbing myself with them. So this pattern is awesome and I am really grateful for it! Thanks!
