Gentleman hat

This hat is the result of my search for a fast and easy hat for my little boy for Fall. I wanted it to be simple and yet have an interesting twist to it.

I had the idea of turning this beautiful stitch pattern from my Barbara Walker treasury into a hat for quite a while and when I finally went stash diving, I found I had some Valley Yarns Valley Superwash DK in this nice shade of blue:

I decided to go on with this idea, and whipped this nice little hat for my son.

I love the all around ribbing, making it an almost brainless knit that is only broken by the twisted stitches to keep it interesting. This is exactly the kind of hat both my son and husband will wear, and I can easily imagine making one for myself as well, it is totally unisex!

 I made the pattern in 3 sizes, child (women, men) or 16 (19, 22.5) inches circumference. Feel free to experiment with yarn weight, make it slouchy by adding repeats or simple make it as the pattern suggest!

Pattern is available for free on Ravelry and Craftsy.
