Olive’s Ribbed Hat is a simple little hat with a great fit, designed for babies and young children. It features an allover ribbed pattern, i-cord edges and ties, as well as integrated earflaps, and is worked with either 1 strand of Merino or 2 strands of Compatible Cashmere throughout.

Olive’s Ribbed Hat is worked from the bottom up, and both flat and in the round. You start with the i-cord ties before you continue with the earflaps and back brim, working back and forth. Afterwards, the front brim is shaped with German short rows, and the hat is subsequently finished in the round. I-cord edges that mirror the ties finish the bottom edges of the front and back brim.
