Garter and Rib Hat

This is such an easy hat to knit, but pair the pattern with an interesting yarn with a lot of color, and it turns into something truly lovely. I’ve knit this up in several different colorways, and love to see how the color works with the stitch pattern. You won’t be able to stop at just one!

The stitch pattern is presented in written format.
