Let's get started with my easy knit hat pattern.
Skills Required: Knit, purl, cast on, bind off, k2tog
Gauge: 2.5 sts and 4.5 rows = 1 inch
Materials: Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick
Needles: US 13 (9mm) and 15 (10mm)
Abbreviations: K, k = knit, P, p = purl, K2tog = knit 2 sts together
Notes: This hat pattern will fit most adults because it's nice and stretchy.
When I designed it I made it for a head measurement of 20 inches however it is really very stretchy and will fit most adults.
My head size is 22 inches and it's a nice hug on my head. :)
The measurement from the crown to the ribbing is about 9 inches (sewn up) so it actually fits really nicely on your head.

With smaller needles (US 13) cast on 52 sts. I used the long tail cast on.
Knit 2 X 2 (K2, P2) for 2 inches.
Switch to larger needles (US 15) and knit garter stitch until work measures 7 inches from beginning.
Row 1: K2, k2tog across row
Row 2: Knit 3 rows
Row 5: K2tog across row
Break yarn and thread through tapestry needle. Push needle and yarn through remaining sts and pull tight. Push needle through sts one more time.
Seam up and weave in ends. Enjoy!
