I’m not a designer, but I do love this little hat I came up with. Actually, it’s mostly a stitch pattern. And I love the concept, but am still warming to this color combo.
For worsted I cast on 80 with #6, for fingering 132 with #2. Then I increase by 8 after my brim (between 1.5 & 3″ of rib of choice).
And then add a contrast color every other row. K1P1 around, next row knit, P1K1 around, next row knit. Repeat until decreases.
