View Full Version : hat ribbing

10-16-2006, 10:19 PM
Hey all,

wondering if I can use ribbing for an entire touque? I usually do K2, P2 for the ribbing and then just K for the rest of the hat (in the round). I was wondering if I could do the whole hat in the k2/p2 or maybe switch to K3 P3 or something like that after my normal 1.5 inches of ribbing just for a different look.

will this make the hat fit funny? or look funny? I'm using the Patons Shetland Chunky in brown tweed.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions! post pictures if you have any of hats like this!

You can make ribbed hats all the way up. They're very stretchy.

There are some mixed in with these. (http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/hats.php)
