Semi ribbed hat question
Hey ladies, I'm (finally) working on a hat for my FIL for Christmas, in absolutely wonderful Malabrigo....yummy!! I love this yarn...oh I digress... back to the hat. I'm only wanting to do the fold over part (double covering on the ears) in 2x2 ribbing. But my question I stop the ribbing when the flip occurs, or do I rib for the same length on the other side of the flip? Does that make sense? I don't really have an exact pattern because I couldnt' find one that I liked, so I'm wondering, how long should the flip up part be? 2 inches or less?

Here's a handy recipe to make a hat just like you want -- it's plain on top, and has 2x2 ribbing just for the cuff area (fold is optional). These are the directions I used to make my very first project, so it's simple enough for even a super newbie to follow, while being versatile enough to allow you to figure out how to make any size hat using any gauge of yarn. (It has guidelines for cuff and total length measurements, BTW.) HTH

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

You can do either. I think I'd just do the ribbing on the fold up and not carry it up because you never know.... he might not fold it up at the same spot and there'd be part ribbing and part st st showing above it.
