Soft and warm, the Lykens Hat combines snug ribbing with a cozy slip stitch crown. Directions are given for a classic watch cap fit; working more rounds of the slipped stitch before shaping can make a more modern slouch version.
One size fits most adults. There is a lot of stretch in the ribbing. The finished circumference is 18.25" and the height is 8.5".
The sample is shown in two colors: Nest (ribbing) and Faun (crown). One skein of each color will give you enough yarn to make two hats, the reverse of each other.
A US size 8 (5 mm) 16" circular needle and removable stitch markers, one in Color A, seven in Color B, are the tools you will need for this hat.
