Wide Rib Hat Knitting Pattern- a unique ribbed pattern that's surprisingly simple to knit!
This Wide Rib Hat Knitting Pattern may look complicated but it's actually beginner-friendly. If you can knit and purl, you can make this hat! I used one of my favorite chunky yarns for this project- Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. Once you get the hang of the pattern, this hat knits up really fast!
