Barnes knits up quickly in the round using a simple ribbing and a clever decrease stitch for the crown. Written in one size, the hat is very stretchy and will fit most heads. Wear it tall like a retro ski cap, relaxed and slouchy, or as a watchcap (just fold up the brim).

Colorful and soft Noro Kiso is available at Knitting Bee. One skein of Kiso will make two hats…one for you and one for a friend!

Originally designed for Knitting Bee’s 12 Weeks of Gifts KAL, 2014 and re-released for Fall 2017.
