The FOREVER FERN hat is showing little leaves all around and a wonderful crown solution. The pattern is a real one-round-wonder and surprisingly simple when it comes to the crown.
The hat has a brim, is very stretchy, slightly slouchy and well-fitting at the same time. It’s important to note that there are 4-stitch-decreases to be knit in every pattern round. You can do it, knitters!

The hat can be knit in multiple sizes only by changing needle size and gauge; Block the finished cap over a steep-sided bowl or other head-shaped form to smooth the crown.
