254 Essential Ribbed Hat
This simple, one skein hat is knit from the top down so you can make the most of your yardage – and not run out of yarn halfway up the crown! It's very easy to modify to different sizes, too. Just continue increasing 8 sts every other round until it fits, then knit down. You might need more than one skein, though, if you make it larger.
