52 hats :: 11 - Broken Rib Hat (free pattern)
I made this hat before (it was actually the last hat I made last year and the one I had so much fun with that it started the whole 52 hats idea) and liked it very much.
Naming patterns is not a thing I'm good at. This name? I know, it sounds weird. But that's what the stitch pattern I used on the rib was called. I found it in a book that once belonged to my grandmother. It looks very intrigate, but it's actually just simple slipped stitches that create this effect. Really fun to knit and a great one to use for the brim of a simple hat.\
Want to make one? You can download the free pattern here. Let me know if you have any problems or questions. I also love to hear from you if you make it.
Have you been knitting hats this month? I'd love to see them! The next Mad Hatters Link Party will be up on Saturday (March 31st).
