This hat is a quick project created with super bulky yarn.
The pattern includes instructions for both a beanie (pictured) and a roll-up brim version. Because the cables are reversible, the rolled up brim looks just the same as the outside of the hat!
When designing the hat, I used a superwash wool-blend yarn (WOOLADDICTS Fire by Lang). Superwash wool and wool-blend yarns often grow when blocked, so the gauge that I have indicated (12 sts/4”) was measured after blocking. This is important! If you are using a non-superwash wool or wool-blend, you will likely need larger needles than the US 11/8mm indicated in the pattern (all of this is written in notes in the pattern).
I have included links to the 3 Kittens Needle Arts YouTube channel within the pattern for video tutorials for: tubular cast on for 1x1 ribbing, tubular bind off for 1x1 ribbing, and tips on weaving in ends invisibly.
