Mabrey Hat

Mabrey Hat by September Knits. This is knit form the bottom-up starting with the brim in a 1x1 ribbing pattern using a worsted-spun DK weight yarn. The ribbing is long enough to be folded which adds to its fit and warmth. Stockinette and stranded color-work are then worked in the hat body. After the color-work chart is completed and hat body height is achieved, the crown shaping begins. The hat end is then grafted together to give it a flawless final touch.  If desired, craft a pompom with extra yarn and add it to the top.
