I actually made two of these hats but the first one was made with DK weight and was a little too small.  This is the second Christmas hat for my dad.  I gave the first one to my sister when she was helping me take pictures because it fits her.  I made the second one with heavy worsted weight to make it just a little bigger.

It’s a little annoying to make because the 1X1 ribbing can be hard on the hands but it is nice and simple in both looks and knitting it.
