Hats are a natural for circular knitting or knitting in the round. This project for circular-knit adult hats offers three brim styles: hemmed, ribbed, and rolled stockinette. Whichever brim you choose, the directions call for shaping the top. Work this hat in plain stockinette stitch in a colorful or fashion yarn, or customize it by working the colorwork pattern included here. Yarn: Desired yarn in the amount specified in the table. Note: These estimates are for a hat with a ribbed brim. The hemmed and rolled brims require slightly more yardage.
