If you want to make an adult hat use worsted weight yarn and size 8 needles.  Work in pattern until hat reaches 6 inches then start the decreases.

I created this pattern because I couldn’t find a ribbed hat pattern that I liked the decreases on.  I might have lost some hair in the process.  I frogged several times to figure this out.  Just ask the husband.
