I had one ball of Loops & Threads Charisma yarn (color: Sunny Day) and couldn't figure out what I could make with it. I used half a skein (100g/109 yards) to make this quick and easy ribbed hat. I did not make it in the round since I don't have 2 size 13 needles or DPNs, but it was an easy seam to sew up and I finished in under 3 hours (which is fast for me). Two-ply yarn was like knitting with two strands of yarn, but not difficult. Yarn is very soft.

I used size 13 needles because the yarn I used was slightly smaller than that recommended. Same cast on and cast off instructions made it just the right size for my 9-year-old.
My son's favorite colors
What a sweet model! The hat is wonderful; I love the colorway.
I am having trouble downloading the pattern - is anyone else? What am I doing wrong? Thanx!
The hat looks so warm and cozy, but I love the look on that strapping young man!! I love those freckles!!!
