Galway Bay - Adult's & Child's Ribbed Hats

Well I have had so many lovely comments about my ribbed ladies hat knitted in DK - and requests for something similar in Aran weight yarn - so cosy for the cold days ahead ........ 

So here you are ~  this is so simple and quick to knit! And the stretchy nature of this hat means that, if you are knitting this as a gift, you don't have to worry too much about size.
