My design ideas and advice: I love the stitch I use on this hat. It is so simple and so calming to knit, once you get used to the repeat. It is an easier take on the classic fisherman’s rib. I wear my Rice Rib Cowl every winter, it is great for keeping you lovely and warm. It always amazes me how warm you can feel just by wearing a scarf around your neck.In those crisp, chilly days autumn and winter there is nothing more cosy than a hand knit, knitted love to keep your neck warm and your heart warmer. There is a hat available in the same stitch.
