Stylish, cozy, and warm. This ribbed hat is knit using The Petite Wool from We Are Knitters. This yarn is so soft and warm. It is not itchy like some other wools, which makes it perfect for this style hat.

The ribbed beanie can be worn with the brim folded for a more fitted look or without the brim for a slouchy look.
