I am obsessed with ribbing right now. I think ribbing is so underrated. I love the graphic stripe that you get with a rib, and I love the way that it looks like stockinette when it is not stretched out. This is a basic four paneled beanie with a 4 point decrease. It has two panels each of stockinette and 1 x 1 rib. Beanies are classic, and suitable for everyone. I have included sizing from Baby to Adult large.
