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.
