​Simple Knit Ribbed Hat Pattern

You'll need:

US size 8 16" circular needles
Worsted weight yarn, this is Vanna's Choice
Crochet hook or tapestry needle

For a child's sized hat cast on 72 stitches (I use the long tail cast on)

Note: If you would like to make the hat smaller or larger simply subtract or add stitches in multiples of 8 and knit it slightly shorter or longer respectively.
Place a marker and join in the round.
Work in k2, p2 (knit two, purl two) for 9 inches. If you would like a color blocked hat, k2, p2 for 3 inches, switch colors for for the remaining 6 inches. (Note: this is my favorite way to switch colors without having to fuss with weaving in ends)

Decrease as follows:

Note: you can switch to double points or magic loop if you'd like. When the stitches become few I simply pull my cord out from the middle of my work (adjusting it regularly) and muscle through, totally doable and easier for me than fussing with switching needles.
Rnd 1: k2, p2, k2, p2tog (purl 2 together), repeat pattern to marker (63 stitches)
Rnd 2: k2, p2, k2, p1, repeat pattern to marker
Rnd 3: k2, p2tog, k2, p1, repeat pattern to marker (54 stitches)
Rnd 4: k2, p1, k2, p1, repeat pattern to marker
Rnd 5: k2, p1, k2tog (knit 2 together), p1, repeat pattern to marker (45 stitches)
Rnd 6: k2, p2tog, p1, repeat to pattern marker (36 stitches)
Rnd 7: k2, p2tog, repeat to pattern marker (27 stitches)
Rnd 8: k2tog, p1, repeat to pattern marker (18 stitches)
Rnd 9: k2tog, repeat to end (8 stitches)
Break yarn and pull it through the remaining 8 stitches.

Weave in the ends.

Hat without pom pom

Optional: Add a giant pom pom. I made mine by wrapping lots of yard around a large canning jar, slip off the bundle, tie in the middle, cut the loops, and trim like crazy.
