Simple Ribbed Hat

I saw a bright orange ribbed hat in a Ralph Lauren Children's ad and thought "ooooh, I love the color," and then I thought "hey, I could knit one of those right up!"

Pattern: my own - easy peasy lemon squeezy
Yarn: Jil Eaton Minnow Merino in Orangini - 2 skeins
Needles: size US 8

This was the perfect project to work on in between all those cables on the aran sweater I've got going on. It was a nice break and the color is so cheerful!

I am absolutely in love with the yarn. It is soooo soft for my little guy's head. And he loves to wear it! Especially on this chilly autumn morning at the lake.

If anyone is interested in this very simple pattern, please let me know and I will pass it along!

What a fantastic hat you made. I love it and if you are going to write the pattern up that would be great too. I would love to make one for my nephews.

That hat is so cute, and very pumpkin-esque! The photos are lovely. Great job!
