Ribbed Hat
Size 8 US dps needles or cable
Gauge 6 rows by 4 ½ stitches per 1 inch
Adult size
165 yards worsted weight

Pattern stitch
K1, k f/b, knit to last 2 stitches on needle, k f/b, k1 repeat for each needle. It may help to place stitch markers by increases, after a bit I increased to 8 dpns to keep stitches from sliding off needles.

Knit next round all needles
k = knit
k f/b = knit into the front and back of the next stitch
k2tog = knit 2 stitches together
1 by 1 ribbing = knit 1 stitch, purl 1 stitch, repeat always purling the purl stitches and knitting the knit stitches. Continue in this manner
