The Hipster Hat is worked bottom up in a 2x2 rib stitch. The bottom has a folded edge of about 6 (6) 8 (8) cm (you can do a double folded edge if you knit the hat extra-long, but bear in mind that this will require more yarn than suggested). The decreases at the top of the head are done by working 2 sts together on each side of two knit sts a total of 4 times across the round.
The Hipster Hat can be knit a bit long for it to get a little “hipster top” or to a length where it fits your head snuggly. The Hipster Hat is for men, women children and babies.
