Double knit hat with ribbed brim

I am looking for a pattern for a double knit hat with a ribbed brim and can’t find one anywhere. This is for a man who prefers plainer things, and I don’t want to do colorwork, but a few stripes would be fine.

I have a pattern but it doesn’t have the ribbed brim. Could I just do a 1x1 or 2x2 rib?


I like 2x2 ribbing for hats. No particular reason, it seems to look better to me. I would think you could add ribbing to almost any hat pattern.

I just made one using the DK Mariner’s hat pattern with a simple change to 1x1 ribbing after cast on. I wish I had gone down a few needle sizes for the ribbing but the recipient loved it. Another on my needles now that looks a lot better… but I’m trying 2x2 ribbing after this. Rib band DK hat
