This is a simple pattern with almost infinite variations. Beginning knitters can knit a plain version like the one I've given in this pattern; more advanced knitters can choose to incorporate cables, colorwork, and other patterns. You can also lengthen the rib by a few inches to make a hat with a roll-up brim.
