Anker’s Hat is a simple hat constructed with segments of rib. The hat is worked bottom-up in the round, on small circumference circular needles at first, and then the decreases at the top are worked on double pointed needles. However, you can choose to knit all the hat with a longer circular needle using the magic loop technique throughout. Measure the head circumference of the intended wearer to decide which size to knit. As an orientation, the two smallest sizes would correspond to children sizes while the two largest sizes are meant for adults.
