This hat is very easy to size up or down from the sizes given. Simply add or subtract sts in a multiple of 4 and work the crosswise ridges as instructed until you have only 2 sts in ribbing at the center of the Hat. Then complete the Hat as instructed. When sizing, keep in mind that for every 4 sts you add or subtract, you will also add or subtract 1/3″ (8 mm) to the height of the Hat, in order to complete the crosswise ridges.
Stitch Patterns
2×2 Rib (multiple of 4 sts + 2; 1-row repeat)
Row 1 (RS): K2, *p2, k2; repeat from * to end.
Row 2: Knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts as they face you.
Repeat Row 2 for 2×2 Rib.
1×1 Rib (multiple of 2 sts; 1-row repeat)
All rows: *K1, p1; repeat from * to end.
CO 98 (106) sts. Begin 2×2 Rib.
Work even for 4 rows.
Shape Hat
Row 1 (RS): K6, work in 2×2 Rib to last 6 sts, knit to end.
Row 2: Knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts as they face you.
Row 3: Repeat Row 1.
Row 4: K8, work to last 8 sts, knit to end.
Row 5: Repeat Row 2.

Note: You are creating “crosswise ridges” of three rows of St st, alternating with 3 rows of Reverse St st, at the beginning and end of every row, with the 2×2 Rib continuing in the center.
Rows 19-64 (70): Continue until 2 sts remain in the 2×2 Rib in the center of the hat, increasing the number of knit sts worked at the beginning and end of every third row by 2, decreasing the number of 2×2 Rib sts worked in the center of the hat by 2 on each side, and working all intervening rows by knitting the knit sts and purling the purl sts. Break yarn.
Transfer first 49 (53) sts to spare needle, with point facing towards center of work. Using Kitchener Stitch (see Special Techniques, page 158), graft sts together, beginning at center of work.
CO 10sts. Begin 1×1 Rib. Work even until piece measures 12 (12 3/4)” [30.5 (32.5) cm] from the beginning, or to 3 3/4″ (9.5 cm) less than desired length.
Make Buttonhole
Row 1 (RS): Work 4 sts, k1-f/b, p1, pass second st on right-handed needle over last st, k1-f/b, pass third st on right-handed needle over last 2 sts, work to end.
Row 2: Work 3 sts, p2tog, k2, p1, k1, p2tog, work to end.
*Work even for 7 rows. Repeat buttonhole rows. Repeat from * once. Work even until piece measures 15 3/4 (16 1/2)” [40 (42) cm] from the beginning, ending with a WS row. BO all sts in pattern.
Block pieces lightly. Sew side edge of neckband to CO edge of hat, beginning with CO edge of neckband flush with right edge of Hat. Sew button to neckband, so that when fastened, neckband fits comfortably around neck.
