Muntra is a basic hat for everyday use.
It’s a classic design, perfect for gifts.
The hat is very stretchy due to the ribbing.
It is available in eight sizes and two lengths: the short one is shown without a fold, the long one is shown with a folded brim.
The short hat may be worn with a folded brim as well, for a tight fit at a top.
You can easily adjust the length of the hat to your own preferences, if you wish to get a slouchier hat, or a broader fold at the brim.
Bear in mind that you will need more yarn if you wish to add some extra length.
Muntra is worked bottom up. It starts with Tubular Cast On, then the body is worked in the round, in 1x1 ribbing. The crown decreases are worked using DPNs or Magic Loop.
