When I was a child I always wanted asymmetrical things. I remember my mother explaining to me that one braid and one ponytail was not what people do; she may have been right, but I made this hat slightly asymmetrical anyway.
Size: M[L] (shown in size L)
Note: I used 2 skeins of Emu Florentine [51% Wool, 44% Acrylic, 5% Nylon]; 61 yards [56 m] per skein. The ribs may show much more if knit with a different yarn.
1 set US #9/5.5mm straight needles
Gauge: 12 sts / 14 rows to 4 inches [10cm]
