  • Round 5: *[K1, P1 4 times] INC1* {increase 6 STS}
  •

  •  
  • Repeat rounds 6-17 one more time.

  •  
  • Crown:
  • Switch to a longer cable, to knit in the magic loop method, or DPN’s when the stitches get too tight.
  • *K7, K2TOG*
  • *K6, K2TOG*
  • *K5, K2TOG*
  • *K4, K2TOG*
  • *K3, K2TOG*
  • *K2, K2TOG*
  • *K1, K2TOG*
  • *K2TOG*
  •  
  • Finishing:
  • Without binding off, cut or break the yarn, leaving a long tail.
  • Using a darning needle, thread the tail through the remaining stitches, pull tight and weave in on the WS.
  • Weave in your beginning tail.
  •  
  • Blocking:
  • Block, if desired. I blocked mine. It’s a little weird, but I use a saucer. Like a teacup and saucer. ;) I put it inside the hat, so the bottom “swirl” is in the center of the saucer and the saucer is bulging outward. I lightly wet it with a spray bottle and press a dry towel on the “swirl” to soak up any excess moisture and let it dry overnight. I find that I have to play with it for awhile before I’m happy with it, but once I’ve worn it a few times, it’s shaped just as I like with very little effort.
