Pattern, Knit in the Round:

CO 68 STS, PM, join in the round

Round 1: *K1, P1*

When the stitches get too tight switch to DPNs or a longer cable and knit using the magic loop method.

Next round: *K3, K2TOG, SM*

Next round: *K2, K2TOG, SM*

Next round: *K1, K2TOG, SM*

Next round: *K2TOG, remove stitch marker*

End:

Without binding-off, cut the yarn leaving a 10” tail, pull it through the remaining STS, push through the top hole to the inside and then weave in the ends.

Block:

To block this hat 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, spritz it with some water, pat dry with a clean towel and let it dry overnight.
