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


Decrease for the crown:

Round 48: *K* remove stitch markers as you come to them

Round 49: *K6, K2TOG, PM* {- 6 STS, 42 STS remaining}

Round 50: *K5, K2TOG, SM* {- 6 STS, 36 STS remaining}

Round 51: *K4, K2TOG, SM* {- 6 STS, 30 STS remaining}

Round 52: *K3, K2TOG, SM* {- 6 STS, 24 STS remaining}

Round 53: *K2, K2TOG, SM* {- 6 STS, 18 STS remaining}

Round 54: *K1, K2TOG, SM* {- 6 STS, 12 STS remaining}

Round 55: *K2TOG* {- 6 STS, 6 STS remaining} {Remove stitch markers as you come to them.}



Without binding-off, cut the yarn leaving a 10” {25cm} tail, pull it through the remaining STS, push through the top hole to the inside and then weave in the ends.



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.
