Pattern, Knit in the Round:

  • Using size US 11 {8mm} Circular Needles with a 16” {40cm} Cable
  • CO 44 STS, PM, join in the round.
  • Rounds 1-32: *K2, P2*, knit for approximately 10″ {25 cm}, or until desired length.
  •  
  • Note {Optional}:
  • 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 33: *K2, P2TOG, PM* {-11 STS, 33 STS remaining}
  • Round 34: *K2TOG, P1, SM* {-11 STS, 22 STS remaining}
  • Round 35: *K2TOG, remove stitch marker* {-11 STS, 11 STS remaining}
  •  
  • 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.
