  • 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 7: *K1, K2TOG, SM*
  • Round 8: *K2TOG, remove stitch marker*
  • End:
  • 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.
  • 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.
