Pattern, Knit in the Round:

Using US 11 {8mm} circular needles with a 16” {40cm} cable.

CO 48 STS, PM, join in the round.



Rounds 1-4: *K1, P1*

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



Rounds 6-8: *[K2, P2 twice] K1 [P2, K2 twice] P1*

Rounds 12-14: *[P2, K2 twice] P1 [K2, P2 twice] K1*

Repeat rounds 6-17 one more time.

Modification Option:

For a slouchy hat knit rows 6-17 one more time.


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 1: *K7, K2TOG, PM*

Round 2: *K6, K2TOG, SM*

Round 3: *K5, K2TOG, SM*

Round 4: *K4, K2TOG, SM*

Round 5: *K3, K2TOG, SM*

Round 6: *K2, K2TOG, SM*

Round 7: *K1, K2TOG, SM*

Round 8: *K2TOG, remove stitch marker*



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.
