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 1-12: *P2, K4*

EXCEPT rounds 5 & 9: *P2, C4F*

Rounds 13-39: *K*

 

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 40: *K*

Round 41: *K4, K2TOG, PM* {-8 STS, 40 STS remaining}

Round 42: *K3, K2TOG, SM* {-8 STS, 32 STS remaining}

Round 43: *K2, K2TOG, SM* {-8 STS, 24 STS remaining}

Round 44: *K1, K2TOG, SM* {-8 STS, 16 STS remaining}

Round 45: *K2TOG, remove stitch marker* {-8 STS, 8 STS remaining}

 

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.
