Pattern, Knit in the Round:

CO 40 STS, PM, join in the round.

Rounds 1-20: *K1, P1*

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 21: *K2TOG, K1, P1, PM*

Round 22: *K2TOG, P1, SM* {20 STS remaining}

Round 23: *K2TOG, remove stitch marker* {10 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.
