Pattern, Knit in the Round:

CO 44 STS, PM, join in the round.

Rounds 1-17: *K2, P2*

Rounds 18-45:

Rounds ODD: *K1, P1*

Rounds EVEN: *P1, K1*


Note {Optional}:

When the stitches get too tight switch to a longer cable and knit using the magic loop method.


Decrease for the crown:

Round 46: *P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K2TOG, K1, P1, K1, P1, K2TOG, PM* P1, SM {purl the last stitch} {38 STS remain}

Round 47: *K1, P1, K1, P1, K2TOG, P1, K1, P1, K2TOG, SM* K1, SM {Knit the last stitch} {32 STS remain}

Round 48: *P1, K1, P1, K2TOG, K1, P1, K2TOG* P1, SM {purl the last stitch} {26 STS remain}

Round 49: *K1, P1, K2TOG, P1* K1, SM {Knit the last stitch} {20 STS remain}

Round 50: *P1, K2TOG, K1, K2TOG* P1, SM {purl the last stitch} {14 STS remain}

Round 51: *K2TOG, remove stitch marker* X 6 {8 STS remain}



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.
