Knit Flat {Back & Forth}:

Using size US 8 {5mm} straight needles


Switch to size US 9 {5.5mm} straight needles

Rows 1-36: *K2, P2*, approx 6 ½” {17cm}

Rows 37-73: *K* in garter stitch, approx 5 ½” {14cm}


Decrease for the crown:

Row 74: *K4, K2TOG, PM*

Row 75: *K, SM*

Row 76: *K3, K2TOG, SM*

Row 77: *K, SM*

Row 78: *K2, K2TOG, SM*

Row 79: *K, SM*

Row 80: *K1, K2TOG, SM*

Row 81: *K, SM*

Row 82: *K2TOG, SM*

Row 83: *K2TOG, remove stitch marker* {approx. 6 STS remaining}



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.
