Pattern, Knit in the Round:

CO 44 STS, PM, join in the round.

Round 1: *K1,P1*

Round 2: *K*

Repeat rounds 1 & 2 for 13” {33cm}, or desired length

 

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.
