Pattern, Knit in the Round:

CO 44 STS, PM, join in the round.

All rounds: *K1, P1* for 14”, 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.

Blocking:

I didn’t block my hat, but if you want to block it, here’s how I block hats: 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.

Abbreviations:

* – * – repeat between *

CO – cast-on {long-tail cast-on method}

DPNs – double pointed needles

K – knit stitches {K1 means to knit 1 stitch}

P – purl stitches {P2 means to purl 2 stitches}

PM – place stitch marker

STS – stitches
