Pattern, Knit in the Round:

Using US 15 {10mm} circular needles with a 16” {40cm} cable.

CO 36 STS, PM, join in the round.

Round 1: P1, *K1, P3* K1 P2

Round 2: *K3, P1*

Repeat rounds until your hat measures about 12” {30cm} tall.



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.



* – * – repeat between *

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

DPNs – double pointed needles

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