So I made this yesterday after finishing the second sleeve for my sweater. I needed something to do as I walk around campus, and I love my circulars for this hat.
It is a very easy pattern:
K1,P1 rib for 1 inch
Knit all remaining rounds to 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 inches
decrease by K2tog, K8 first round; K2tog, K7 second round....
It makes a very cool 10 point spiral decrease. This hat is for a buddy of mine, made to cover his ears, and I am making another one for another friend right now. I have decided that everyone I know that would wear one, is getting a hat for Christmas......my hands may never forgive me.
