Easy Like Sunday Morning Knitted Hat



I woke up on a beautiful Sunday morning and decided to knit a hat!
LOL!!!
Here’s the recipe :-)


Materials:
Berroco Pure Merino 3 skeins
US size 7 16 inch circular knitting needle (for ribbing)
US size 9 16 inch circular knitting needle
US size 9 double pointed knitting needles (for crown shaping when there are so few stitches that the circular doesn’t work anymore :-)


PATTERN STITCH:


K2, p2, Rib worked in the rnd (multiple of 4 sts)


Rnd 1: *K2, p2; rep from * around.


Rep Rnd 1 for K2, p2 Rib worked in the rnd.


HAT


With US size 7 16 inch circular needle cast on 93 sts.
Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by slipping the first st on right hand needle to the left hand needle and knit 2 stitches together. You will have 92 stitches.
Be careful not to twist sts.


Work in K2, p2 Rib worked in the round until piece measures 6 inches from the beginning.


Next (Decrease) Rnd: Change to US size 9 16 inch circular needle


(K29, k2tog) twice, knit to end of rnd - 90 sts rem at the end of this rnd.


Work in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) until piece measures 9 inches from beginning.


Crown Shaping


Note: You will need to change to US size 9 double pointed needles (dpn’s) when stitches have been sufficiently decreased.


Rnd 1:(Decrease Rnd): *K8, place marker, k2tog; rep from * to end of rnd - 81 sts.


Rnd 2: Knit.


Rnd 3: (Decrease Rnd): *K to marker, slip marker, k2tog; rep from * to end of rnd - 72 sts.


Rnd 4: Knit.


Rep last 2 rnds (rounds 3 and 4) 6 more times (7 times total)- 18 sts rem after all decreases have been completed.


Remove markers while working this next row:


Next (Decrease) Rnd: *K2tog; rep from * to end of rnd - 9 sts.


Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread tail through rem sts and pull to gather to make a tight circumference. Knot securely and weave in ends :-)
